You will need to do your own research on this.....call Wilwood's Tech Department.  I have B-Body Spindles and run 15" Cragar Draglites.

I appreciate clearing that up for me. Was it a direct swap, mostly, or heavily modified to work.
Forgive me, but when I hear B-Body, I think early Mopar or Impala.

Lawrence,

Not much to tell....very easy bolt in....if you want large rotor and calipers.....the stock spindles are just too small.
You can either go with a pricey after market upgrade (nothing wrong with that).....or you can go a cheaper route.
I went to my local junk yard and picked up a complete set of spindles, rotors and backing plates from a low mileage 1996 Impala.
I knew the rotors were good as it was a low mileage car....I cut the rotors, installed all new bearings, seals....added my new Wilwood Calipers and stainless steal hoses and brake lines.
This was back in 1997. When I do jump back on the Chevelle.....I will yet AGAIN be going a complete new route and will be selling off the entire front suspension including the upper and lower a arms.

Dan
