I'm about to remove the b-body spindles & calipers and 12" f-body rotors from my 86' SS. I've had this setup on the car for 15 years and while the braking power is superb, especially with the b-body master cylinder and booster, I'm going in a different direction. The rotors are still in nice shape and even the pads are usable. I forget the rotor brand I used but the pads are Hawk's performance friction. About 20-25k or so miles I'd say of use. Not really sure what the demand might or might not be or value for this. I'll put it up for $150 plus shipping obo. Shipping won't be cheap due to weight. Parts are all in good used shape, I painted the spindles and calipers black way back when and it's held up, car was never driven in salt or much moisture and the parts came from the desert when I bought them.

Global West UCA's, still in great shape and needed for this swap. New it is well over $500, I'd like $300 for mine. http://www.globalwest.net/chevelle-...ontrol-arms-1978-1979-1980-1981-198.html

Here is an old picture from when it was put on the car, at least gives a rough idea. I can get better pictures upon request or when I do remove the parts.

Bump, now selling the Global West UCA's too. Del-A-Lum bushings, still in great shape.

Would package together for $400

Here are some better pictures, removed the drivers side this weekend. Surprised how much life was left in the pads even.

Rotor rust is surface rust from sitting/moisture this winter, will wipe away. Ball joints and Del A Lum bushings are still in great shape, the arms look almost new.

These brakes are better than the Blazer/ZQ8 brakes (I have that setup on another car to know/compare first hand) and still fit in a stock 15" wheel unlike many other big brake swaps.

Will sell the b-body spindles/calipers for $100 plus shipping

Can add the rotors if the buyer pays the additional shipping cost (about 50lbs more)
