    well g body and S-10 stuff swap out, so i have been told.

    I have done 12" and 13" rotor kits for S-10's 2" drop spindles.

    There's a number of ways to go on both stock and dropped spindles, the bracketry is the same: 12" LS1, and I'm sure a 12" C4 setup could also work on the fronts. As mentioned you could swap the spindles out for stock '98-up Blazer/Envoy spindles which use a dual piston 12" setup stock which is very close to a LS1 design.

    As for the rears, what axle flanges are on the 9" rear?

    for those who rae doing the ls1 brake swap is it simple as it seems? all you need is machined hub, and brackets you can buy? what did those of you who have done the swap used for hubs? thanks
