Im new guy on this forum. im building a sort of updated/pro-tourer Chevelle-65 i have bought the Wilwood 140-2258-B kit, but must i change the spindles? must i buy Globals tubular a-arms to fit the B/F body spindles?
Whats the difference between 64-66 spindles and 67-? other then height on spindle?
Many question but im hoping for an answer soon.

383 I see you have pics of the Compomotive wheels. Have you bought them yet? They are possibly the nicest people on earth with the easiest update program. Just want to make sure they are BS'n.

The wheel are from Image in England but they are 3 piece wheels. 2900$ per set.
weighs 40% less then ordinary aluminum wheels.
Does anyone have the Wilwood 2285-kit mounted his/her Chevelle?

Putting a 2285 kit on a 3500 lbs A body for daily driver/pro-touring style driving would be suicide. Those teeny-tiny rotors wouldn't last a week under any kind of heavy use. You are better off with a 11" drum set-up than those "drag use only" kits from Wilwwod or Aerospace.
