Drop spindles for 1955 2nd series

To achieve the slammer look I like in my truck Iíve had to bottom out my coil overs and letís just say the ride is ok and I get a loud knock when I hit a pot hole , so I called CPP and Iím looking for a 2-2.5Ē drop spindle so I get get the lowered look but get some bump out of my suspension! So the numbers come back as a G-body spindle or a camaro spindle , so Iím assuming I just buy drop spindles for either and theyll work right or would the spindles off a factory c10 work minus the fact that I need a 5x4.75 bolt pattern
Curious as too what some of you are running .

Re: 329354 RH spindle question

C 10 is an entirely different spindle than the G body.S-10. Camaro never used the Metric spindle or that G body and S 10 use. They used the same as B body though 81 and then went to struts in 82 and ran metric rotors and calipers.

Re: 329354 RH spindle question

Dang, I knew that tool 73/77 Chevelle, Regal, Cutlass and Tempest. I've swapped front end parts from those to the second gen Camaros more than once when we had to use wrecking yard parts rather than new parts.

Camaros never went to the G body/S-10 A arms or spindles.

The dirt track brigade mixes and matches some pieces to use the B body 12 inch rotors on G bodies but it isn't viable for a street rig.

if 329354 is the number on your spindle, those should work.
