Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

Care to share where you picked those up from?

Can you let us know what the weight difference is between these and the stock spindles? The closest to an apples to apples comparison would probably be spindle, hub and rotor. thanks.

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

Are they the same height as the stock spindles or are they a tall design to improve camber and roll center?

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

Also, do these have the same caliper mounting points as the CPP modular spindles? I would love to use these in combination with a big brake kit that is not wilwood.

From my understanding from reading and what the kid told me from Wilwood. These will only work with the Wilwood big break kit.

Thanks, I know they are a 2.5" drop, but I meant is the overall height from ball joint taper to ball joint taper a taller measurement? Like most aftermarket AFX drop spindles that are a "tall" spindle for improved camber.

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

Pretty sure they use the stock dimensions. This is from Wilwood's website.

I used .500" taller upper ball joints from QA1 to help with camber gain. Details and camber gain measurements are on page 27 of my "Goldilocks" build thread. Depending on the amount of weight loss I may be trading in my CPP spindles for these if I can make my 2nd gen CTS-V brakes work on them. I still needed caliper brackets for the CPP spindles anyway, and I already have the late style ball joints so these will bolt straight on.

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

Can someone post the weight of the new spindles and hubs?


I have weighed both stock-style 12" disc brake spindles/rotors/calipers, and my CPP Modular spindles/hubs and 2nd gen CTS-V rotors/calipers for comparison. As you can see, the StopTech rotors are very heavy, so I'll probably end up using something lighter. The factory dual-cast rotors are lighter but GM recommends replacing them every pad change so they won't last long on a truck built for the track. I thought the StopTech rotors would last longer.


12" Stock-Style Disc Conversion Parts:
  • Spindle/Rotor Assembly with bearings, seals, and pads- 55 pounds
  • Caliper.- 10 pounds, 3.7 oz


Total assembly- 65 Pounds 3.7 oz, each side.



CPP Modular Spindles, CPP forged hubs, 2nd gen CTS-V Calipers, and StopTech slotted iron rotors- 2nd gen CTS-V fitment:
  • Rotor 28 pounds, 4.0 oz
  • Caliper 8 pounds 14.9 oz
  • Hub 5 pounds, 2.0 oz
  • Spindle 18 pounds, 0.9 oz

Total- 60 pounds 5.8 oz

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

This thread is a few years old but has anyone made a bracket to bolt c5/c6 calipers to the pro spindle? I see wilwood sells a lot of brackets but I am not sure if any will work.

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

That bracket is for a totally different caliper type.

You might not be able to with the spacing of the mounting points of both caliper and spindle. Look in my build thread I used those spindles on some 2018 Silverado calipers. Pretty much same as the nnbs with 13" rotors. Custom designed spacers and bracket to fit the rotor which was the be best option for my 17"




Only decent progress pic in MDF

Re: Wilwood C10 Drop Spindles

It looks like they turned out good, I was hoping to find an easy adaptor to throw a set of vette or newer camaro brembo calipers on them.

Nope, none that i could find.. had to design and make my own. Having a small 17" wheel limited me to the stock size rotor.
