'92-'96 Impala/Caprice/Roadmaster spindles on a Chevy C10

I bought a '95 Impala for a donor car for engine, trans., wheels.
The control arms are a very different mount and shape than the '73-87 C10. The Impala arms angle backward and are not symetric.
1) Has anyone ever used '92-'96 Impala/Caprice/Roadmaster spindles on a Chevy C10? Would be a great way to get disk brakes for free.
2) If you have done this type of swap, what problems did you overcome?
Thanks

Re: '92-'96 Caprice/Roadmaster front spindles on a Chevy C10

Thanks for your help.
I was looking for info on swapping front spindles and brakes.
Mistyped my original inquiry. My Donor is a '95 Caprice/Roadmaster.
Thanks

??? 73-87 already have disc brakes. Unless I misunderstood what you are wanting to do, the swap seems pointless to me.

Plus you gain no real up sizing by using B-body stuff on a square..
