No. You have some bad information. The direction of the lower ball joint taper on the Chevelle spindle is opposite to that of the '55-'57 spindle so they do not bolt up. Also, you can't use the chevelle hubs either, they move the wheels outward 7/8". You need '61-'68 Impala hubs.I have a set of front brakes for a 1966 Chevelle hubs, spindles, brakes and everything any chance that would just bolt on?
It's been stated on this site in other topics that '79-'81 Trans Am rear rotors fit on the Impala hubs. Are all of the '61-'68 Impala drum hubs the same? I have a new set of Bendix rotors purchased from Summit Racing and the Impala hub OD is too large to fit into the rotor. The rotor is 6.25 ID whereas the hub is 6.3125 OD. I positively have '65 drum hubs as I removed them personally. Can you shed any light on the situation? I will turn down the hub OD to fit, but I'd like the correct information presented to others considering the swap.Chevelle hubs have a different offset and won't work.
Post #6 mentions .011 on the hub pilot, nothing about the OD of the hub. The I saw that weeks ago, before I purchased the rotors. So, I'm still at a loss regarding my fitment issue (explanation, not resolution).Read post #6 This is what I have done using 61-68 hubs turned down, and firebird rotors.
