Generally, 16" or bigger. They may fit with some narrow (low backspacing) 15"s, but that would be counterproductive, could cause front brake lockup just from not enough rubber on the road. 8)

If you're doing a skinny Drag Lite, don't bother with the LS brakes up front, you won't have enough tire to use em. Beef up the rears, :wink: 8)
My old Vega used to stop from 135~140 in the 1/4, with no problems, with stock Vega Front brakes, and Old Vista Cruiser station wagon brakes in the rear, (12"x3" drums). It had skinny front runners up front, and soft compound 11.5"~12.5" wide tires in the rear. 8)

Thanks guys. I'm currently working on caliper adapters to work with the 98+ blazer spindles, so hopefully more to come.

Well, I got my parts yesterday and they look to be done very well, with the brackets and all. This unit came w/ studs installed and the machine work looks good. He even sent the seals with it!

I would recommend this guy to all of you! Thanks Stephen! :D

From everything I have read is that the ls1 camaro brakes aren't worth putting on the blazer spindles. If you put good pads (hawk etc.) on the blazer brakes they will outstop a stock ls1 setup. Also the price of the drop spindles if you wanted to go that route, thats why flynbye doesnt offer that package. The 13" vette brakes on a blazer spindle is a different story.

94 Sonoma: SinistR SonoMa - Currently 2.2 T5, tubular uca's tall upper and lower ball joints, zq8 front and rear sway bar, drop spindles, 4cyl springs cut 3/4 loop, disc brake rear. Future mods LS1 front brakes, frame stiffening, camaro 3.4 block with 3400 pistons, ported 3500 top end and undecided on the cam. Want to keep the motor obdII so that will be fun. Also gonna run a camaro t5. After all the kinks are worked out I might screw it up again and add a hair dryer.

Are you still making the brackets currently? Whats the easiest way to pay for them? Id order 2 sets today if so.

Also.. do you make an adapter bracket to use the same ls1 abutment and caliper with a 13" Corvette rotor?

Is $140 still the price for the hubs and brackets? I'm having a hard time finding anyone in my area willing to cut the rotors down to just the hubs. I'm hoping that you are still willing to make the hubs. I'm trying to put some money together to finish my truck and brakes are on the top of the list.

Thanks
