Sideways, you need a spindle from any 1978 to 1987 GM G Body 108" metric frame(Monte Carlo,Gran Prix,Regal,or Olds Cutlass)..I'm
Not sure about the larger body cars that are considered metric frame, but the front end parts might work.

Be carful some of the 78 to 80 mid size have smaller wheel bearings 81 and up are bigger either one of the spindels will bolt on but the rotors won't interchange . I think s10 truck spindels will work also.

the spindles on the chevy metric cars are longer than the others so if you get one from another metric you will have to use the rotor from it too

I use impala spindles on my monte frame. They are a little taller and wider than the monte spindles. Thus you also get the larger brakes from the impala.

74-78 Camaro Spindles bolt in and will also raise the front roll center. Be sure to
install them in pairs, don't mix the Camaro
piece with stock Metric Spindles.
