A few years ago I ran Pinto spindles with GM metric rotors. It worked great. Next year I'm going to try Aerostar rotors that way the bolt pattern is the same all around the car.

a granada rotor will work on a pinto spindle with the pinto bearings and inner seal. the granada rotor is 11" and the aerostar is 10". you can get adapters to fit the pinto spindle with a GM metric caliper. works real nice with the granada rotor, 5 on 4.5".

chevelle lowers will fit pinto spindles, you have to ream the hole out a little to make them fit and get the correct angle for roll center and bumpsteer purposes.
