Does anyone have a list of rotors/bearings that will fit on 1979 camaro spindles so I can put the 5x5 wheel pattern on the front of my car? Any info would be appreciated!
Thanks

the 5 on 5 rotors are 12" (vs. 11" for Camaro)making your caliper mountings wrong (and posibly in the way). Your best bet is to take the complete spindle and hub from a 78 or later fullsize (large outer bearings stating in 79 or 80 I believe). These spindles have a large "2" cast on thier inside.
....Or you can (as I have in the past) re-drill your 79-81 Camaro rotors for 5 on 5.
Good luck

If you match up the bearings you can take the 5x5 impala 12" rotor and turn down the diameter one inch and it will go right on.

will camaro calipers work with the cut down rotors? You are talking about the later (1") Impala rotors I assume.
