what rotor you use with this combo I tried to set this up once and the std. small metric rotor was not backset far enough and made it impossable to install outer pad. I have seen rotors that looked just like the rotors we where trying to use but was backset farther.

Stock impala rotor and spindle with Harris adaptor for small caliper and some slight grinding on caliper and or spindle and your good to go.

So is the impala rotor and the small metric rotor the same diamiter I am about 98% sure it is the small metric rotor used on big metric rotor.

Big metric spindle with big metric rotor with small metric caliper. The big metric rotors are different sizes than small metric.

custom is right , and also watch your outer bearing size on the impala spindle , it get smaller the newer you get. we just went thru this, jet was some help with this too,
