stock 5 on 5 rotors are 12" and need a spindle for a 12" rotor (for proper caliper location).

77 and later fullsize chevys (in most cases) come with the 5 on 5, 12" (x 1" thick) rotors and have a "2" cast on the spindle .... this is what you are looking for.

chances are the spindles you have are a good spares for someone who runs the 79-81 large outer bearing Camaro spindles, they should be easy to trade for some #2's
