Has anyone found a Ford rotor that will fit the small metric Spindles? Or even a Mopar Rotor....

If you want bigger brakes use the GM B-body, I'm pretty sure there isn't anything smaller than the metric rotors.

I was having some trouble getting a local shop to re-drill my rotors to a different pattern. So I figured what the heck, maybe someone out there has found a ford or mopar rotor that fits using the 4.5 pattern. I just wanted my fronts to match my backs.

Man, it must suck to live by you! I can't believe a shop would turn away such an easy job. It's prolly a liability thing for them. I guess the best advice I can give is look for more machine shops, or try to find a place on the internet that'll take work by mail. Good luck dude.

Find a local wheel shop that has or sells wheel paterns(bolt lay out) then redrill them your self on the drill press works for use been redrilling for years cost about 60$ the first time in bits then free

We use Pinto spindles and rotors drilled 4 1/2".I think Speedway sells them now.You will have to make your own caliper bracket and use GM metric calipers.
