Upgrade To 12" Front Brakes

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

Maybe I missed it but I'm still confused about one detail here.

You mention using the Nbody spindle and Nbody hub - Then you mention the FBody rotor and caliper/bracket. How does a hub that has a lug pattern of 5x115 fit a rotor with a lug pattern of 5x120.7?

What am I missing? I'd like to make a trip to the yards tomorrow and hunt for some parts but am still unclear about these details.

Any 98-02 FBody 12" rotor will fit that hub/bearing assembly. I don't have the actual dimensions on hand, but they work on my car. I'm sure I could google it but it's a close enough fit to work with no issues. And believe me when I say I've put these brakes through their paces...
