Im doing a Blazer conversion on my 86 GN, but heres the difference, I have a set of Baer T4 front brakes, for a 1998 Camaro.. I was going to put on a camaro I was running for a while, well sold the Camaro, bought my GN and now I want to make them work on My GN. If I do the Blazer spindles, is there an adapter?? What about just keep the stock spindle and dropping an adapter on them?

Thanks for any help

Kevin

Kevin , there are several threads on here about the subject, but things can be a little confusing. Not sure right off what variables in mounting the baer t-4's may present of any, but basically 2 methods for mounting 98 to 02 camaro calipers & rotors.
Doing a spindle swap to the 2wd blazer spindles with the sealed bearing hubs, you bolt on a steel plate adapter to spindle , then bolt the camaro abutement bracket to it . Can make bracket off internet pics or buy one from places such as core 3.

Other older cheaper method is modifying original spindles & making or buying hubs and making or buying bracket. Very recent thread here by 81 cutlass, so I don't need to explain it..
Both methods require a little brake line modification.

Talked to Tobin at Kore3, wont work with Blazer spindles, as the Baer T4's are bigger with the radial mounted caliper, So I bought the adapter from FlynBy performance, bought some Hubs for the C6 rotors, and got some spindles all for 450 bucks... So I can run my T4 again
