OK...maybe I need to get some parts clear in my head and I'm probably mixed up a bit. This is what I mean by "ZQ8" spindles. Similar to the pic posted above for the 4x4 trucks, it has a bolt on hub instead of a spindle:

I also finished up the bracket template for the C5 brakes onto the hub-style spindle I have so they will be good to go as soon as I get some steel brackets made.

i'm still unsure here, but will i have to go to the 98+ blazer style in order to get these brakes? i'm interested in the C5 13" set up.

Ed,
Couldn't quite make out the spindle detail from the pic, (brakes look sweet though!) but if they are from an S-truck, and have a bolt-on hub that's sealed/plugged in the back, (no axle shaft hole) then they are 2WD '98+ Blazer units, not ZQ8.

ZQ8 was/is a suspension option package that included quite a bit, but the spindles remained the same as the standard S-trucks. That is, one piece spindles with the bearings incorporated into the brake rotor.

One other small but important detail I forgot about until now.

I have a pair of LS1 calipers and rotors with all the hardware that goes with them.

I thought I could use the carrier brackets from the LS1 calipers on the C5 calipers since they are so similar, but it doesn't look good. Similar, but definitely not the same.
Plus, Nate probably wants the LS1 setup complete.

Add a pair of C5 caliper carriers to the list there Ed.

Wow, i wish this info had been around a few years ago, before i bought my Baer 13" track system, but i did get the 2 pice rotors and it is built on B-body spindles so i cna use the Hotchkis upper control arms, but this setup wouidl have been way cheaper, i think i paid somethinglike 1800 with freight for the spindles and complete brakes and upper control arms.

I believe the Baer setup is based off the C4 vette, but uses a mustang cobra caliper instead of the gm spec caliper becasue its stronger. Would i notice any differance from my setup by going to a C5 vette 13" setup? Now mind you the Baer setup hasnt been drivenon yet the truck is still getting built, but i do have this same setup on my daily driver cavalier and the stopping power is amazing.

Woudl i be better off with what i have or going with a C5 setup??

Okay so I'm late getting here but am I understanding correctly that there is gonna be a bracket set up to put 13" C5 rotors and calipers on the '98+ Blazer spindles? If so how much and how fast can I get them.... Seriously send me a PM if the brackets are the right price and I can source the rest of the parts I'll buy them tomorrow. Really I mean it.

Yeah he was on vacation he called me Sunday, the brackets for the '98+ spindles should be ready early Jan maybe end of Dec prolly Jan though, he's just gotta finish tweaking them and then get them made and plated. I'll call him next week to get an update. They should bolt up and add NO trackwidth to the front use the C5 rotor and either the LS1 or C5 caliper.
