Re: 1st Gen Blazer with 2nd Gen Blazer spindles for C6 Z06 brakes....
you take old rotors, and turn them down into hubs. Then slide the hat-style vette or LS1 rotors onto them. I believe you have to trim a little of the spindle away, for the abutments to fit. Also, your track width will increase more (to compensate for your newly made "hub").
A good example is Hi_i'm_sean, look in his thread. I believe he is running LS brakes, not vettes. But you can see what he did with the rotors turned to hubs.
A lot of guys do it this way, because it keeps them from having to buy New spindles (especially if you need drop spindles, they arent ****ing cheap). I wanted to keep my overall track width as close to what i have as possible, so I opted to go with the blazer spindles.
Also, why are you sold on it being "Z06"? They only difference in calipers was color of the paint. I think the rotors may have been a little thicker, but their diam is the same.
