lift spindles and LS1 brakes

I hoping someone here has ran into same issue before.

I got all my parts together and ran into some major fitment issues.

Lift Spindle

Caliper abutment mounting bracket

new hubs with extended studs

with new pads and rotors. had them sandblasted and repainted. I go to mock up assembly and first notice some extra trimming will be needed because of the higher spindle shaft. I can work around that, but the bracket for the caliper brackets issuppose to be drilled and tapped out of the two outer dust shield holes. One of which is nearly mm's from the edge of the spindle.. Not going to happen.

Played around with trying to find other mounting locations to tap into but feel im going to run into alot of trouble with keeping everything inline.

Figured someone HOPEFULLY has a solution for this.

Went along these guidelines for the install how the f s and g body share the same spindes.

Brakes are off a 98-02 camaro/fire bird

Re: lift spindles and LS1 brakes

side by side of old and new spindle and the bracket used to mount.

the "ears" aka origional caliper mounting get cut off so the bracket can be mounted and have clearance with the bigger caliper

the two outer holes on the bracket go to the 2 dust shield mounting locations that get drilled and tapped. notice the one on the lift spindle is right at the edge and would not be able to be tapped. even if I could still that location with only that much metal was not designed to be load bearing.

backside of the lift spindle. the larger holes are the origional caliper mounts and the smaller/further apart holes lower are whrer the bracket would be mounted

caliper and bracket mocked up to see clearance

like i said i played around with a few ideas of where else i could drill and tap with just putting the caliper clocked at a different angle, but im afraid im going to have issues once I load the caliper around the rotor and it not fit right or at all. the amount of room for error on that is very minimal.
