Trying to figure out a 5 lug chevy front disk brake spindle conversion for my 1981 Chevy Luv!
Going to order some DHP upper & lower controll arms & some front coilovers as well, but i need to convert my front spindles so i can keep my front wheels, right now it had adapter on it & they need to go!

THe DHP arms will allow you to use either a Mustang II spindle or an S10 spindle instead of the factory one, depending on the ones you get. The s10 rotors will be Chevy 5x4-3/4 bolt pattern, the Mustang II will be whatever rotor you end up getting. ( Mine are Willwood, 5x4-1/2 small Ford) Either one should work. Not sure if DHP is doing a stock replacement tubular, if so,disregard the rest of the post...

Thanks alot for the info, I'm telling ya, this 81 Luv is sweet but, it's giving me fits, the 5 lug conversion & now, Summit is telling me that the SBC swap kit from Hooker won't work on my 81 Luv, said the headers won't work at all, i'am really lost now with this one!

I hope he is selling you different control arms from what he has sold the others here. Series 11 & 12 LUVs take a completely different A arm set up and mount different.

I missed a couple of calls from the guy over the subject... ive just been busy.

Is the picture on a remote site (like photobucket) or is it on your computer? If it's on a remote site, what error are you getting? It will usually tell you what the problem is (like "unable to determine size" or something like that). Chances are, your link does not end with .gif, .jpg, or a valid file type. Or, your photo exceeds the allowed size for remote images.

You can upload an image from your computer when composing your message. Scroll down to the "Browse" button, and add it there. If you tried that, it should also give you informative error messages if it fails. What did it tell you?
