Will this kit work with my stock 1957 Chevy Truck 6-Lug Spindles? I have a 1957 Chevy truck (3100) with the stock spindles. It is a 6-lug truck that I want to keep 6-lugs. Will this bracket set work for that purpose? Seems most folks will only sell you the complete upgrade kit. I just need the brackets. Your extended information seemed to contradict the description of the part. Thanks Jim

We apologize for any confusion but basic disc brake kit 91631916 will bolt to the 49-54 Chevy passenger car spindles and also the ½ ton pickup spindles. It comes with a bearing and seal adapter for the original spindles to weld on the spindle and instructions for machine work on the spindles if wanting to use the rest of our components. Spacing for the caliper is 7 1/16” for the 69-77 midsize GM calipers. This bracket is designed to be used with a 11in rotor.

We apologize but Speedway does not offer a disc brake bracket set for the 49/54 Chevy spindle that will accept the early 10 ½” rotor. If you used these the brake pads would not contact the rotor surface the preferred amount. We do offer a bracket set for the 9 ¼” rotor with GM calipers under kit number 91631950.

These kits are for use on modified 49-54 Chevy car or pickup spindles which is a service offered by Speedway. On the car spindles the kit will not work on OEM 49-54 Chevy cars as there will be no place to bolt the factory steering arms. If you have OEM car spindles and are using them on a tube axle hot rod style front end then the spindles can be modified and the kit will work. A kit is NOT available for conversion to disc brakes on the factory 49-54 Chevy cars. Another option not requiring pickup spindle modification on the Chevy trucks is number 91031916 only available in the 50on 4 ¾ bolt pattern.

Will this item work on Total Performance Spindles? It looks like the same bracket that is in the complete front brake kit.
