Default CPP C5 Spindle - Camaro / Nova

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with CPP's cast iron C5 spindles?



Quote:
Affordable & attractive cast spindle.

Stock height.

Raised upper ball joint mount tall spindle to yield a better camber change during suspension movement (CP30013).

Utilize factory or CPP replacement steering arms (CP30013).

Work with factory control arms, CPP Totally Tubularô and other after market arms.

The spindle alone works with factory 1997-2004 C5 corvette hub bearing pack, rotors and calipers.

Works with Baer, Wilwood and other aftermarket brakes designed to fit C5 spindles.

I just bought a set for a project car to try them out on. Will be a while before I get to actually drive the car though. Should have them assembled in a month or so when I assemble the subframe.

For those on a budget they look very tempting if the quality/safety is there.

Are you using their C5 hub kit also?

Thanks for the input.

There was a lively exchange between Tyler and the designer of the CPP spindle over on the other PT site if I remember right...

Ya, budget, i know. MCB was having a garage sale on open box stuff. The price was right, I already have C5 brakes & front hubs (used low mile off C5). I figured I'd try this stuff out. The car wont ever be used on an open track. I'll eventually sell it, but will drive it a while first. Should be fine for street use & autocross. I enjoy building first gens, trying different things with them (other than they all will have LSx engines) and learning a little in the process.

I dont know the quality of the material the cpp spindles are made from,but if youve seen a 71-72 c10 disc spindle its cast iron and there a few guys tracking on that type of spindle,i think mike hickman's 68 is using cast spindles maybe he can chime in if hes on the forum,he is an engineer.
