Default Brake upgrade Q

yeahh owned for not reading down a couple topics!! damn
mods erase plz?

im new to the bonneville world, but i saw these or at least mine dont have the 12" front rotors. such a big car needs the braking power.
i was wondering if anyone has been able to use aurora or impala front knuckls(aluminum) and swap over bracket and then use F body calipers that are dual pistion? im wondering if the strut holes line up. it should be able to work otherwise?

any ideas?

also, would the aluminum impala subframe work on these?? ill have to messure. that would be nice and maybe save some weight?

also just wondering is there a timeslip database on here??

i dont think the w body set-ups will work, but then again, ive never tried it. so who knows.

i would think the caddys to be a more likely donor. was it the sevilles that were C bodies in those years?

either way, id be very interested to know, so be sure to update if you try some junk yard engineering.
