Default front brake upgrades

While i was browsing through the GP forums, I found this link about using F-body front calipers on 12" rotors. The only question that I can't seem to anwer is whether or not our knuckles are the same as w-body knuckles.... any experts here?

http://www.clubgp.com/newforum/tm.asp?m=973047

I would really like to do this upgrade and help fill the hole my rims created... i'm also sick of all the brake dust on my rims... i have to clean them twice a week


TIA

Lee

doing a little of my own research here, gmpartsdirect lists the following

bonneville front rotor PN = 18060234
grand prix front rotor PN = 18060233

if those rotors are the same, then the intrigues will fit us and the f-body calipers will fit us and they might fit inside stock 16" rims

one of my gp buddies said the difference is night and day

so how different are they really.... i think we need Alan'* help on this one

/me twiddles his thumbs
