Wilwood Launches Bel Air Spindles

Source: Wilwood Engineering announcement

CAMARILLO, Calif. – Wilwood Engineering introduced its latest ProSpindle engineered to give 1955-57 Chevrolet Bel Air, and related cars, a 2-inch lower ride height and simplify performance brake installation.

These precision-machined steel ProSpindles provide reinforced brake caliper mounts and an improved stance, while being lighter and stronger than original factory parts.

The Chevrolet Bel Air ProSpindles mount to original-equipment (OE) ball joints in stock or aftermarket control arms and reuse factory steering arms with no change to steering or suspension geometry.

Wilwood’s ProSpindles, and the five new brake kits, are engineered to work as a system. All the available kit options include performance-proven, forged aluminum, multi-piston calipers with high-temperature seals, stainless pistons, and fade-resistant pads.

Premium-grade iron alloy rotors range from 11.50 inches to 14.00 inches in diameter, and offer the option of plain, slotted, or drilled and slotted faces
