    I'm guessing I have the same kit, bought in 1997. (how many did he have?) I should not post as I cannot remember for sure. I am positive the calipers are 78 Impala. I thought the rotors were also 78 Impala.

I have the Steeltech 12" conversion on my 53 coupe that I race, and I've worn out the rotors. Through NAPA I located a set of 1970-72 Chrysler Newport rotors (rare and pricey) that Steeltech says they use (from their website). They will mount on the spindle, but the hub is too long so the nut can't be tightened enough. I leave for a race in less than 2 weeks so I got to get the rotors quickly.

    Yes, I've sent emails and left messages at Steeltech, and I will chase them, but in case they don't get back to me quickly, I thought I'd see if anyone knows the answer to this.

    Thanks,

    When I purchased my 83, the previous owner had added a Steeltech setup. He put the Avanti rotors in the boxes he got with the kit.

    Here is a shot of the rotor box.



    I can email you the same shot as it is much more clear than the photobucket shot.

    Good luck
