Hey I’m new here, looking for front rotors on my Catalina. It came factory with disk front and will eventually need rotors for it and can’t find any anywhere. Down the road I want to upgrade the suspension but can’t find anything there either. Ultimately I want it to be a fun boat to cruise in with some power I can take down the strip occasionally

Have you looked at RockAuto.com? I see rotors from AC Delco and Raybestos listed. Are the front brakes of a Safari wagon that much different that a four door? I'd ask RockAuto.

If that doesn't work out......

Do you want the bad news or the somewhat good news first?

The bad news is the '69-70 Pontiac B-cars are rather unique onto themselves and the after market doesn't really embrace them much anymore (a lack of demand means no one has very many parts).

The somewhat good news is there is a kit that allows you to convert your front disc brakes over to a much more  parts accessible stock '71-76 Bonneville front disc caliper, pads, and rotor. However, this conversion will require you to run a 15" wheel. The conversion kit comes from a company called Scarebird Classic Brakes. It's $235 by itself. You still have to supply the 71-76 caliper, rotors, pads, and flex line. It's more expensive than a simple set of rotors and pads.

So check out RockAuto first....

 

What specifically do you want to do the suspension? A stock rebuild? Lower it? Donk/lift it?
