<< i,
   i know this question has been answered a million times over, but im now in 
 the possition i didnt think i ever would be. becuase my parents (im 17) want 
 to get me a new rear end becuase the caddy i have now has a different bolt 
 patteren as the chevy i have in front. and they want them to be the same, 
 becuase i only have one spare tire to carrry. my question is, what chevy 
 rear end will be almost, if not, a direct bolt in to my stock  leaf springs 
 and shocks, and everything (5 lug)? and, if i  get one of the disk brake 
 kits for the front, can i pull the rotors off the same camaro/firebird and 
 use them with the kit? how bout the calipers? im planning on getting the kit 
 either from pickups northwest, or No Limit. thanks for any help, it is 
 greatly appreciated.

Don't swap rearends just for the spare! You can get a spare (or two, or four) 
wheel(s) from Pete Paulsen with both patterns. I even have a GM space-saver 
spare with both! Ask your parents to give you the money you save and use it 
for something your truck really needs.
Good Luck! Let me know if you need info on Pete Paulsen.
