That idea has been kicking around for awhile there.
As Jsams indicated, the Corvette has had them for awhile. The original vette
platform that had them (C4?) and the sealed wheel bearing hubs is about the
time period they started contemplating aluminum spindles.
We didn't intend on "pins" on the hand-fabbed 67-69 Camaro aluminum spindles
we tried in the mid-90's, they used the vette sealed hubs- looks to me from
the photo that the new GW aluminum spindles will have steel pins no matter the
designed application. (The 1st gen Camaro Negative Roll system, as it turned
out, didn't require the taller hand-fabbed aluminum spindles, so the idea was
shelved just prior to my departure from there)
