Ben,
when done CORRECTLY redrilled rotors
will be as safe then 4 lugs rotors
when using
redrilled rotors be sure to check how it was done,the best
way (my peference)
is ta have the rotor redrilled
and have srew in studs installed
that way you
have2 mean of retaining the stud,the shoulder and the
threads

but the best way to put 5 lugs on a monza is to
upgrade to s-10 or g body rotors
that way you`ll have
bigger brakes too

p.s.
still looking for the
bal joints Robert used

That also depends on what you are putting them
on. If you have a Vega with solid, un-vented rotors,
they aren't safe on much of anything if you've added
any performance at all to your car. If they are the
Monza-style vented rotors, you are in much better
shape.

front rotors.
