Warren/Tommy, Will the the 92 Camaro calipers and rotors work with this combo. Or YOU must use 1981 Camaro. Tommy what part numbers are your rotors/calipers from?

You must use 1LE rotors if you want to retain the bolt pattern. 92 Camaro calipers won't fit because they use a smaller brake pad-D154 vs. D52. You can use 70-81 Camaro calipers (1/16" wider than the Caprice w/12" brakes)for the job, too. I opted to retain the 5 on 5 bolt pattern so I used regular Caprice calipers. I think the part numbers Warren used is for A-1 Cardone reman. stuff. The OEM calipers for the 1LE swap are PBR dual piston aluminum and can be adapted fairly easy to our G-bodies but the brackets for the spindle are dis-continued now. You can buy the complete loaded kit through Autozone (P4747 I think) but what good is it without the right brackets? -Jabin

Lemme reprint this from the previous page.:

Here ya go:

Spindles and calipers are from 78-90 full size Caprice, Caddy, Delta 88, and Pontiac. Typically wagon, police or with HD towing package.

Brake calipers, (1)#18-4021, (1)#18-4020

Brake flex hoses, #BH36848

Brake caliper hose bolts, #483-205

Brake pads, # D52

Brake rotors, 1LE, #5994

Wheel bearings, 1LE inner, #BR6

Wheel bearings, 1LE outer, #BR3

Bearing seals, 1LE, #19753

Hub grease caps, 1LE, #13977



If you're tearing down the steering too, here's the part #s:

Tie rod, inner, 78 Malibu, #ES2034L

Tie rod, outer, 78 Malibu, #ES2033R

Centerlink, 78 Malibu, #DS909

Idler arm, 78 Malibu, #FA1013

Ball joint, lower, 78 Malibu, #FA3000

The tubular upper A-arms required should have ball joints already installed.

Dunno just how long Robert Adams has been doing his G-parts business, but he's a frequent player on Ray Buck's Elky reflector. He's a good guy and very knowledgeable. I haven't bought much from him but what I have, arrived soon enough with no problems. He's up-front and will tell you exactly what his stock and shipping times are.

Big front brakes has always been on my list of upgrades for the Malibu and the Monte SS. The thing that gets me is that in a panic stop, with the stock setup, I can lock the front brakes with the Malibu.

The question is, does changing to the larger ID manual brake S-10 rear wheel cylinders, improve the front/rear bias to eliminate this lock-up situation? The Monte already has the S10 wheel cylinders. I guess I should try panic stopping with that to answer my own question.

Considering the expense of upgrading to tubular a arms, why not upgrade to an aftermarket kit? Better calipers, weight reduction etc... Just seems to make more sense in my mind to get a little more bang for your buck.

so the spindles need to be from a 78-90 full size with caprice or towing package to have 12 inch brakes? if i had just spindles how can i tell there for 12 inch brakes and not the regular ones they came with ? also is there anyway to tell it has 12inch brakes other than measure the rotors

All you need are spindles from those years of a Caprice. Period. Doesn't have to be a wagon.

The 9C1 spindles are not unique?
