real sorry about leaving you all hanging on this thread, I got out of the g-body game for a while, but I should be back in with flying colors here in just a few weeks.

Yes, the speedway brackets are the same and will work...

PN# 91031928

Seems like you all did fine without me.

Ok, another update...

I am waiting to hear back from Speedway if they will sell their brackets, PN# 91031928-1, by themselves.

Also, on their kit, with these brackets, they specifically say in their instructions that the rotors are from a "'93 to '97 Camaro". http://static.speedwaymotors.com/pdf/910-31923.pdf

*For those of you concerned about the parking brake...
I myself am probably going to go this route and plumb one of these in and build a bracket to actuate this with the stock parking brake lever and cable.
http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Park-Lok-Hydraulic-Brake,1970.html

Here's an updated list of the parts that should all work together and make for a nice simple setup. I will keep you updated with the bracket prices.

Rotors (2) - '95 Chevy Camaro Rear Brake Rotors - AZ - $28 - 2yr War.
Calipers (2) - G-body fronts, metric - AZ - $21 w/o core, $10 w/ core - Lifetime War.
Hardware (2) - G-body front, metric - AZ - $10
Pads - G-body front, metric - AZ - $22 - Lifetime War.
Caliper Brackets (2) - TBD
Proportioning Valve - Summit Racing - $45
Hoses - If you have the ends identified, any hydraulic line shop in the industial part of town can make you some for cheap on the spot - <$35
Park-Lok Hydraulic Parking Break - Speedway Motors - $30

All bolt on parts...
Grand Total...
<$300

How about this kit & use the eldorado 78-85 rear caliplers that allow you to still have a e brake . When using the eldy calipers , make sure to always apply the ebrake or they will sieze . http://www.daymotorsports.com/product/1 ... -BRAKE-KIT 209.00

Is it even worth it for that skimpy metric caliper?
What about shock relocation?
Lowered applications?

I wouldn't think lowered applications would have any issues, but I haven't looked into it enough of course. It would likely be a nice upgrade from the drums, but for any major stopping power I do think those calipers and rotors would probably fall short as well.

I think a 60 to 40 or a 55 to 45 bias on the prop valve would be ideal and better than drums..........plus later the wildwood dm caliper can be performed.........

I'm still figuring out why anyone would want bigger rotors on the back than on the front, or why they'd bother on a 7.5" rear that's probably going to break. Yeah, I know, EVERYBODY'S been running 8's on a 7.5" for YEARS... :lol:
