    Looking to swap the rear disk brakes out of a 93-97 camaro to a 75 GM 10 bolt. Has anyone done this type of swap? Any advise would be much appreciated... I am struggling with the $500 price tag for a "kit". Thanks!!!

    I haven't used the 93-97 Camaro parts....but have put late 70's Camaro/Firebird disks on a drum 10 bolt rear. The biggest issue was the fact that the axle flanges were too big to fit inside the rotors. The axles had to be turned down on a lathe to make them a little smaller in overall diameter, then the rotors fit over them.

    Just as John said. You will have to have the flanges turned and the rest is a bolt on. I did this on my 39 International. Keith

    An issue not addressed here are the the calipers mentioned are center pull e-brake. You are much better off with 98-02 units.

    Do these use the same backing plates? The E Brake set up on mine look funky because the calipers on one side point forward and the othe side points backwards. There is no clean way to run the cables for the E brake.
