67 Camaro Front Disc Brakes

Has anyone purchased power front disc brake conversion kit? I am considering buying one from Ricks First Generation Camaro, but am wondering whether my steering arm will fit the spindles included in kit. I have come across a similar kit for Chevy II and steering arms off that car did not fit new spindles.

Howdy. Ricks first gen is a great place. My 67 has 69 disc brakes. They do bolt up. That might be a alternative solution.

'67-'69 Camaro/Firebird and '68-'74 Nova (& clones) all use the same steering arms, although there are length differences depending on whether it came with power steering or not, or whether it had hi-perf steering or not. Disc or drum brakes don't matter, the arms bolt up the same. You can use your arms, or theirs, just be sure they're not A-body arms, which will bolt up, but will screw up your steering geometry.

Be sure left and right arms are the same length, or you'll screw up the geometry again. Shorter arms will quicken the steering, and make it a little harder to turn.
