Question 67 Camaro steering & brakes

I have a 67 Camaro w/non power drum brakes & NO power steering. I have a 74 Camaro parts car that has power disc brakes & power steering. Can somebody tell me if I can swap the parts out of the 74, and put them in the 67? Thanks for your input!

If you can find any front steer GM small body (camaro, F-85, LeMans, Chevelle, Buick whatever) with disc brakes or even just the spindle and control arm attachments from the disc brake car, you can make the interchange. You won't find it under the part numbers because the part numbers are not consistent but it does work. You can buy new or rebuild calipers, discs and bearings. Incidentally, I am running this as a fully manual brake and the pedal pressure is not excessive.

I re-built my '67 camaro clip to disc brakes this way by scouring junk yards and got the job done for $100. They will be 1 1/2" wider than the drums when you are done.

I've had people tell me that you could also use front steer spindles, just switch sides. I questioned them about the calipers being upside down and on the wrong side (f vs r) he said that you could bleed them on an old rotor, then install them, they would work fine. That kind of crap makes me nervous. BTW, I think the front steer changeover came in the 73 model year.

Hers what I done 69 Camaro rear steer clip in a 46 chevy Truck. had the spindles and all the hardware of a nova to do the change over and lost one of the spindles. After going to the junk yard I found that 73 Monte Carlo spindles will work they are front steer but the sterring arms bolt on so all you have to do is reverse them. Keeps the calipers in the right place with no prblems. Have been running tis set up for 4 years. Hope this helps. The one thing to look for is spindles with bolt on steering arms a lot of them are made with the spindles.
