Can use 69-74 nova or 69 camaro, STAY away from the 68 brakes,they are 4 piston brakes,unless you have a bunch of money you want to dump into the calipers.plus you would need the 2 piece rotors.As far as using Chevelle brakes,they will work,BUT Don't reverse them,[you will get a bumb steer]remove your old steering arms from your NOVA drum brakes and put them on your disc brake spindles.Just a matter of 2 bolts,Very easy change over,Can use Omega and Apollo disc brakes,What I remember about 70 camaro disc brakes is that they went to the larger spindle assy,Hope that this helps.GOOD LUCK

I did this on my 71. Pulled parts off a 72. After I got the spindles rotors calipers brake lines and master cyl on, I found the rear end brakes locking up, went back and bought the rear end brake lines and multileaf springs. Then I found the driveline was shorter, bought the driveline. Lot of trouble but it worked great!!!
