The WS6 disc brakes were not available on the Camaro. They were Trans Am only and were only used on the '79 to '81 second gen cars. They had cast iron calipers and were not considered to be very good. There are much better options out there. 4th gen F body disc brakes are much better and will adapt to the Monte Carlo rear end. The F body second gen rear end wil not work in the Monte Carlo unles you use ladder bars or after market 4 link. It was comon for the '79 to '81 Trans Am to have 2.56 gears, which would make the differential a 2 series and only good for 2.56 and 2.41 gears.
