brake conversion on a 68 Camaro

I have a 68 Camaro, and would like to convert the front drums to rotors. What I need to know is, what kind of cars can I use the front spindles, calipers, rotors, ect off of. Do I need to get a new master cylinder, with a boster, or will my old master still work.

In fact, we've just compiled a huge disc brake conversion resource guide. We have 86 discussions, 44 articles, and 25 parts suppliers listed, all on the subject of disc brake conversions. You can check it out here.

You need the disc brakes from a 69 Camaro, 69-72 Chevelle, 70-72 Monte Carlo, 69-74 Nova, or similar GM cars of the same years. The main thing you need is the caliper bracket and dust shield, you can get rotors and calipers at the auto supply. Calipers are good for exchange. ..........joe

I did a front brake conversion on my 69 Camaro years ago. I used the spindles off a 72 Olds Cutlass. I bought newrotors and turned in the ones I took off the Cutlass. I bought rebuilt calipers. It was avery easy conversion. Be sure you get the master cylinder, brake booster, and proportioning valve. You just might get some pieces that work, or you may have to buy new or reconditioned pieces, but you will have cores to exchange saving some $.
