c5 corvette vs. ls1 rear brake calipers
are the rear calipers on the c5 and ls1 interchangeable? will i need the ls1 abutments in order to mount the c5 calipers on my camaro?

this is my delima.. i am puting disc brakes on my 68 bird. i have c5 corvette discs up front and want discs on the rear also.

i coped a great pair of rear c5 calipers for under 80 bucks complete. i can get a pair of rear brakets to mount my c5 on the 10 bolt rear end, but they dont allow for the parking brakes.

after i bought them i found out that 95 ls1 model rear brakes was a direct bolt on with the parking brakes.

after some research i found out that the c5 calipers were an upgrade swap on the ls1 but i dont know if you use the ls1 abutments or the c5 abutments in order for the swap to work.

any help would be great....

My guess would be that you would need the C5 abutments with the C5 calipers.
