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....
