GM Metric Brakes- What Year, Makes & Models Were they Used on ??

Title say's it all. I believe the years used were 1978-1988 but please correct me if I'm wrong.

I always associated "metric" with G-body. So all the Regal, Monte Carlo, ect. of the era. I think you got the years right.

What is it you are trying to do?

Also in 83 GM went to calipers that would retract when the brakes were let off. To keep peddle travel down they also started using step-bore (aka quick take-up) master cylinders that were aluminum.
