Monte Carlo rear disc brakes question... ?

Fellow Rodders...

Monte Carlo Question..

At what year did they start making disc brake rearends with calipers that have the emergency brake levers on them for Monte Carlo's ?

80's? say 84-86?


I am looking for a GM set that matches my front's, but HAS the e-brake cable levers and can be used out back,

These NEW calipers I now have are "supposedly" from a 74' Monte Carlo (but cant be as 74' has 8-1/2" wings, these are like 7", But thats Auto Zone for ya), I am thinking they are more 86'ish smaller units..

Good thing because these fit BETTER than the larger 74'-75' ones!, So thats not a problem, The problem is what HAS the e-brake arms, Even IF it's not a Monte Carlo of course..

Dont say 87-88-ish Iroc, They want $80 core charge EACH... DOH !

IF It was $10 core charge I can handle eating that.., Not gonna eat $160 !

Any HELP is greatly appreciated..

I have managed to adapt disc brakes to a 66'-67 Chevy Van front end AND a 10-bolt posi 86' Monte Carlo rearend, Just need 2 more calipers ! (with e-brakes hahaha)

You will probably be better off using an afternarket brake package. I know that Stainless Steel offers a rear conversion kit using the Lincoln caliper that has the arm for a mechanincal cable pull E-brake.
