dman0712 I found a kit for $560 shipped and it includes e brake and proportioning valve. The only thing it says is Axle flanges may need to be modified to less than 6" outside diameter for proper rotor fit. Is this a big deal and how do i go about this?

dman0712 i found a couple kits on ebay. I have found though that i can buy the parts individually alot cheaper. i need to find the backing plates and proportioning valve still though. any ideas? what backing plates off other cars will work?

They should sell kits for just her rear most of these company's do . And as far as your booster i don't see why it and your M/C wouldn't work, it should be just fine and you should already have a dual M/C on the car already also. But they might have a better up-grade for those parts also.JMO

eloc431962 I don't know if you can do it for $400 well i guess it depends on how good a set you want they are out there i am sure . Might have to do some shopping around. But i think it's going to be tough to get a decent set at that price. JMO
But you never know. did you google it yet. I went with SSBC on the front of m camaro and they have worked really good for me. .

I have a 79 trans am and i swapped the stock 10 bolt rear end for 1st gen camaro 12 bolt. I want to put disk brakes in the rear and am wondering where is the best place to get a brake kit for this car? I will need backing plates and all. I only want to spend around $400. HELP!
