Have never done that but it can't be very difficult. My first guess is that a Monte Carlo of the same year would be a direct swap. They have the same chassis as the 'Camino. I am quite sure the power steering stuff would go right in - Chevy made one-size fits all - and can't imagine why the brakes would not do the same. My advice - take a tape measure to Pick-A-Part and see!

If you switch from drum to disc, you might need a proportioning valve if you dont already have one.
