This the basic information that I used when I put disc brakes on mine.:)
I used ECI front brackets, Chevelle rotors, Nova Calipers. For the rear I used Cad. ElDorado rear calipers, prop. valve & brackets, Trans AM rear rotors. Used a C3 Vette master cylinder & Hydro Boost from a Astro van.:D :D
Thanks for the information........hopefully there are a few "gearheads" out there that can use your info.:cool:
It's more fun to "engineer" :eek: your own set-up than spend the BIG bucks for a kit.:rolleyes:

Thank you! No truer words were ever spoken. 75% of the fun of these cars is building them. In my not so humble opinion.
