    This is my ptt

    There's my attempt at a pro touring truck
    5.3z06 cam procharger
    4/6 drop poly bushings

    I want a big brake kit but can't find any I can afford... ( want a brembo set up like what I have on the camaro ) at least some rear disk

    Nice, a well built 60e will last a long time.
    I had a built one in my 2dr 2wd Tahoe with Yank billet stall for 5 years with zero issues.

    As for brakes, a decent set of rotors and quality pads with some SS lines should be sufficient enough for now until the larger sets are in reach.
    What brakes are you runnin on your Camaro? Which ones did you have in mind for the truck?

    Nice set up. Not to get off topic but, lets see that Camaro.

    Flynbye kits look nice. I'm almost positive I've seen Vette brakes retro fitted to OBS'.
    Let me go look and see if I can dig it up.

    If there is one thing that pro-touring.com has taught me is that the breaks you think you need and what you actually need are far different, not to mention less expensive. Read like crazy and buy what works. Don't trust the guy who's car/truck is parked on the grass at a car show. Go to a track and see who is pounding on what.

    What rims are those? And could you list tire sizes? I want to upgrade rims on my '95 and really like what you did with yours. I may have to follow suit, only in white...

    Don't know if this helps but I used impala ss rear disc on my 90obs. Had to drill the holes out a little bigger and made my own brackets. I bought all new calipers and rotors for not alot of money. Not running an e-brake though.
