    Which Years LS1 Rear Brakes Fit a First Gen Camaro

    I've seen the articles on 93-97 rear disks, but how about 98 and up? Can these fit as well?

    Forgot to add this is for a third gen but should apply to your first gen. Also you will need to run two right side caliper brackets unless you have moved the shocks I believe. Ebrake setup is different as well. Hopefully someone else will chime in and finish filling in the blanks.

    you can use 98 or newer but then you still have the drum style e-brake, I didnt really like that set up so I went with 97 and older the set I used came with the e-brake cables and I got them to work with a little braket fabbing on a 68 camaro

    OK, thanks, guys.

    I will probably go with whatever I happen to find first, unless there is any issues with the newer style and the mini drum e-brake.

    My wife and I spent yesterday morning at the Junk Yard pulling out an 8.5 10 bolt housing from a 73 Nova. I couldn't find a 12 bolt and I'm going the low buck route until we have a bigger garage and I can fab the mounts for something more trick, like an IRS.

    It's nice to have a wife that will get her hands dirty turn the wrenches with ya!

    Here is that web page sorry it took so long It wouldnt ever come up in the search now I know why there site was down. The kit I bought was the 150$ 97 and older set. I did buy new rotors for it at auto zone just so they were new looking.

    I have installed LS1 (LS1 is 98-up F-Body) Rear discs on a 69 camaro. The fab work was mostly simple, to modify the driver's side backing plate/caliper mount to put the driver's side caliper forward of the rear axle.
