Camaro Caliper Brackets

I've contacted glock35ipsc and Bob says he doesn't plan to make more of these at this time. So I've done my CAD work and made a couple slight changes as you can see in the pics. They still function the same, I just didn't want to copy Bob's nice design exactly. The brackets are laser cut from 1/4" steel with the 1/4" spacers stitch welded onto the base bracket.

The price on these as seen in the last pic, without the hardware, is $112.00 shipped via USPS Priority Mail which is 2 to 3 days delivery. I will supply a list of the hardware needed to install these onto your differential. For payment I accept PayPal and money orders. If you would like a set, post in this thread and either make a PayPal payment to captainfab454@ hotmail dot com, or send me your email and I can send you a PayPal invoice. If you wish to send a MO contact me for a snail mail address.

Updated pricing to include hardware and increased shipping cost is $133.60
The Satin Black powder coating is an additional $28.00

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

BTW that stack of washers on the caliper bolts is because I didn't have the right length 12mm bolts and I was in a hurry to take a pic.

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

Do you make anything like this to install rear disc on a 67-69 camaro? Or would this bracket work on that rear too? Thanks

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

This set of brackets will only work with the truck 10 and 12 bolt differentials. The main difference is the bolt pattern on the axle tube flange. Also the Impala rotor is about .100" larger in diameter than the Camaro rotor. I replied to your post in my other thread.

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

Yes I will. The total to you will be $127.00 USD shipped USPS as I normally do. That should be less $$ at the border for you than UPS or FedEx.

Anyone figured up how much a complete kit would cost?

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

These brackets utilize the '94-'96 Impala/Caprice rotors and the '93-'97 F-body calipers which have a built in e-brake.

The total cost will partly depend on if you can source your caliper cores for less than the core charge when purchasing rebuilt calipers. Tha calipers are your biggest single expense with this conversion. The best price I have found is from CSK/Oreilly's for the loaded calipers they are $127.00 pus a core charge of $31.50

Just a question on these. Will it fit inside a 15in wheel with no problems?

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

I don't know for certain, but I would think 15's would fit. The rotors are less than 12 inch. If someone that has installed a set doesn't chime in here, I'll bolt up a wheel on my mockup. Which wheels do you have, stock or aftermarket?

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

Is it about the same price to do this disc conversion as replace everything on a drum system?

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

I don't know just what the average total cost is for this rear disc brake conversion, but I'm sure it is more money than replacing everything in the rear drum brake system.

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

OK I test fit a 15 x 8, 5x5 pickup rally and it clears the Camaro caliper by a good 1/4". I really don't see any problems with 15" wheels on this rear disc conversion as long as the wheels are compatable with OEM disc brake applications.

Re: Camaro Caliper Brackets

At $73.00 a drum (granted its for 4x4) It shouldn't cost much more.
