Rear disc conversion

Who has the best deal on rear disc brake conversion kit for the GM 10 bolt?

I do not want the E brake stuff and plan on keeping the C-clip axles.

I seen a couple kits on Ebay that look like nice kits, but im skeptical about such deals.

thanks
eww

You should be able to use late Camaro/Trans Am rear discs.

You can pick up rear caliper mounting brackets off of ebay for around $70-$100 and buy the rest of the parts a local parts store. The guys selling the brackets can let you know exactly what components to piece together. They typically use front calipers/pads off of early 80s GM cars and rear rotors off of like an early 80s Trans Am.

No, that is just for one with e-brake, you can use any early model GM, I believe. Mine had 69 camaro front calipers on the rear, but I wanted ebrake, so did the Seville....
