I looked at a number of options for putting C4 or C5 Vette or 4th Gen Camaro brakes on mine. The biggest issue I found is you have 16" or larger wheels for clearance. You need to make a clearance gauge and check the side clearance to the rim too. SSBC has some fitment templates, on their web site. You have to use the one from the SSBC kit that closest matches what you are trying to do.

Go to Pozzi Racing and scroll down to the brakes section or cheap big brakes. This is for 1st Gen Camero's which are exactly the same as our 3rd Gen Nova's. He has a ton of information on several types of conversions.

Here is another link to look at.

They have everything from complete kits to mounting brackets. They're very helpful if you have any problems.

13.5" C5 fronts with an 18" wheel.


You will have to run 16" or bigger wheels for any of the late model Camaro/Corvette brakes to work.
