possible brake upgrade for bonnevilles 92-99 ?
As the title explains I have a therory that the front brakes on a bonneville can be upgraded like the
GTP/Regals to 12" rotors and 2 piston calipers from a F-body car
Ok first some background and the questions I need to ask .
1. The 92-99 bonneville front rotors are 10.5 inchs in diameter correct ?
2. The knuckle that holds the caliper and wheel hub on the 92-99 bonneville has the caliper bracket cast on to it ?
3. The lower control arm is stamped steel ?
If you answered yes to all these 3 questions.
Then the 95-96 riviera shares similar suspension/brake parts with the bonneville, now that question is if the part numbers match.
( I am still trying to figure out how to get the part #* for a comparison)
Ok if we have gotten this far please read this Link I got from the RegalGS.org forums.
As you can see he (rivman2) was able to find out that the rivieras suspension became very similar to the W-Body systems in 97 with 12" rotors.
This proves that I can upgrade my brakes to 2 piston f-body calipers. I am going by pure memory but I think that the bonnevilles brake calipers and
steering knuckels are also the same as the rivs in 95-96. Thus making it possible for you to upgrade as well.
I know that foghorn was doing this reserch but he never completed it .
Anyway let me know what you guys think?
