Default f-body brakes will not fit 92-99'*

i searched and searched and no one had a clear answer if F-body dual piston calipers would fit the 92-99 cars. since i work at a parts store, i ordered in a caliper bracket in from an f-body to see if it would fit. unfortunatly it doesn't. the bolt hole on the f-body bracket are about an inch too narrow to bolt to our spindles. i suppose you could redrill them, but then the strength of the bracket would be compromised.

so hopefully this will end the debate. looks like the howe calipers are the only real option for us 92-99 guys
