Default F-Body brakes

I was wondering if anyone had done the research regarding F-Body brakes. I noticed while I was going through a parts magazine that they use the same rotor the 92-99 bonnevilles used.

If so, would it be possible that the brake upgrades available for the F-body might work on the bonnie?

What year F-body?
I know the 3rd gen(82-92) will not work. I'm not sure about the 4th gens.

A lot of GP'* covert to F-body brakes sucessfully, so I'm sure it could be done on the Bonnies as well.

I don't think the rotors are the same. Bolt pattern on a 4th gen F body is 5x120.6mm vs the Bonneville'* 5x115mm. I put a spare front rotor from the '94 Camaro up against a rim from the Bonneville...close, but not close enough. Unless you want to redrill the rotor to fit.
