Close. When you get the F-body brakes be sure to get the brackets and all the bolts. To mount the bracket to the spindle you either need to tap the F-body bracket to use the w-body bolts (larger than f-bodies) or you can use the F-body bolts. If you use the F-body bolts you need to cut/grind a 1/2 inch off the bolt to avoid hitting the rotor. To account for the gap in the spindle hole and the smaller f-body bolt diameter you need to order a spacer. Mcmaster Carr part # 6679K16. Mounting the new setup took less than an hour.
If you look around you can find the F-body calipers from a JY for cheap money. Look for 1998-2002 Camaro or Firebird.
Well worth it. The improved stopping power is AMAZING!!!!

Good deal. This will prevent people from voting on it 10 years from now and it will automatically dredge it up from the bottomless pits of the forum.
