It may be the closest thing, Could be a start, But I would think getting a new set of tables for the stock EBCM would be easier.

I agree with the stock EBCM having to be reprogrammed, but if you are looking for parts that bolt right up the C-bodys are the way to go.

you could get everything off of a C-body and then just get the reprogrameed EBCM or even see how much of a difference the C-body one is from the bonne. the only thing is the weight difference. wonder what the difference is

*runs to find the difference*

It also depends how much weight each tire carries..... there'* easily 50 variables that matter. ABS swapping is not really a good idea.

i totally agree

pontiac designed the braking system on the Bonneville to be the most effective for everyday driving. Im sure that there were a few prototypes that Pontiac has somewhere where they played with the idea of 4 discs.

They put the disc/drum on the car for a reason

I have asked about this before, i was told pretty much the same thing. It is going to be rather pricey. REALLY time cosuming, and rather frustrating. You are going to have to convert a bunch of stuff. It will be a while before a new kit comes out for a rear brake conversion. But, if you feel this is something you are capable of, go get 'em slugger.

couldn't i transport all of the brake components from a '97 or so park avenue,the park avenue weighs more,so wouldn't the system be strong enough?
