1967 SS 396 Suspension and Brake

I have a 1967 big block Camaro and it has manual drum brakes all four corners and stock suspension including single leaf rear, it has a 12 posi rearend..I want to upgrade to a multileaf and install four wheel power disk brakes. What is a nice set up that someone has done this...not looking for top of the line I would like to be around $3500 if possible.
Thank you

Look at Right Stuff for brake conversion and any of the Camaro parts vendors on springs

I would go with Hotchkiss springs but others that cost less work fine. You will need a mono to multi adapter kit like the one from DSE

Ricks has a 20% off sale today until 300 pm. If you want to keep that "original" look go with the show car quality leaf springs. They cost around 425.00 I think. I have these on my BB car. I really like them. There are of course import versions that go for much less.

Wow, price has jumped!

I dont know what you have for rims, but be careful with aftermarket brake kits. Many of them require larger diameter wheels.

Ricks is $475 after discount and $60 shipping.

Heartbeat City is $460.

I just bought and installed the show quality correct 4 Leafs on my Z28
