Thumbs up 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

Well in my search for front adapter brackets I stumbled on BRP. They have the brackets for the drum spindles and you dont have to machine the spindle. They also have a complete kit, which is what I bought.
It comes with the brackets, hubs machined for the rotors and the longer studs an inner and outer bearings and rear seal already installed, and all bolts required. Plus they have adapter brackets for the rear discs to go onto 10 and 12 bolt rearends nice kit and it is working well so far just mocking up the fronts. If you dont want to run around for bolts bearings studs and having spindles and hubs machined this IS the way to go. Price I thought was really reasonable. If you call ask for Phil.

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

What all was included with the kit you bought? Used parts, new parts with it? How much was it?

Thanks
Joe

"It comes with the adapter brackets, hubs machined for the rotors and the longer studs an inner and outer bearings and rear seal already installed, and all bolts required."
The hubs are used (all cleaned up and painted) with new studs, bearings and machined down for the calipers. New mounting bolts for adapter bracket and baskets. If you are like me and dont have alot of time to run around for small parts, I recommend it.
I bought the calipers and baskets on ebay (used).

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

how much do you have invested in the entire package? You have front and rear correct? PM me if you don't want to post a price in the forums.

Thanks

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

I was planning on going the C4 route for my front brakes, but due to parts not being available have switched focus to the LS1 route. Could someone please confirm using the LS1 calipers on 12" rotors will fit 16" wheels?

I went to the http://www.brphotrods.com/ website and the brackets look just like the C4 bracket at this site, http://www.pozziracing.com/12_corvet...es_on_fgen.htm. Does anyone know if there is a difference?

67LSRS - Were you happy with the kit? Any issues? What size wheels are you using? Thank you very much.

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

Yes Iam happy with the kit and did not have any issues. My wheels are 17" and unfortunately I have not worked on the car for a bit. Life keeps getting in the way. Hopefully now that the weather is breaking I will get back out there. I am stuck on what to run for brake lines have to do some research here, If anyone has some ideas I would appreciate them.

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

Are you talking hard lines or flex lines? Hard lines are easy enough to bend up yourself. For flex lines, I bought them from www.kore3.com Beautiful clear plastic covered braided stainless lines and for about the same price as parts house factory style lines.

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

Actually both, the flex and hardlines. Do you have part numbers for the flex and I was told that the LS1 lines were metric and had a special flare? Is that a fact? As I stated before I have not researched it nearly enough as I should have, so kinda running blind here. Thanks for the response.

Re: 67-69 Camaro LS1 brake conversion

Just call kore's toll free number and talk to Tobin - he'll tell you what you need. As for the hard lines - just use early Camaro disc brake stuff on the front- 3/16" inverted flare with US threads - and then order flex lines to match up. The rear axle lines will probably have to custom made by you, but still 3/16" inverted flare US thread. The caliper end of the flex line is a banjo bolt and crush washer set-up. Pretty sure the banjo bolts are metric - Tobin will know for sure.
