I have a 68 camaro with non power 4 wheel drum brakes. Wanting to change over to 4 wheel disk. Can somone tell me the cars I can get the front disk from, do I just need the spindle, and the rest I can just buy at the part store, what new parts will I need? What would be a good price to pay for this?
As for the rear, what cars have rear disk that will bolt onto my 10 bolt with c-clip axles? What parts do I need to make the swap, and what would be a good price for these junkyard parts? If I go to a non power set-up will my original master cylinder work fine? Any help is appreciated, these drum brakes need to go! I don't know why I posted this question in this section, can it be moved to the proper one?

DISC BRAKES THAT WILL FIT FIRST GEN CAMAROS
You can use the spindle, caliper, bracket, or rotor from:
Apollo 73-74
Buick Special 69-72
Camaro 69
Chevelle 69-72
Firebird 69
Grand Prix 69
Grand Prix 70-72
Monte Carlo 70-72
Nova 69-74
Olds F85 69-72
Omega 73-74
Sprint gmc 71-72
Tempest 69-72
Ventura II 71-74
They must be disc brake equipped of course. I believe discs became standard in 1970.
Some of the cars listed have the caliper forward of the spindle. You must swap side for side placing the Caliper to the rear of the spindle on the Camaro.And use your Camaro steering arms.
This is a very complete list. I see the GMC Sprint is listed, I think the El Camino of the same year should fit too.

Check on my vintage trans am page I have more info there.
