I am replacing my 1969 Camaro factory front power disc brakes with a new complete 4 wheel power disc brake set up. My question is what other cars will my current front disc brakes fit? The only thing that I am reusing from the setup is the steering arms, other then that they are still complete. Thanks for the help.

Will it be a direct bolt with no modifications neseccary? Will the steering arms from any of those cars bolt right up? Also will the power booster and master cylinder swap over? Thanks

the spindles are the same, but the A bodies use a different bolt on steering arm than the F or X bodies.
as for the boosters and masters, i think they are a direct swap, but i'm not sure.

he already said he's getting a complete kit, i think he just wanted to know what his old parts will fit so he can list them on ebay or something.

Any idea what the parts would be worth, the master cylinder and booster are new. The brake parts are in good condition also? Thanks

Probably less than what you have into them, and less than what you think they're worth. I'm selling a similar set-up, and I don't plan on asking much for it. Think of it this way - would you buy a "used" MC for you car when you can get a new one for $30? Or a used caliper when a new one is $30. Neither would I. The only piece of my front system that I'll hate parting with is the metering valve. I just bought it last summer and I think I paid over $100 for it.(New repro) Oh well. I'll probably sell the whole shebang - MC, metering valve, rotors, calipers, bearings, brackets, backing plates for $150.

I agree with BPOS. The parts are all available through the local parts store, but some just want 'factory' original stuff.

I did a brake & suspension upgrade and sold the old rotors, calipers, master cylinder, metering valve, spindles and springs for $250 on Craigslist. People were telling me that I sold it 'cheap'. I just wanted the stuff out of my garage. Depending on where in the country you live, you may be able to get more money. Good luck.
