Disc brake conversion to a 8.2 10 bolt rear end, installed in a 72 Chevy Vega. This conversion uses: STEELTECH SOLUTIONS caliper brackets, (purchased on eBay) 3rd generation Camaro rotors - AIMCO part# 5551 or BENDIX part# 314287, 80-85 Cadillac Seville calipers - WAGNER (loaded) part# left L107094 & part# right L107095. I recommend loaded calipers because they come with semi-metallic pads, new mounting bolts, bushings etc, making them ready to install. I also recommend going to a salvage yard and getting a pair of the calipers to use as cores for 2 reasons: to beat the hefty $35.00 core charge per caliper and you also will get the e-brake levers, brackets, and springs, which I understand are still available new from GM, but at a steep price.
Although it doesn't show in the pictures, I lengthened the e-brake cable brackets by 1-1/2" and used longer return springs to give more clearance by the coil springs. I'm using unmodified vega e-brake cables. The springs I found had the same wire diameter and about the same number of coils per inch. I cut them 1-1/2" longer than original.
I switched the e-brake levers side for side for coil spring clearance after these pictures were taken.
This shows the driver's side STEELTECH SOLUTIONS caliper bracket. The brackets bolt on in place of the drum brake backing plates.I also had to turn down the axle flange diameter to 5.850" so they would fit into the Camaro rotors.
This shows the passenger side flex hose to tubing junction bracket I made from a portion of a Vega front brake hose bracket welded to a section of 3" pipe, powder coated and held on with a stainless band clamp. The flex hoses are NOS Monza front ones I had sitting around. The length is perfect for this mounting location. I also had to bend up new left and right brake lines, although that is not shown.
This shows the 3rd generation Camaro 4 wheel disc brake master cylinder I used, along with the WILWOOD part# 260-2220 adjustable proportioning valve plumbed into the rear brake line.
