    I have a 1979 Z-28 RS Camaro Pro-Touring Car with a Vette Brakes C-4 Corvette adjustable monoleaf front suspension .I bought mine in the mid 1980`s It has Baer Brakes 13" inch front and 12" rear 4 wheel disc brakes.I don`t see it in their catalogs any more . 130044932860518017_26257430996_o (1).jpg

    And it's far from a bolt in. Dave did a nice write up on putting it in Mary's car

    Oh yeah - it's a nightmare to install. I'm just correcting that it's NOT a C4 Corvette rear end that AM uses

    None of those parts are useful to you.

    The old vette brakes setup doesn't use those parts.

    Zspoiler said he had done it. I was just curious to his experience of the mods.
