Rear disc conversion - 66 Impala
Posting a new thread on this as I didn't see anything with my specific application answered within this forum.
I have a 66 Impala I am trying to convert the rear drums to disc's on. Trick is I am told I have a Pontiac 10 bolt rearend - based on the wheel bearing size when I purchased new bearings. The ones for a GM rear end didn't fit so I went back to parts store and they mentioned some of my year had a Pontiac rearend and the bearing fit my car for a Pontiac rear end in their computer for my car.
So I tried a 98 camaro brake plate as I read those would work but it didn't fit over the hub. That plate was 2 3/8ish wide in the center and bolt holes are 3 3 3/8ish wide (center to center). It just barely didn't fit over the axle hub, but very close. Photos of the hub with tape measure lower in the thread.
I also read the 95-97 camaro with a v8 will work but just curious if anyone has any idea on those?
So sum and substance does anyone know if there is a set of brakes I could snag off something at the junkyard and avoid the expensive kits? Considering the 98 brakes where $65 for both sides, less the rotor I think this is a good, cost effective idea.?.?..
Thanks in advance for your input!
