The biggest place I notice the weight is going down the road hitting bumps. My teins just dont dampen as well with the heavier suspension. The are set pretty low though.

i'll keep my rears

You don't happen to have side by side pics of the original bracket next to a modified by chance? Or even a quick and dirty guide to modding the bracket? From the looks of it, seems similar enough to Wilwoods, so shouldn't be that difficult to figure out. Just with junkyards out here being on short supply of.... well, everything........ finding "experiment" brackets is not something I really want to do (nearest jy that has them is 100+ miles away).

Winter + boredom = teh failz

Yup cobalt ss rotors
Apparently this is why the guy was selling the kit...
Jealous man!!! I want that stopping power

On a side note... Any suggestions where I can get a new ss brake line, or another adapter that will work with camaro calipers?

not a clue, I need adapters to go from stock cavy thread to camaro thread. One is 3/8 and the other is 10mm but cannot remember which.

The fitting on the cav side where it transitions from the hard line to the rubber should be m10x1.0

Interesting...
My banjo was quite a bit different on the 99 caliper
Plus I've got custom SS lines so the stock wont (ideally) be used

From 98-02 they all have the same brakes. All have dual piston calipers. But if it helps the Fbody guys that have the 95-97 camaros that swap the parts call it the SS brake swap.
