View Full Version : ls1 brake conversion on rear of 68 firebird

If I use ls1 rear brakes on a 10 or 12 bolt of a 68 firebird are there any modifications required? IE relocating shocks, using two right hand brakes, etc.

as far as i understand if you have staggered shocks you need to two rights... and you will need to make new brake lines..

I think that if you use the LS1 backing plate with C5 rotors and calipers, you can avoid the shock interference issue. The calipers get moved outboard about 1". Of course this could cause wheel clearance issues.

is there a article outthere that goes over what you need to do a ls1 front rear upgrade?
