GBody 10/12 Bolt Chevy Rear End Big Disc brake upgrade, DO IT YOURSELF (PART 1)
READ DESCRIPTION- This rear end came out of and is going in a GBody
Doing this video, first of all, because I can. Second to provide a more
descriptive how to on doing a rear disc upgrade for your Chevy 10/12 Bolt
rear end. With slight modification to your housing ends, you can put
98-2002 Camaro rear
disc brakes on the car, changing the drums. You can also save a ton of
money, if you pull decent used parts from a donor car (at the junk yard)
and if you catch them on a half off day, you will save even more money. I
usually have a setup laying around, but instead of buying them from
someone, I encourage you to pull them yourself.
You can pull them off the donor vehicle, by taking the rear wheels off (if
they are on), removing the rear caliper and pabs (retaining the
bolts/hardware). the you will need to pull the axles (which is done the
same way I show you in the video). then pull the ebrake/backing plate
assembly and all bolts... if you want, pull the ebrake cable too, this may
help you modify your vehicle so that the ebrake works properly.
I do not know everything, but if you ask any questions, I will share what I
What you will need:
- donor rear brakes (either new or) from a 09-02 Camaro
- longer studs, 10 (at least 2.5" long) and for your vehicles proper
- gear oil (and additive, if you have a posi unit)
- 3/8 inch drill bit and smaller bit for pilot holes (must be able to
drill through steel)
- sawzaw, hand saw, grinder, torch, or whatever you can use to cut
- should replace the seals and bearings while you are at it
- I normally get new rotors and pads (brake motive has them for crazy
- disc/disc prop valve, or modify your stock, or add adj prop valve to
- shock relocation brackets, which can be made from angle iron, misc
Last but not least, you need COMMON SENSE! I may have missed a thing or to
in the list but it will be explained in the video.
Certain aftermarket 15" wheels may work with this upgrade, but you will
more than likely need 16" or larger wheels. Do your research...
