Well the ebrake is something different, it's inside the rear rotor it has nothing to do with the capliers.

But my ebrake is going too. I want to replace those as well

I bought an shipped e brake shoes to Marrko a while ago. They were $95 at AutoZone and in the shape of a "C"

They have holes for the e brake cable, but IDK exactly how to hook them up. Maybe somebody can chime in

They are exactly like drum brakes. Have you ever done drums??? They suck tho, a real pain in the ass

Edit: Alright, drums and Ebrakes arent exactly the same, But they are extremely similar and can still be a pita to do.

Never did drums. Never wanted to.

Do you need the speical drum brake tool for the e brake job?

Playing around on Rock Auto and I see that they sell the calipers and brackets as a kit, pretty cheap too

Because the stock rotor is like 11ish inches and these are 12 inch rotors.

Because the Camaro calipers are set up to work on a 12 inch rotor, not an 11 like what comes on the Alero/GA/Malibu stock.

You need 2000-2005 IMPALA rotors, not too sure where you got that Malibu rotors will work on this conversion.

I wanna know the part number for GXP caliper and no one has definitively said that the e-brake works with those calipers also. Can anyone verify ??
