Front

98-02 Camaro calipers "semi-loaded" with brackets
00-05 Impala slotted and cross drilled rotors

Around $300

Rear

2005 Pontaic Grand Prix GXP calipers "loaded" with pads and brackets
2005 Pontaic Grand Prix GXP cross drilled rotors

Around $250

Granted I opted to go with ceramic pads all around. A lot less dust!!

Jammed my brakes twice so far. Once for fun and testing and my eyes fell out, the second a panic stop to not run a red light at 65 MPH (highway) and stopped 50 feet short of the intersection when stock would have put me thru the light

Everything bolts up like a regular brake change...

Also, it doesn't make a difference if you order rotors for an Impala or a Camaro. They're the same part number.

The rear brackets take a little bit of hammer to fit between the backing plate and the dust shelid, but it fits

I'm gonna go ahead and throw this out there, but if I do just the fronts, I would need to buy new pads that fit the camaro calipers... correct?

Don't you also need a rim that is 17" or bigger for this upgrade to work?

IIRC ... The figue is rotor size plus 4" ... so this swap (12" rotors) should fit under most 16" wheels.

Hopefully this isn't a dumb question: but do you have rear drum brakes or the rotors?

It looks like your car has 15's so I think your going to have to get new wheels to do the front brake upgrade. (someone correct me if Im wrong)

16" wheels should be good for the F-Body calipers.

I haven't tried my 16 inch stockers on there yet, but I know for a fact you will need a new spare tire. the 15 inch compact spare will not fit this set-up. I've seen Alero stock 16's on this set up. Also 16 inch "skinny spoke" Grand Prix rims fit well too

You can convert drums to rotors, but IDK how. I've never done it

I was talking with my neighbour, who is a GM mechanic, and he was saying I could just use the GXP set up for both front and rear... what is the difference between using the front's and the Camaro/Impala combo?

The GXP uses a 13" rotor so that pushes your minimum wheel size to 17". There is a bracket setup being made to use the C5/C6 corvette parts. It's a 12.98" directional rotor.

That's right, if you have Camaro calipers you need Camaro pads. Of course, you can also use the Corvette stuff from the same time frame... I believe it's C5. They bolt right on, but you're also guaranteeing that you'll need 17" wheels since the Corvette calipers have cooling fins on them.

I have a write up on here if anyone is interested in converting their rear drums to disc. It's not complicated, just somewhat annoying.

The cooling fins on the Corvette/GTO/XLR calipers just extend further on the caliper. Either way, the C5 and C6 as well as the GTO and XLR calipers will fit.
