    "The Camaro rotor are a lot more shallow than our stock rotors which puts the braking surface of the rotor and the caliper A LOT closer to the face of the wheel. I Unbolt the backing plate, got longer bolts and spaced it out 1" to get the parking brake drum/ shoe to line up, plus running a 1" spacer. I still had to do a lot of grinding to get the caliper to clear "

    I have an adjustable proportioning valve, but think you could get away without it....you should get longer brake hoses, but that's as far as you have to go, the booster and lines can all stay untouched.

    Mark do you need atleast 18" wheels, or do you think the stock 17's will work with this set up.

    On the front depending on your exact wheel a 17" "might" fit, I'm running 18"s and have about a half inch clearance with the CTS V calipers. Moving the front GTO calipers to the rear I'd say no way....I had to do ALOT of grinding on the back of the calipers to get them to an 1/8"+ clearance in my 18"s.
