    Anyone put front calipers & rotors on rear??

    Hey everyone I was wondering if anyone has ever put front brakes,rotors and calibers on the rear of there camaro or trans am? I have a 99 SS that im trying to fix back up and also a 99 z28 that im using for spare parts, and I was thinking about putting the Z28's front brakes ,rotors and calibers on my SS's rear. Is this a waste of time, stupid for even thinking it or what??? Thanks for your input.

    I doubt it would work the rear rotor has the parking brake drum built into it. Unless they changed from 99-01. Not sure how you could mount the front brake parts onto your rearend. You maybe able to get brackets to hold the caliper then get a seperate set up for parking brake. Not sure though if you could even use front rotors though, my guess would be no..good luck.
