oi... please... search. I know it sounds repeditive, but you really need to do this. There is no mainstream rear disc kit for the 2nd gens... you're looking completely custom. There was a disscussion about this about a month ago.

Bear brakes does make a rear disc conversion for 82-current J-bodies, but it converts to 12" rotors. It's supposed to be used with their 13" or 12" front brake conversion that is only currently made for the 3rd gen J-bodies. But from what I heard, the the only difference between the 2nd gens and the 3rd gens is that the steering knuckle has been placed on the spindle, so if the knuckle is cut off the spindle the kit can supposedly be used on our cars. Check out their website at www.baer.com.

It's a lot of work I have over $300 CDN into mine so far and still need about $200 to $300 worth of parts to finish it off, I also did most of teh work adapting them, I was hoping to be able to make it into a kit, but unfortunatly the only way to do it is cut and weld a few things, the bolt spacing is to close to overlapping to make it a bolt on.

I know this is a old subject, but I just have to tell you what me and my freinds saw, A white 91-94 Z24 With front and rear disk brakes. It was in Meijers parking lot so I do not know who's it is! But I did leave a note on the window, praying that he/she will call me about the disk brakes.

I was wondering if the Olds Alero's rear disks could be adapted. They have the same style rear end and have the 5x100 mm bolt circle.

No they don't.

WHY does everyone seem to think the Alero is 5x100? It's 5 x 115mm. :roll: And they are also independant rear.

I was told that I could take a rear axel and Disk brakes off of a 95 Monti Carlo and it will fit up to our 2nd Gen. Z24's I am going to give it a try after lots of resurch.

Someone on the .org site was talking about the rear disc brakes from a Neon. I think he never went through with the swap, though.

Well the disk brakes off of a 95 monti Carlo will not work! Next I am looking up To get a rear disk brake's off a 2001-2003 Cavalier I would have independent suspension to. But I would have to take every thing off of the 2001 to put it on mine just have to see if the bolt pattern would work but I do think it will fit. Will keep you updated!
