4th Gen LS1/C5 Brakes on a 3rd gen???

Hey everyone!

A little while ago I had a thread on here asking about putting 4th gen LS1 brakes or possibly C5 front brakes on a 3rd gen. Someone was gracious enough to give me a link to some websites that had info about doing that. Unfortunately my old computer had a major meltdown and I lost the link. All I can seem to find now is dead links or 1st or 2nd gen Camaro stuff. Does anyone know where I could find 3rd gen swap info again?

Thanks in advance and a thanks in general to all of you who reply to posts like these.

I've been doing LS1 and C5 conversions for 3rd gens for a year now, also 13" C4s as well. The C5s will require 17" wheels to clear the calipers on C5s.

1988 IROC, 1LE brakes, SLP, Dynomax, Eibach, ES, Earl's, KYBs, Hotchkis, BMR, Spohn, lotsa stuff...
1991 RS, 13" Corvette C4 HD brakes, LS1 alum driveshaft, Jamex STB, ES bushings, BMR susp, KYBs.... "bone stock daily driver"
