Default 2002 LS1 Trans Am brake on a 87 MC SS

is this possible to swap the calipers and rotors over to my MC I already have rear disc, but the rotors on the Transam are bigger and I would imagine the calipers would also be stronger

I'm trying to do the same rear brake conversion but my snags that I've ran into are the proportioning valve which somebody told me that I could get a disc to disc proportioning valve for GMC cars from eBay so I'm gonna look and see if that's true. The next is the e-brake cables and I don't know where to get relocation brackets for my rear shocks!!!!! I don't know how to make any and if I could, I wouldn't have the place to do so. Is it anybody on here that knows where I could buy a pair or something? Hell if it's somebody on here that knows how to make a set, I would be willing to pay them to do so.

Go to Baer Brakes Part number 6801105 for the shock relocation bracket. Also do a search on ebay for the same part number.
