you have a number of options, depending on your rules where you race. you can put the 74 nova factory disc brakes on it, or 70 thru 81 camaro spindles turned around with the left on the right and vice versa. you have bumpsteer issues as well as a roll center change when you do this. also you can use hats and rotors like you would use on a rearend, and use the flat gm caliper bracket welded on the spindle. you have to do some grinding and welding, but this is the lightest way to do it. i have the complete disc brake (stock 74 nova) setup i would sell ya, but shipping may be high i dont know. call me if your interested. neil (770)639-5895
