Want to do it, at least the front brakes.  Who are the go-to manufacturers?  I'd love made in the U.S.A., but I want some quality stuff more than anything.  Who's done it? what should i look out for when buying?

What is better than Made in USA chevrolet? go to your local wrecking yard for disc brakes on your Camaro. I used 74 Nova brakes on mine everything bolts right up. It's a simple swap.

I put Aerospace Componants on all 4 corners. Been really happy with the performance and looks.

You can get the Parts cheep at the Salvage yard 100.00 or All New From Speedway for 4++.00-to 699.00 for 12"and larger,then you can start buying Larger calipers Too. I see a lot of Ads from Chevy classic parts or Classic Chevy Parts.You'll need a new Master and A porportioning Valve, but it is Simple, the Hard Part Being removing Old Parts without Damaging stuff you will want new rubber hoses and being adept with a tubing Bender and flare tool is Helpful,Brake rod to master may get Raised to upperhole on brake pedal,you don't need as much Leverage with Power.

I forgot to mention when you get to the larger rotors/12" and larger it becomes nessary to use the Larger wheels/17" up. A proper set up with Factory Sized Brakes will put the Bumper on the Ground.
