I am looking to get disc brakes on the rear of my 68 riv gs. Any advice?
Cadillac Seville (76 - 79) may be adaptable. Or 77 - 78 Riveria. Maybe someone who knows the interchange on the outer axle tube flange could help more. Believe the outer bolt pattern of the flange was the same - for many different cars and axle units. Could suggest "Philip" on the Nova sites, he has a wealth of knowledge, using stock parts. Have also heard of "Scarebird" but don't know much about them. Good luck!!
Is there a conversion kit for the rear ?
Would look up scarebird first have heard them mentioned more than once on this site.
From what I've seen on the scarebird website the only offer the bracket with a parking brake, clips and hardware. You have to source the calipers, pads, hoses and rotors separately. They don't have a complete bolt on kit but it does look like it would work good.
Call scarebird they will email you a complete parts list and part years, makes, models etc everything comes from to do the swap. I have the list for my 69 Riv that I could post if you'd like? 68&69 should be the same right?
