Re: 9 bolt brake problems
Call hawks or someone and get the PBR rear disc set-up. I think someone stole the rear disc off of yours since not many 9 bolts had drums but some of them did. The PBR rear disc set-up came on 89 cars only. I think the calipers are the same on the 88-96 corvette and 89-92 camaro and trans am. If you can get the backing plates the rest should be easy but you can probably get an entire set-up from hawks. I remember seeing a third gen place from Florida that usually has 9 bolt PBR stuff for sale but I can't remember there name. The brakes are 11.7 inches wide and are as good as about anything out there. I just installed a 89 trans am 9 bolt PBR posi rear in my 92 Z convertible and it works great. I have three of the rears and one ford 9 but for 400HP or less a 9 bolt with PBRs is the way to go. Like most people I thought a 10 bolt was better untill I looked at the engineering of the 9 bolt and it is far superior to a 10 bolt. Parts are harder to get but worth the headache.
