I decided to use the same 2002 Camaro brakes on the rear as I did on the front. To make that work I needed to make mounting brackets and brake-line mounts. There will not be a parking brake on the rear wheels. Instead following this description of the build will be how I made a pinion mounted parking brake. Here’s how I did it.

 

        

 I fabricated this rear bracket from 7075 grade aluminum 3/8” thick. Steel should work as well. Used (3) 3/8 grade 8 bolts torqued to 50 lb-ft on each side.

     

         I made the bracket so that the 2002 Camaro calipers are forward of the rear axle rather than at the rear of the axle. This is strictly for “looks”. I like how the rear calipers are towards the center of the vehicle like the fronts are. Caliper mounting hardware similar to front. 12mm x 1.75 x 40mm long, torqued to 65 lb-ft. Used washers to space out the caliper until it was centered on rotor.
