I did my brake conversion before I knew about the cobalt, I used 300ZX turbo calipers in the front and turbo RX7 in the rears, had to keep the stock rear caliper for the parking brakes. Stops great and didn't need a larger master cylinder! have pics also

This is what I have, I do all my own custom work, welding, machining, drilling, all of it. the rotors are also my own work, and have over 50,000 miles on them and are still straight and true! And the pipe is the only pipe so far that hasn't split or cracked on me!

Good work on trying something different. The rears just look kind of weird having two calipers attached

Brembo Brake Upgrade Kit for LSJ's BBUK - Crate Engine Depot

Saw this on Crate Engine Depot. Only question is, can someone provide me a link to spacers? I know qwik said he didn't need them. Is the verdict that we would need spacers or not? Using stock rims of course...

no the stock wheels will not clear with stock nuckles. you need to use TC nuckles to not use wheel spacers. i did the swap a while ago and went through this problem and just used spacers.
