    Yeah, but it wouldn't be easy. You'd have to make custom brackets to mount the calipers to the hubs, and then you'd have to find rotors that would fit,..ect..ect. Anything is possible with the right amount of money.

    More plausible to use F-Body brakes.

    I think someone here mentioned that the front calipers and rotors from the Older F-bodies (i.e. LT1 cars) fit the front of the older chassis cars (1997 and older). I'm not sure if it's really possible, but maybe worth looking into.
