i have a 96 firebird and im wanting to run a deeper rear wheel but i want to keep my disc brakes. i got a whole rearend out of a 92 camaro with drum brakes and was wondering if my brakes will work on the 3rd gen housing.

i'm almost certain you'll need to modify the drum brake flange to accept the caliper mount in some way

i'd find a disc rear end if i were you, and just use the 3rd gen disc brakes. honestly i always liked the 3rd gen rear brakes more anyway, they're a real caliper instead of that totally oddball widget they stuck on the 4th gens.
im going to go with a 9 inch eventually just tryin to just buy rear wheels once and i got this rearend for free and just hate to put any money into a 10 bolt lol
