Default 1993 Firebird Formula Brakes on A 1969 Chevelle???

Doing an LT1 engine and tranny swap from my 93 bird into my 69 and was wondering if I could swap the brakes from my 93 bird to the Chevelle, just the front disc and power booster and maybe the ABS system, since I have the whole car. Any body know of a site that could help with what I would need to do.

I can answer on the ABS and that would be NO, the hyd and electronic are specific to the car and putting them into a full frame heavier car would be counter productive and give you horrible unpredicted braking.

Sorry can't answer that question, I would try the Team Chevelle Forum and do a search to see what comes up. www.chevelles.com
