Question 1981 Z-28 rear disc brake diagram

Do any of you Nasty Z members have or can reccomend a repair manual on factory rear disc brakes? The several manuals I have only cover rear drum systems. I would like to have diagrams and specs before I tear them down for repair. D Shooting for a spring launch date on the project. Thanks for all help.

Try looking it up under the same year range Trans Am. I don't believe you could get rear discs on the Camaro from the factory. It is a very common swap to use the Trans Am set up which was available.

that is because 1981 Camaros never came with rear disc. As mentioned, check out a pontiac manual.

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold. I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors.

Well, it's all making sense now! Thanks for the information. Now if I can make sense out of why I decided to do a complete tear down of the car!
