Contact Kore3, they should hook you up using C5 brakes. Post some pics of that bad boy you got!

rear discs

Go to www.classicindustries.com and search for part # A1254. I can't vouch for it; I just saw it in a catalog.

Thanks for the Kore3 name. Haven't heard of them and they have some nice hardware.

Might consider an axle from a 94-96 Impala or 9C1 as those got discs, and being a factory setup parts are easy and relatively cheap. Also gives you a nice strong 30-spline 8.5" strong as a 12-bolt.

Not sure if the brakes from those would retrofit to your axle or not.
