Brembos up front, Disc Rear on 06 2LT

I just finished installing my Brembo calipers on my 2006 2LT. I already did a rear disc conversion about 2 months ago and now with the bigger brakes up front to complete the package the car stops great. No brake fade and when you get on it the car really grabs. I have pics but I can't figure out how to post them.

I used 1/8 spacers from summit racing, there is no clearance issues.

Pics of the Rears and a HOW-TO !

I tried buying an SS rear axle but the junk yard never sent to pics before I drove the 200 miles to go buy it, so I moved on to other projects.

The Supercharger is going in before I add rear disks now.

But a good how to with part #'s included would be very cool if you did it without buying a SS rear axle.

Fronts look good.

Thanks, Here is one,the rears are not as cool as the front, all I did is find a cobalt ss rear axle end and bolt it on, very easy, but I found out the calipers are used for the parking brake and adjusting the rear parking brake is a must for a better pedal feel.
