You could likely use this, but you will need to use a 1978-1988 GM metric caliper with it.

Hi I really like the look of this bracket I want to use it on my ford 8.8 axle to fit disc in the rear since my explorer disc set up won't fit. Do you think it can fit a 3.25 axle tube? And can it be used with an 11.25 rotor?

The contour of the bracket would need to be opened up to fit on a 3.25" housing, and then it would not fit a 11 3/4" rotor as the bracket will move toward the rear end tube.

Will this bracket work with your #91031046 E-brake metric caliper? I am planning to set up one of your # 91048323 GN rear axles for street use.

When using part number 91031046 E-brake caliper, we recommend using the flat plate bracket part number 91641009 to avoid clearance issues.

No this bracket does not work with '96 Camaro rear calipers. Sorry we do not offer a bracket for those calipers.
