    Jay at Zeus Performance and I discussed this the other day. He actually told me that brake hoses off a Monte Carlo will make the swap alot easier. If anyone is interested I'll get the parts number for the hoses.

    Monte Carlo you say?

    AcDelco Part #18J1650

    I would believe that the lines work. For me to put 98+ Calipers on my Monte Carlo it is basically a bolt on, I just need to tap the 12mm bolts to be a 14mm

    Really all you would need is a longer version of the 93-97 brake hoses to make it work with no modification. It seems putting these brakes on other gm cars is a pretty popular mod. They will swap onto a N-body with no mods whatsoever. You just need an Impala 12" rotor, F-body calipers, and F-body pads.

    You have any idea on the length of the Monte hoses?

    It's popular because 2-piston, direct bolt-on, and lighter.

    I don't know the length of the hose off hand.
