Well there's your problem.. the front is bigger than what would need to be on the back to clear. I used LT1 Fbody Rear Disc, and they are about the biggest you can get in a 15" wheel and clear.

Okay, that’s what I will look into. Is there a bolt on option available for that for a 9”? Thank you so much for helping me out!

What rotor are you running in back? The pad and caliper seem to be sitting a good bit further away from the hub portion of the rotor than a stock gbody rotor sees...

Look how the edge of the pad almost touches the edge of the stock gbody rotor. The pads and edge of caliper on your rear rotor looks a good bit further away:

It is an 11” rotor. I bought the kit as a bolt on add on from the same company I bought the rearend from (PEM) Iv used them in the past on all my dirt track racecar stuff and had great luck. The kit I bought and installed is a really nice setup except for this clearance issue

I ordered my 9" Housing from Quick Performance with Fbody Endcaps so I could directly bolt up the Camaro Rear Discs.
I really wish I wasn’t so ignorant to this and would have done the same. I’ll probably be building something to make Camaro brakes work now. The bad part is there was an option when I bought my rearend for Camaro brakes and I just didn’t know any better
