    I am looking to get disc brakes on the rear of my 68 riv gs. Any advice?

    Cadillac Seville (76 - 79) may be adaptable. Or 77 - 78 Riveria. Maybe someone who knows the interchange on the outer axle tube flange could help more. Believe the outer bolt pattern of the flange was the same - for many different cars and axle units. Could suggest "Philip" on the Nova sites, he has a wealth of knowledge, using stock parts. Have also heard of "Scarebird" but don't know much about them. Good luck!!

    From what I've seen on the scarebird website the only offer the bracket with a parking brake, clips and hardware. You have to source the calipers, pads, hoses and rotors separately. They don't have a complete bolt on kit but it does look like it would work good.

    Call scarebird they will email you a complete parts list and part years, makes, models etc everything comes from to do the swap. I have the list for my 69 Riv that I could post if you'd like? 68&69 should be the same right?
