what exactly do I need to do a 15 inch rear conversion?

I know a lot of vendors sell the kits but I want to go the cheap route since a weld rts setup ain't cheap but im planning to go with those wheels. Im welder and I feel pretty confident I can modify the stock lower control arms and reinforce them more. There's a couple v6 camaros in the junk yards around here so I can get the v6 brakes from there. What else would I need to complete the setup?

I think you have to grind down the v6 calipers also.

dont think the op is looking for a high dollar kit of stuff he doesn't need. Looks like he has enough sense to build/modify his own parts. I'm sure it can be done and I will attempt to tackle this in a few weeks myself.

I was simply giving a reference of what is needed so one can decide what is build-able on their end and what might have to be purchased.

BMR's is OVER-Priced IMO
I got the ADM kit which is no longer made for 1/3 of the price of BMR's kit.

You can still buy ADM's V6 brake kit and or buy the Mark Carlyle 15'' kit priced at $1,800
