Yes, The svt brakes are a direct bolt on. Your going from a 10.9'' to a 11.8'' rotor w/ bigger calipers. I'd add a set of ss brake lines to it.

braided stainless steel lines. you can do a front and rear conversion to swap to SVT rotors in the rear and get rid of the drums as well. russel makes a good ss brake line kit for svt brakes. look on ebay
