From my understanding, the brake (and possibly) suspension on 3rd gen F-bodies are upgrades to the G or S10 platforms. That being said, grab rear discs if it has them.
The anti sway bar you need for the 67 is 2nd gen F-body.

The front sway bar would work for the '83, though it may not be any bigger than the F41 G-body bar. Could be a 34mm or 36mm hollow bar vs the 32mm solid on the G-body.

The front brakes aren't an interchange, the rears could have the 3 or 4 bolt flange, I can't remember all the details. Even then, the old school PBR calipers with external parking brake mechanism will hit the frame on a G-body unless you clock them downwards.

83hurstguy, the front bar on that z28 is probably 1.25" or thicker. it's a solid bar, too.

thx,
bill
