I thought F-41 was just a 3rd Gen Camaro thing, but I could easily be wrong on that.. On an 81 T/A you should have the Radial Tuned Suspension.

Ok thanks, I was looking under f-bodys rather than just Firebirds for brake lines, the brake line going from front to the back is that the same for both disk and drums?

The brake lines should be the same whether disk or drum.
