Brembo brakes installed on my 2LT/RS >>>>

Today was a good work day we installed a complete Brembo Brake kit from a
2SS/RS and put them on my 2LT/RS.

First off special thanks to Fesler Built (www.feslerbuilt.com) for the OEM Brembo brakes off a 2010 Camaro SS I was able to pick up a complete kit from them (take off) rotors, pads, calipers, and brake lines).

We started this morning around 9:30-10am and we finished just after 12 noon. The front SS rotors and calipers bolt right up no modifications needed.

The rear SS rotors are a good 1-2" larger than the V6 rotors so you have two options replace the rear brake rotor shield with one from the SS cars or trim the existing one by 5/8" and the rotors will clear with no issues. The Brembo calipers mount up to all of the existing holes and the V8 brake lines or aftermarket ones are a must to reach.

I can tell what a difference in stopping power well worth the time in upgrading.

V6 owners with the RS package will have no issues with installing these.
Here you go lots of photos of the install.

I have been debating about doing this for a while now. Relieved to hear it's pretty much a bolt on job! Great pics. Now I just need RS wheels

What a relief to know it is a bolt on deal. We just received a set of SS brakes from Hennessey for my son's 2LT/RS so we are right behind you. I assume you bled the brakes. Is it OK to reuse the original mounting bolts? Overall not too much hassle? Thanks!

Yep fronts will be no problem you will just need to trim the rear rotor plate
5/8" so the rotor will fit with no issues. Other than that a piece of cake we took our time as we wanted to make sure everything fit.

Yep we bled the brakes and you can reuse the stock mounting bolts. We ended up using less than 1pt of ne brake fluid.

Yep the stock V6 ones are too short.

Glad I could help it's a great mod and you will enjoy the better stopping power

Great info. Thanks for posting. Will reference this when I sell my SS stock brakes to upgrade to either Brembo GT or CTS-V spec.

I would definitely put these once the stock brakes wear out or I have some funds to spare. But I would be too scared to put these on myself

Messing around with brakes scares me LOL.

Hey!!!! Those look just like mine.

You said it was worth the time. But is the stopping difference woth the money? Basically is the difference a super duper difference? I wondered about this.

IMHO yes a big difference with a slight touch of the pedal she wants to stop not like the factory V6 brakes.

Yep drop Chris a line at Fesler great bunch to work with.

Looks GREAT. I am happy to hear that it is an easy install, however I am also not wanting to play around with my brakes.

Trust me I understand I would have had a shop install them but my father is a retired ASE Cert GM mechanic he used to work on the Corvettes so I felt I was in good hands.

How bad is the Brake Dust buildup on the wheels? Is is better or worse than the stock V-6 Brakes.

Great Job on the install.
