Where to buy Brembo pistons?

As part of a caliper rebuild project I'd like to replace a couple pistons on the rear SS calipers.

Anyone know of any sources?

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Call them, they can send you just the pistons too. The bonus is they are stainless steel so they will dissipate heat better.

You might be able to find someone who is upgrading to the RB kit and has the stockers left over.

If you aren't in a hurry I'll probably be a guy in that position. I'm on the fence about doing the whole piston kit when I rebuild the CTS-V stuff that's on it's way.

I'm really leaning towards doing the whole deal though. It will be at least a few weeks.

I'd suggest everyone go to amazon and type in"

"Camaro Caliper 2012"

There are some very interesting results (cheap rear calipers) and prices.
