New brake line kits seems to come with them.

You can also buy them at the dealer. I think they are $1.25 a piece MSRP.

Hi there,
Just curious if there's someone interested in buying a full kit of Brembos (calipers+rotors) used for 22k miles. The rotors are Brembo Performance drilled (last two pics) with only 8k on them, don't know the part #.So, to be clear the rotors what you'll get are drilled and shown in the last two pictures.I have the calipers painted yellow ,but they'll need to be repainted because they are dirty.The first image is since I installed them, now they look , let's say not that clean anymore.
I bought these new and installed them on my V6 and they work PERFECT, no rebuild necessary, just bolt them on and enjoy.
PM me if interested.
Thanks

Ok, after cutting the shield in the back for the SS rotors to fit instead of replacing it with the SS shield do you get a lot more brake dust on your wheels after the upgrade that you have noticed?

Yes, unfortunately you will get a bit more brake dust because of cutting the shields.

According to the ZL1 brake upgrade kit instructions (I have a copy) it's a 1.5 hour job to install the rear brembo brakes and replace the dust shields with the SS ones.

Basically you have to remove the e brake on both sides, change the shields then reinstall the e brakes. Some on here have said you have to pull the axles. According the the GM instructions you do not.

What they said. Its a lot of work to change two dust shields. You don't have to pull the axles but you do have to remove the rear hubs.

Great choice, you certainly can't go wrong with Brembo. Very high quality. Nice job...

Does anyone know what the torque specs are for the banjo bolts for the calipers?

The ZL1 Brembo upgrade kit instructions say 40 N-M (30 lb -ft). I'd think it would be the same for the SS Brembos.

Ok. The front 2012 SS Brembo calipers I bought has the weights on them from the factory but no rollers. Should I leave the weights on them or can I take them off?

Unless you are repainting or powder coating, leave them on.

They are supposed to reduce noise.

Those are probably 2010 brakes. Check the dust boots carefully. It may be time to replace them.

The rollers you mention are part of the pads, not the calipers.

I am going to have them powder coated yellow. I know the rollers are part of the pads. They have the factory original pads with only 5,000 miles and pads are thick and look brand new so the boots should not need replaced. He showed me his car and it was a 2012 they came off of. So does the roller pads or the weights work better?

I don't know.

I'd try the lubricant solutions to noise offered elsewhere on this forum before I'd go with the rollers. The rollers appear like they'd make it harder to wash the wheels. They'd also make switching to a 19" wheel (like the Z/28) a non starter.

Ok. So should I stay with the same brake fluid or upgrade to the Motul?

From what I have been told you want the DOT4 fluid if you are tracking the car. If not, DOT 3 should be sufficient.

DISCLAIMER: I'm just repeating what I have read/heard. You should ask a certified mechanic this question.

I am going to the track a few times a year and used Prestone DOT 3 , never had a problem.At the end of the day I always have to bleed the brakes and there's always a spongy feeling after a day at the track , but once I bleed them , everything goes back to normal....I don't know what causes that , but it happends to all of my friends with different cars and different DOT ratings fluids,fancy racing fluids,and cheap fluids......So , go with DOT 3.
