Caliper upgrade for V6

Hey guys im driving a 2014 2LT and I'd like to upgrade from my stock calipers but don't want to spend crazy money on chevy SS brake kit $5600.00! Any thought and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Find a used set of SS take offs on here. Here it will not be anywhere close to $5600. I did a direct swap on mine so all I paid was to get them installed.

You can do the CTS-V upgrade I'm looking on now and looks SWEET! 6 Piston Bermbo up front. Could all be done for maybe $1700 with Big cool Rotors.

Our CTS-V Stage 2 brake upgrade may be just what you're looking for; Part # JDPB1002. It's a complete kit with everything needed, right down to the pads and fluid. If I can answer any questions, just let me know!

Best regards,

It may take a while and you have to be quick but keep on the member sales and you can pick up a complete set used for $1000.00 or less. You can do the install yourself just look in the DYI section.

I bought a full front and rear SS Brembo set for $750 in the marketplace section.

Had the calipers powder coated red. Looks great and the added stopping power is awesome on the track.

Just go to your local scrap yard like I did...from a Brand new 2014 SS..I bought a full front and rear SS Brembo set for $400 CDN ...discs, shoes, calipers, rotors, brake lines, & even the hand brake pads came with it...Anything under $800 is a good deal...

Your very cute cabbe bet you made yourself smile, the ss kit I was referring to is an entire brake system, master cyclinder, lines, etc. I realize its ridiculously expensive and was looking for help, but I understand a few like yourself can't help but be useless.
