How hard is it to install SS brimbo calipers on V6 help

Was wondering if I had the calipers , pads , rotors , and lines . What else would I need and would it work ?

You won't likely be able to find any parts for Brimbo brakes, but Brembo brakes should be no problem.

You may need different steering knuckles as well. Check to see if they are the same. Otherwise, your parts list looks correct.

The only thing that is different is the dust shield, but you can easily trim those down

Why not look in the Do It Yourself section. Not trying to be smart but guys have taken the time to write detailed DIY Threads. Instead of getting Bit By Bit on this thread.

I would replace the caliper bolts at the same time. The rear dust shields will have to either be trimmed or replaced. I'm replacing my dust shield since I'm upgrading to 1LE hubs/axle/diff at the same time. Since I will have the rear knuckle taken apart, might as well replace the dust shield.

You can keep your master cylinder, but it may make the brakes a little more touchier.

I would also swap out the V6 Master Cylinder for a V8 Master Cylinder as the V8 one gives more pressure and is recommended by GM Performance Parts. At least that is what most of us did when we did the Brembo swap. I trimmed my rear backing plates.

Yeah I forgot about that piece. I myself didn't replace the master cylinder, just a stiffer brake pedal feel. No problems running it though
