What exactly do I need to upgrade the v6 to SS brembos?

4 Calipers
4 Rotors
4 Sets of Pads
Brake lines
Replace the master cylinder (required?)


Anything else?

Awesome. Thank you. Didn't realize it wouldn't use the same bolts as the current calipers.

you can reuse the same bolts, i did so when i had my V6 camaro and upgraded to Brembos.

you dont need to upgrade the master cylinder and you can get a dremmel and cut the dust shield on the back.

while you don't need to use new caliper bolts, they are torque to yield. I would not re use them on my car.

I did not replaced the MC when i installed my Brembo setup. I did buy new set of SS caliper bolts and SS lines. As for the rear dust shield, I did what many others have done. Trimmed it.

Do the brembos fit in the 18" LS wheels?

They will fit 18 and 19 but it depends on the shape of the wheel and offset. Not sure what your ls rims look like.
