I've figured that I can put the kit together myself for less money. I've found raw calipers on rock auto for $150.00 each. I plan on powder coating the calipers red to match the rear caliper, so getting them in raw form seems to be a good idea. My question is has anyone else used theses A-1 Cardone Calipers?

Are you sure they have stock on these? When I was researching this mod earlier this year, there was no stock available.
I bought yellow calipers from Amazon for about $250 each and bead blasted and repainted.

It's looking like I'll be getting the Yellow calipers and have them redone in red. Those look great by the way!

E-Bay. I don't remember now who was selling them, but it's a regular company. A set comes with two each of three different sizes of Chevrolet and Brembo. Search the C5 threads for painting these calipers, that's how I found out about them.

When you get stainless steel lines, make sure you get the ZL1 kit and not the CTS-V kit. The rears won't fit if you get the CTS-V kit.

I found my calipers on ebay, rotors on brakerotorshop.com, lines/pads from tire rack. Sent the calipers to Mike the powdercoater and they look great.

The link to my upgrade:

I'm sorry but the brakes are not where you should go cheap for a mod. Especially if you drive hard or go to the track.

I agree. All of my questions have been answered and I will not be going with the raw caliper.

Do you understand that what we're talking about here are the same brake calipers that are on the ZL1?
I track my 1LE and switching to the 6 piston CTS-V calipers and with the stock Brembo pads I pulled my braking points in 200' at some places at Watkins Glen. Next time out I'll have Carbotech XP10s and XP8s.

This is not going cheap. This is just a very economical mod to get a great set of brakes.

I think he's referring to the rebuilt calipers I was asking about not the idea of the CTSV swap.
