What are you wanting to do? Reduce weight and run a 15" front wheel? There is a thread in the suspension/brakes section. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=516371 im looking for a lightweight front setup also.

I have seen the MW stuff. I was looking to see whats out there in the aftermarket for drag brake kits. Xtreme Innovations also has a Wilwood bolt on drag brake kit.

Aerospace Components just released a lightweight front brake kit for the 5th Gen. They were running 30% off not too long ago. I paid like $750 total.

Caliper and rotor only weigh 16lbs TOTAL. I installed them a cpl months ago. Stopping power is good and you can def feel the weight difference.

15s fit up front no problem.
