I've had these V 6 pistons for a while now but haven't put them on due to other things I need first... like an engine rebuild. But this thread is really getting me antsy to get them on!

I got whole bunch of washers (some different thickness) and stacked them on the wheel studs. And played with this to see how many washers put the wheel in the right place and measured the total thickness of the washers.

Here's a question for you guys, I just got my rotors, calipers, and hoses on today after work. I kind of have a pig tail thing going with the hoses to keep them from hitting anything lock-to-lock. You guys have any issues with the line hitting your shock or lower arm when the steering is locked? Anything you guys are doing to prevent this or is it even an issue I should be worried about.

I took these the other day as I'm starting to finally mock my brakes up. Next week I'll start taking measurements to determine wheel spacer, possible caliper bolt shimming & etc.

I was told this morning that the C7 Z06 rotor may be used on our 4th gens with no modification- unlike the ZL1's, which need the hub bore enlarged. has anyone confirmed this?


Mockup details for this shoot-

-98-02 spindles with caliper bolt through-holes opened up to 9/16ths
-18x8.5 OE Wheels Z6 Z06 wheels
-12.4" C5 Vette rotor. I'm not ready to buy rotors yet, so using
these to help clearance.
-6 Piston CTSV
-No wheel spacer or caliper shims

Here are some from my build. First two pics compare the stock LT1, stock LS1, and the stock 5th gen SS brake rotors.

I would still like to know if anyone is doing anything special to keep their lines from rubbing on the shock and lower control arm

Looks awesome ^^^^^^.

Anybody know where you can get a Brembo sticker that would hide the V emblem?
