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?

I believe I have seen a few people run the C5 DDs in 18x9.5s with this upgrade. Are you using a 12mm or a 15mm spacer?

So I installed the 5th gen camaro Brembo brakes back in 2010 ish. I bored out the caliper mount holes to fit the m14 bolts in each spindle and had to have a machine shop bore out the center hub bore as well. I got the brake lines from flybyn and haven't had any issues since. I had to run a 15mm spacer to clear the spokes on the wheels (I believe the wheels were a 56mm offset).

The other day I got a set of 6 piston Brembo setup supposedly from a CTS-V but they had "FISKER" on the rear 4 piston calipers. They fit right onto the spindle and are centered on the 5th gen SS rotor. The pads hang off the outside of the rotor by about 1/4". I am 90% sure I am going to go with a set of 12-15 Camaro ZL1 rotors as they are 14.6" vs the 14" SS. The only other issue was the flybyn brake lines are a little short with the brake line connection at the bottom of the 6piston vs the top on the 4 piston calipers.

Couldn't agree more, there was TONS of good info on the net that is now pretty much useless thanks to Photobuckets crap. That's why I post my pictures directly to the forum and I always keep them backed up on a portable hard drive.

Sorry fellas, I thought this was fixed as the other threads seem to be working now.
It looks like someone knows how to make the photos work so if anyone knows how feel free to pass along the info.

If they don't work in the next day or so I will attach them. Its just a pain as they are on my phone and the user interface for the phone is a pain.

I picked up the rotors from the machine shop on Friday. After paying the $152 and about shi++ing myself I test fit them. I have been running the old 5th gen rotors with the 6 pistons for the last few weeks with no problems. I ordered a set of new brake lines from FLYNBYE but he is backordered on a fitting for the longer brake lines so with his track record of taking his time hopefully these will be the exception and be here in the next week or so. I plan on getting new pads as I had to grind the stock ones down on the edge a little. Still not 100% sure on what pads I want to run so any suggestions you guys have let me know.
