In the thirteen years that F-bodies have been out of production, the automotive world has evolved substantially. No longer saddled with subpar braking systems, today’s performance cars more often than not come equipped with huge name brand binders.
Although the OEM brakes in the LS1 F-cars were decent performance for their time, and are still considered to be a nice budget brake upgrade for much older vehicles, they leave a lot to be desired to go toe-to-toe with even a 5th-gen Camaro SS. Luckily, we have the aftermarket.
Wilwood Disc Brakes Announces New Road Race Brake Kits for 1998-2002 Camaro and Firebird
Wilwood Disc Brakes has configured two new front disc brake kits for 1998-2002 Camaros and Firebirds, or 1993-97 cars that have been upgraded with 1998-02 spindles. Four piston forged Superlite 4R/ST nickel finish Quick-Silver calipers, PolyMatrix race pads, and two-piece Spec 37 alloy 13.06” directional vane rotors, are combined in these easy bolt-on kits to meet rules in NASA’s Camaro/Mustang Challenge, American Iron, American Iron Express, and other similar sanctions using 17” or larger wheels. The calipers are volume matched to original equipment power brake system output, and can easily be matched to common master cylinder sizes on manual balance bar pedals.
Kits include braided stainless steel flex lines, radial mount caliper brackets, and all the necessary hardware to complete the installation.
M.S.R.P. starts at $2,170.00.
