  • I'm started to look at brakes and wanted some opinions. I plan to do big brakes up front and SS lines and better pads on rear. Is this a good idea? What pads for rear?

  • Also, what is you experience will Wilwood and Brembo? Are both an easy install?

Never had the Brembo's on this car but I had them on my 96 and they were good. I have had Wilwood brakes on my 06 for almost 9 years now and they have been great. I think they are a little superior to the GT500 Brembo's, better rotor and caliper design.

Wow. Where did you get the black ones? I am leaning Wilwood now but don't want red calipers on my blue car.

The install was straight forward on the fronts but a little involved on the rears, as I had an early version that wasn't specifically made for our cars. I understand the rear install is much easier now. You can get the Wilwood's in black or red.
