  1. I’ve remained quite about this issues for a while until I could get more info. While I’ve sold many brackets and had a ton of positive feedback, it bothers me someone wasn’t happy and got poor results. Well, it’s taken a while to get to the bottom of it but I believe I know the reason why Proatv13 had the issue he had. He explained how he bled his brakes and that he “didn’t know what a Tech 2 scan tool is”. This is a huge red flag. With modern day vehicles, if air gets trapped in the ABS pump, you can have the best brakes in the world but they will be mushy and soft if air is trapped in the lines. I’ve watched seasoned car guys chase their tails trying to fix the same exact problem not realizing their mistake. This is exactly why I specifically mentioned it in the how to I wrote. With a Tech2 or equivalent scan tool, the ABS pump can be cycled while bleeding the system. Skipping this crucial step can trap air bubbles in your system. To my knowledge nobody else has had this issue but if you have experienced anything similar to Proatv13 have your system bled with a Tech2 or equivalent scan tool.
  2. Email is best way to get a hold of me. I don’t get on here as often as I used to. [email protected]
  3. Pre-sale is closed but anyone looking for a set of brackets can email directly. [email protected]
  4. Pics from the how-to in the how-to section of the forum.
  5. As of right now, there is no exact date. The pre-sale is to help with the huge upfront investment I have to make in order to offer these brackets. When I have enough pre-sales to cover a good chunk I’ll stop pre-selling. Don’t have an exact date yet. Front brackets should be done from the machine shop early next week. Then off to anodizing shop. I’m looking into options for the rear brackets.
  6. Sorry for the late reply. I just noticed this thread. Z06 bracket pre-sale
  7. Some spindles are closer to factory mounting specs than others. McGaughy are way different than. Beltech are much closer but not exact.
  8. 11-14-2019 So it’s that time again ladies and gentleman. As many of you know I made and sold the adapter brackets to mount Z06 Corvette calipers on Silverado SS trucks using Baer disks. The first batch I made was almost 9 years ago. I’ve made more smaller batches along the way. Currently I am sold out of the adapter brackets. I was not planning on making any more due to more than a few reasons. For starters, all my contacts and hookups at machine shops have either moved on or changed fields. I will no longer be able to get any discounted rates for small batches of the machine work, the raw materials, hardware or anodizing. This means I will have to do one single large batch. That means I will have to put out more than $10,000 to make a batch. That is significantly more than what i paid years ago. Now I don't have anything close to enough to sink that much money into these brackets. But I have had more than a few people recently persistently asking about purchasing brackets. So to help offset the initial cost I will be offering them to anyone that purchases them before they are finished at a discounted price. Pre-sale price Front and rear $400 Front only $250 Rear only $200 After pre-sale price Front and rear $450 Front only $275 Rear only $225 Here is a link to the How-to I wrote for anyone not familiar with this upgrade. You can also contact me at [email protected] if you are not a member here. But I would highly suggest joining so you can be part of the forum/community. There are a lot of really good guys on here with a lot of helpful knowledge. Currently the front brackets are being made. I still have a limited number of rear brackets from the last run. More rear brackets will be made shortly after the current batch of front brackets are done. FYI, this very well could be my last so get them while you can and spread the word. If you refer anyone that buys a set of brackets and they mention your name, I’ll send you a few bucks for your time. 11-19-19 12-4-19 Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. So the forum went down for a bit but it’s back up. Had a few people panic. Don’t worry gentlemen. Even if the forum were to go away, you will all get tour parts. I’ve been selling these brackets for nearly a decade. Even when USPS busted open a box with two full sets and wouldn’t refund my money, I made sure the customer still got his. Anyway, front brackets are back from machine shop. Waiting on anodizing shop at this point. There is a bit of a back up due to a huge order ahead of me. They estimated late December. I’m currently working on getting rear brackets machined. Might be able to get them done before fronts are anodized, but don’t know for sure. 12-27-19 Rear brackets have been started !!! 1-10-20 Pre-sale is closed. Thank you to everyone for your patience. This forum is full of some really great people and a lot of great info. There were a couple of delays with the anodizing shop, but all the brackets sold during the pre-sale have shipped. If you missed out on the pre-sale, I still have more. Contact me [email protected] I will get back to you ASAP.
  9. I’m currently in the process of having more made. Should be done by the end of the month.
  10. As long as you are stick spindles, factory read disc and standard 10-bolt you should be fine. If you are factory rear drum, you will need to get the parts from a factory rear disc setup. 4wd or 2wd, doesn’t matter.
