SS front brake question/swap

Recommended Posts

My truck is needing front brakes. I would like to change to something better than stock. Does the SS come with dual piston calipers on the front? I'm not sure what I have yet on mine as I took it to the tire shop to have winter tires put on it. I also plan on changing the rotors if needed if they are too small. Has anyone else that has done front brake conversions on these trucks know if the SS calipers & rotors are compatible with mine?

I see a ZO6 conversion too. What is needed for that conversion? Thanks for any help here.

A good upgrade is the 2007+ NNBS front brake setup, just ask the Rotors, Calipers and Mounting brackets for a 2007 Tahoe. They are 13" vs the stock 12". I did the upgrade on my truck and it stops great.

You can also look into the SSBC big brake kit for it. They are 14" fronts and rears with the required relocation brackets for both. I have them on mine and are very satisfied with them. They use the stock calipers BTW so there isn't a need to bleed the brakes. I can try to dig up the part number I had, but they also have a kit for the single piston rear caliper trucks as well.

You could also go with the powerslot 14" rotor upgrade. The supply a bracket that alows you to use your stock caliper with the larger rotor.

Look for a front brake setup from an '05-1/2+ RWD SSS, 13" front rotors and dual piston PBR2 calipers......

Back to this guy's Question.

 

Questions:

 

#1- If I find a 03-06 Silverado SS AWD, can I just use the rear wheel caliper & bracket and mount to the front of the truck. It would it bolt right up?

 

#2 - If I decide to buy the caliper and bracket from a 07 Tahoe (Which other vehicle will work?), should I buy the rear of front caliper & bracket?

 

If option #1 works, it will help keep the Silverado SS more original

#1 no, rear brakes are totally different from fronts.

 

#2 any 05 up Sierra/silverado with rear drums, or 07 up full size suv
