2010+ Corvette Z06 / Camaro SS/ CTS-V 4 Piston Calipers and 15in Rotors.

Did this on my second gen, it should work the same for you 3rd gen guys. I did this last year.

It is very simple, no fabrication required except extending the lower strut bold hole.. I am waiting for new chevrolet brembo calipers to come it. If you did the big brake swap it is pretty much the same. You need 2000+ Bonneville knuckles/ spindles and that it then you can run any of the calipers mentioned above. You just need the calipers brackets and the calipers bolts because they are longer than the stock one. Also the 2000+ Bonneville are aluminum. I actually did this and then I realized the people were doing over at the Bonneville pro forum. I had corvette dual piston calipers never new I could use the 4 piston ones. I will add some pictures once they come in and the insurance company decides weather or not they are totaling my car.

Here is a tutorial I found:
http://www.bonnevillepro.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=14708

These are the calipers I ordered


I also ordered a set of 2010 gt500 rotors I think they were 14in x 1.25.
I will take pictures once I figure out why I have clunk in the front end when I turn the wheel. Right now the car is ripped apart just figured I would fill you guys in.

Sounds cool, curious to see what's causing your issue with the clunk

My front mount was welded at the wrong angle. I don't rememberif that post was before or after I sheered all the bearings of my cv axle pulling out my driveway lol.

I will get pictures soon. My car has been in pieces since I did this. I had it done for maybe 2 hours then ripped the car apart to turbo it and redue the interior. It is the same as the N/W/F body swap except you used 00+ bonneville knuckles/spindles instead of 99 or lower. That is the only difference that allows you to run bigger calipers. Also I grounded down the front and rear of my calipers to fit my 17in rims. If you have 18s you should not have a problem. I did this on a 2nd gen but it should work for you 3rd gen guys. My 3rd gen only has rims rest is stock.

Here is the tutorial I used to fit the calipers in my 17in rims. Also, my pictures won't really be any different then the ones in the tutorial. You are basically
using the same parts as in the tutorials just on a different car.

Would do this in a heartbeat if I knew they would fit 17's

I posted a link to how to make them work with 17in rims. As long as the offset is correct and they are not too thick of a rim they should clear.

I doubt camaro rear calipers will bolt up since the camaro is rwd. Also there is a secret malibu control arm swap grand am owners do. It is suppose to be amazing but I could never find info on it. Its kind of like how we swap grand am control arms.

The rear control arm swap is from a W-Body, but the information I've seen is not very clear as to the modification necessary.

I actually designed solid aluminum ones that I planned on making for mine, but I haven't tackled the bushing situation.

Ok guys, iv been doing A lot of research on the front and mainly making this work on the rear. A lot of this idea has came from the w-body forums, but i have put together a partial spreadsheet of the info on this, let me know what you guys think so far.
