weighed each knuckle... stock is 10.6 pounds, modded n-body is exactly 4 pounds. so, a weight savings of around 6 pounds per wheel. thats pretty damn good.. right about the difference of forged vs cast wheels.
and FINALLY... after all my ideas, thoughts and wanting this done for so long.. its REAL!!! muahahaahahhahha
the knuckles took a lot of machining.. this will not be cheap. be planning on at least $100 a knuckle plus shipping if you send them to me.
i totally forgot you can use f-body calipers on these things. so, what does that mean? oh yes... f-body brake kits available lol and the sky is the limit.
look at around $400-$420 for this whole setup. spendy i know and for just a mere 12 pound weight savings BUT... think about that extra money you popped for forged wheels trying to save weight. think about how for every 100 pounds of UNSPRUNG weight you ditch its worth A LOT in a 1/4 mile. think about having a professional setup with more brake options than we could ever need. think about the option for a 6 piston, yes i said a 6 PISTON setup if ur heart so desires. this can make it happen WHILE keeping weight down.
here's what i have in mind for me F-body 11.75" wilwood DRAG setup for my n/a car. this setup should be WAY lighter than stock and be WAY bigger. will it last 100,000 miles and take abuse for daily driving? well who knows but i dont care, im in it for the weight savings, PERIOD. im hoping i can just order a j-body kit hat so no redilling will be necessary.
(brandon fetter, where the hell are you?!!?!?!?! this setup is right up ur alley!!!!)
