Upgrading Brakes on my V6
Hey all, some day I want to upgrade my brakes, there's several ways to do this.
But seeing that the v6 only comes with single piston calipers I need some discussion on how I should do this and as always I'm looking to do it on the cheap.
1. Buy a Drilled rotor kit and keep stock calipers. -- Cheap and easy.
2. Buy a used set of SS 4 piston calipers and discs from an SS owner that has upgraded. Would this be plausible? any SS owners out there looking to get rid of their old brakes? Maybe I could just get the SS calipers and then get driller rotors too.
3. Buy the SS or ZL1 brake upgrade kit from a GM parts dealer. But I imagine this will be expensive, any one have any idea?
4. Buy a complete aftermarket upgrade kit,, also expensive...
I think I might be happy with just the #1 upgrade but I would still only have the single piston calipers which feel pretty weak... #2 seems like my best option but how can I find all the parts I need? what do you experienced guys think? How can I do this on the cheap?
