Just a couple questions. Are you looking to just change the rotors and calipers? Do you already have a set that you're looking at or are you going to try to find some? First you can probably find better rotors/calipers for about the same price or a little more than the SS ones if you don't already have some you're looking at. Second the only things you need to make sure of are that your rims are going to clear the size rotor that you will be switching to. A lot of time you can go on any site that sells brake upgrades and chose the "big brake" upgrade option to see if it will fit your vehicle. If the SS brakes are in fact larger then you will have to make sure that your rim will clear them. I'll research exactly what is used on the SS but I don't believe they are larger and should fit fine. I think they are just slotted and have a different caliper.
The fool learns not from the wise man, but the wise man from the fool.

Hey thanks for that, I was just looking to see if it would be cheaper to use the disc brake system from the SS, rather than getting the big brakes kit...I knew of a guy who had a wrecked SS so thats why I was wondering....Good to See a Fellow North Dakotan on here though...4.8L Vortec | 6inch Lift | 35'' BFG ALL TERRAINS | K&N Intake | AirRaid Throttle Body Space | 3inch straight pipe dumped at rear axle | BlackBear Tuned | 2 13in JL Audio Subs | 1000watt HD amp, 2.9 cap | Kenwood Dble Din | Gibson Hi Flo Cats | HIDs Hi/Los 55watt 8000k |4.56 gears |
