1984 Chevy Camaro Z28 Big Brake Kits - Short Stoppin' Z

Check out how to upgrade your muscle car with a big brake kit upgrade on a 1984 Chevy Camaro Z28 with Power Slot rotors and new brake line hoses.Much as we're fans of big power, we're also fans of big braking performance. We think it only makes sense that a car's ability to go very fast should be matched by its ability to stop very quickly. Big brake kits are certainly an effective way to improve a musclecar's stopping ability, and they look really cool when peeking out from behind the large-diameter wheels it takes to accommodate them. But does it necessarily take big brakes-along with big wheels and tires-to achieve big braking performance? That's the question we wanted to answer in this experiment, in which we outfitted our '84 Z28 with braided stainless brake hoses from Classic Tube, brake pads from Hawk Performance, and high-performance front rotors from Power Slot. And as you'll see, there are significant gains to be had within the confines of a stock braking system.
