    brake up grade

    Hi there! My car is going to in the shop in march for a overhaul on the motor and i was looking to up grade my brakes. I was looking to put z06 calipers on. I know the front ones will work with a kit but what about the rear ones? Do i need a kit for those or with they just fit right on? Thanks for reading and helping!!

    im not sure if they but my thinking is if there on the vette they have to be good. Plus i dont want to spend alot of $$$ so z06 is the way to go.

    What do you need to convert the Z06 brakes? Do you just need that bracket? What work is involved of converting? I am brake illiterate I apologize Oh another question..Are you saying the rear Z06's will just slip right on without having to do anything?

    And yes, the Z06 rears are a direct fit

    uh.. no the Z06 calipers will fit but not the rotors... you need to change the whole parking brake assembly, to fit the rotors..
