    LS1 to LT1 brake conversion

    i got a set of 15x10 wheels and want to get them to fit. I ground down the driver side but i ground through the bracket to the slide pin and ground a small hole in the caliper itself. I was wondering about swaping the brakes to LT1. I was told that would help make the wheels fit. What all do you have to change to swap out to the LT1 brakes?

    ya they are my drag wheels. i heard that the LT1 brakes are smaller in the rear and will allow the wheels to fit.

    i dunno, lt1 brakes use a different parking brake assembly that is not in the hub of the rotor but is actually built into the caliper if i am not mistaken. just get different wheels bro, some that will fit correctly
