    Brakes

    Hey guys! I'm looking doing the c5 front brake conversion to my 01 SS and I was wondering about rotors. It says the c5 are an inch bigger the the stock ls1 rotors so would you be able to run an aftermarket sloted ls1 rotor or would I have to get a c5 sloted rotor? Sorry if this was confusing. The car dosent see the track and I don't Autocross it. Its just a nice fun weekend toy. Just looking for better stopping is all. Thank you guys so much!

    You need to run the larger C5 brake rotor with the C5 brake conversion. When you look up brake rotors you need to find rotors for 97-04 Corvette applications.

    Ok I wasn't sure. I didn't want to buy rotors for my stock set up then turn around and buy c5 ones. Thank you!
