    caliper pin kit if the calipers didn't come with it

    boom and done it is that simple. If you get the calipers pads and rotors used you can do this super cheap.

    Hell check this out the pin kit and the pair of brembos for just under $300 that is a great deal since I paid $120 for the pin kit alone from the dealer.

    I don't know why but for some reason, I thought you had 6 piston calipers.

    Some day I will but for those you need to modify the spindle which takes away the simplicity of the swap that I wanted. Eventually I'll have c6 z06 brakes front and rear calipers and all.

    The Brembos on the 5th Gen Camaro fit with the correct bracket with no modifying the spindle. The biggest issue is making sure you have large enough wheels and correct offset to fit them. My buddy did it to his WS6. They are huge, make the C5 calibers look small.
