    Thanks ZZ4 for the awsome idea. I finally got the whole set up but i used 13" corvette rotors and calipers instead.

    Wow, nice detailed info. I got a set of Brembo drilled rotors on the way...all I need are some brake pads....and maybe a set of stainless steel brake lines. Right now, my brakes suck and sqeek. I checked it out one day and I have no idea why its sqeeking....I got some padding left still but who knows...

    Old thread, but heres my deal... I want to go fast, handle well, hell drift if possible... But before i go big wheels and big HP i want to be able to stop. now i Already have the 98+ brakes cause its an 02 blazer, and i DONT want to spend 3500 just for brakes from baer. I dont understand all the technical mumbo jumbo about control arms and camber/caster yadda yadda unless explained thoughoughly. What would be my best bet to get some better handling outta my Blazer and stop faster? Where can I get some drilled/Slotted Rotors thatll fit stock and larger swaybars?

    Get a decent set of performance brake pads, then go from there.

    Just throwing on a set of rotors isn't gonna drop your 60-0 times, unless you've heated up the pads/rotors from repeated stops and your getting fade.

    Re: Update: Want better braking for your 2wd??

    Heres a quick question...you said in 98 they used new parts. I have a 96... if I buy 98 calipers with the dual pistons will they bolt right up to my 96?

    Im sure this has been covered...


    you need to swap the whole spindle assembly. You can't just bolt the rotors or calipers up to your stock spindles

    the good kind.















    j/k, its all limited to what you're able to spend on them really. You can get a $1200 Wilwood setup or a $350 LS1 Camaro setup and unless you're racing through the twisties, probably won't notice a difference

    Well I am a spirited driver, so I want good brakes, that can take alot of hard stops. Also want it the difference between slot and drilled brakes, and also which is better? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am slowing learning. Thanks.
