    Looks good. However I dont really understand why you spent $3500 on brakes when your engine is stock and your truck came with dual caliper brakes in the first place.

    Speaking of which, do you still have them? Interested in selling?

    I had terible brake fade with my old brakes. i am a very spirited driver and i can't even go down my favorite road without getting brake fade. also the size of your motor has nothing to do with the size of your brakes. good driving technique is to brake before you enter a turn and drive through it.

    yes i still have them. i do not have a parking brake for the rears though. i am intested in selling them but there are some others that are interested. i will let you know if i get an auction going.

    Will do. I think i am going to change the master cylinder. I prefer more of a front biased brake system. the blazer rear rotors are larger than the fronts, so i don't know how that is going to work out. the caliper is smaller though so it may balance its self out.

    Your brake fade could have been some air bubbles in lines, or a faulty wheel sensor.

    True, your motor has nothing to do w/ brakes, but why would you upgrade brakes that are almost identical to what came on ls1 camaro's and gto's when you are not doing anything radical to your engine? Whats the purpose of all that stopping power if your truck still hits the governor at 98 mph and takes a lifetime to get there? Just wondering...

    agreed... with this guy^

    and i didn't know that gto's came with 6 piston calipers and 14inch rotors. not only do you gain performance aspects, you also gain appearance points. a full brake looks much better that a shitty stock one. it also helps with rolling wieght of larger wheels. no matter how you put it, i still have made a great purchase. and i am glad i did it when i did because it is hard to get ahold of the guy that made them for me.

    oh yeah, i plan on running some autocross in a top heavy vehicle, until i pay it off and buy a car to build. e36 bmw or g35/37, undecided on how much i want to drive it around town the bmw would get a full race chassis.

    other than that i bled the brakes and the truck has done it since the day i bought it. i also don't see how a faulty sensor would create brake fade. when my abs kicks in they grab and let go, grab and let go, grab and let go...

    the brake fade is just me pressing on the pedal and the truck doesn't slow down like it did at the begining of the road.


    next question...

    brakes must be more intact for 4x4. they got the most activities but also same for racing cars.

    :nono:

    when it gets on the ground, I am still waiting on the ebrake clables and bracket.
    I also need to extend the rear brakeline, not sure if im gonna use braided ss or just make a new metal line.

    Those wheels are also only 18s, but i am itching to by some forged gunmetal 19s.

    sleepyhead what do you mean about brakes being more intact?
    the stock brackets are the same thickness and cast.
    these will be fine

    I think it's a good idea to be able to brake fast before you go fast, the other way around usually doesnt end so well.

    Blazer looks sweet man, i like the C6 ZO6 brakes. I am going to run the same setup on my Sonoma GT one day, unless they comeout with something better.

    The ebrake kits will be done here shortly and shipped to you.
