Wilwood SLC56 Front Caliper Kit Black Corvette All C5 / Base C6 1997-2013
SLC56 front calipers are engineered as a high performance street and custom replacement for Corvettes and hot rods using Corvette suspension.
These kits combine the high-tech styling and superior performance of the SLC56 calipers with the positive response, long wear, high fade resistance, and easy clean properties of the BP-10 compound Smart Pads.
These kits are a direct bolt-on replacement for the OE calipers on all models of the C5 from 1997 to 2004, and all base model C6's from 2005 to 2013 using the existing 12.8" diameter OE dimension front rotors. The calipers attach directly to the Corvette spindle without the need for brackets or adapters and accept all types of OE banjo bolt style brake hoses.
While only new crush washer for the brake lines are needed, we HIGHLY suggest upgrading your brake lines at the same time. The reason for this is to eliminate and "spongey" feeling in the pedal due to slight expansion on the rubber hose lines in the system under pressure. The snip below is directly from Wilwoods manual:
Note: This kit is special order since red is by far more popular between the stock color options. Black kits are shipped directly from Wilwood.
