What's in the Box

Info

If you are using 1978-88 GM Metric style brake calipers your choices of piston sizes are pretty much limited to 2-1/2". This isn't bad unless you want to 'tune' your braking by using different size calipers front to rear. By using a larger 2-3/4" piston you will increase the braking force at a wheel over a wheel using a smaller piston.

Bleeder and inlet are both 10mm-1.5 inlet allowing the caliper to be used on either side. Plus, these calipers have been ground smooth to make them easier to paint.

Includes pads and hardware. Sold as EACH.

  • 20% increase in stopping power over stock calipers
  • Can used on the left and right sides
  • Extra ribs have been added internally while unnecessary weight was removed
  • Lighter, stronger, has more stopping power than OEM calipers
  • Each caliper includes:
    • brake pads
    • clips
    • slide pins
    • banjo bolt
    • washers
    • bleeder screw

Notes

  1. Can be configured to be used as left or right.
  2. Has a 2.75 inch bore.
  3. Uses the popular “154” (Chevrolet 78-88 mid size, 83-02 S10) brake pad.
  4. A direct replacement for the “4125/26” (Chevrolet 1978-88 mid size, 1983-02 S10) calipers.
  5. The slide bolt center to center spacing is 5.5"

These calipers are mid size GM calipers used on many different rotor diameters thru Speedway and other suppliers. The brackets that retain the calipers need to match the rotor diameter requirements. This can be used with 9.25" to 11.75" rotors

Speedway part number 91031010. These come with a standard brake pad, intended for use on stock type rotors. You can use these on a drilled and slotted rotor, but you may get dust build up and or squeaking after some time. I would recommend using whatever the manufacturer of the rotors suggests, which is usually a high performance ceramic type pad.

You inquired about our big bore caliper under part number 91031040 and this caliper is designed to work with the standard 1.00 to 1.10 thick rotor. To use on a thinner rotor may require the use of a pad spacer to achieve desired braking. We also offer a Wilwood caliper with 2.75 bore, a standard GM Metric caliper with same bore, and a light weight metric caliper with same bore if so desired.
