This SLC56 replacement front caliper kit from Wilwood is engineered to be a high performance street and custom replacement kit for Corvettes and hot rods using Corvette suspension.

This caliper kit is a direct bolt-on replacement for the OE calipers on all models of 1997-2004 C5's and all 2005-2013 base model C6's using the existing 12.8" diameter OE dimension front rotors.
