C5 Corvette Brake Parts (1997-2004)
Power gains are but one piece of the performance equation - with bigger speed and improved handling comes the attendant need for some serious friction! Zip offers braking solutions for C5 Corvettes as simple as OE pad upgrades and as comprehensive as full on rotor,caliper and pad combos for dedicated track use.
Not sure to what extent you should upgrade your Corvette's brake system? Zip has you covered. A basic stage one upgrade would consist of a car set of Hawk Performance Brake Pads or Carbotech Performance Brake Pads and Wilwood EXP 600 brake fluid. Sounds good but not quite enough? Stage two goes a step further by adding Zip's two piece directional rotors into the mix. Still not there? A stage three upgrade would consist of a Wilwood 13" or 14" Corvette Big Brake Kits, which comes with drilled & slotted Corvette rotors,black or red 6 piston Corvette brake calipers, performance brake pads, stainless steel brake hoses and necessary hardware.
If stages 1-3 just aren't enough then a stage four upgrade is the answer for you. Stage four consists of a Wilwood W6AR Extreme front brake kit for aggressive street use and advanced club driving or a W6AR/ST Road Race front brake kit, which is recommended for competition use only.
