Will the same work for nbs? Also I read somewhere that nnbs front brakes are bigger than nbs cc brakes and are interchangeable. Has anyone done this?
I changed out to a 02 14SF that had the dual calipers on the rear and let me say the breaking still sucks, I am now changing out to a hydro breaking system because the dual caliper didn't fix my problem like I would have hoped. Dont get me wrong it does stop the truck but if there was a O shit moment I dont think it would stop me in time. Even changed out new master thinking it was bad and still sucks. All new rotors, calipers, and pads all the way around.I hope its cool to dig up this thread.
I have a rear end that has the single piston calipers. Are the duals so much better that it would be worth me buying new dual piston calipers instead of using working singles I have?
Mine was holding up fine, and then I did a Wilwood 16”/14” kit on it and now it’s awesome. I bought the kit for a NBS and it fit fine since the conversion on the rear was NBS and the fronts are the same except the brake hoses.Anyone else done this swap? Thinking about doing it to my 2011 since I’ll upgrade to dual pistons in the rear. Also how’s it holding up?
Thanks for the reply. I’m mostly looking to do this because I have drums in rears. Even tho I feel like my brakes work fine on my truck I hate the look of the drums in the rear so I came across this thread and they looked exactly what I wanted to do without have to spend a lot of money.Mine was holding up fine, and then I did a Wilwood 16”/14” kit on it and now it’s awesome.

Same setup I’m running on my 08 factory drum NNBS. Power stops good stuff.Okay so got all the parts I need except parking brakes. I’m not worried about that right now. Hopefully everything goes good. This will also be going on an NNBS and it’s stock drum brakes in the rear (which I hate with a passion) I got my backing plates from a 2001 Tahoe and everything else new. There were like 6 of them in the junkyard lol. I went with powerstop drilled/slotted rotors and pads because I did the front ones 2 weeks ago so I want them to match. Before this I wanted to do the littleshop MFG kit for the nnbs but those are single piston and are from like an 80something el derado which I didn’t like at all. So I’m going with this instead.
