It's actually a real SS not a regular cab:crazy:

After 2 years of having the vett calipers up front the drums had to go and this is the result. Still need to have the parking cables hooked up and new caliper bolts put on but thats small details.

Awesome man. Where is a good place to buy the kits to do this and how much did it run you in the end? Def looks worth it!!
Front was around 1500 and the rear 1300. Not sure any place to get them as a kit i had to piece it togheter except for the rear i got that from a guy that pieced everything togheter and changed his mind.

just what I was thinkin.... esp. with those trick clamps mounted up behind them.




You have to change around your proportioning valve, or get an adjustable one?
Noticeable difference in feel/performance?
the stock brake lines where re-used just cut and stuck a new fitting in and flared the ends, stock proportioning valve. I couldnt tell you right now ive only driven it 30 miles so far, once i have the new bolts on then i will break them in correctly.

Instead of changing to vette brakes all around, is there a disc set up just for the rears of an 08 that is compatible with the OEM front discs?
Yes, you can get the stock discs from another truck that came whit rear discs.

This is the parts that are needed, this is copy/pasted from what another member on sss.com posted and what i used as a check list to make sure i had everything (i reused my stock brake lines for a cleaner install):
parking brake cables; axle brake lines from an axle with stock disks, the baking plate, the parking brake assembly, rotors, calipers and caliper mounting brakets. This also requieres opening the dif and pulling the axles out.
