Default 00-03 brake upgrades

I was broseing through some catalogs my dad was part shoping through for his Camaro (1970 1/2 Z28 ). & I stumbled upon this. Its a 2 piston 13" brake upgrade. I have a code.... "SC101" & that should help you get a free catalog where I think they go into more detail about the brake kit.

Sweetness. Now all they need to do is make a lowering kit.

Cool, but it requires 18" wheel. I think stock is 17", right?

You could do this upgrade, keep your 17s, and save some money.

That upgrade has only been done on the W-body. What makes you so sure it can be done on an 00+ H-body?

00+ H-body uses the same caliper and bracket as the 97-03 W-body, should work out ok.

Depends what year. 97-03 Grand Prix only came with 11" brakes yet the 2000+ Impala came with 12" brakes but the calipers are all the same as is the hole spacing on the knuckle. It'* the caliper bracket that'* different, I should have been more clear in my earlier post.
