LA1 Z24 is on a distinguished road
Default Hello, New member here..Lets talk brake upgrades

Hello everyone. My name'* Jay. I currently own a modded 91 Cavalier Z24. One of my mods is I'm running 92 Bonneville spindles, calipers, rotors and ball joints. The brakes are not as strong as I'd like them to be though. Are any of you guys running any brake parts from other GM or non GM cars as an 'upgrade' to the stockers?

Here'* a link to my registry entry on V6Z24.com

If you want them to be a bit beefier you can upgrade them further. Go to ZZPerformance and look at the brake upgrade.

Forgive my ignorance but I only see parts for the Grand Prix on that site. Are these parts between H and W bodies interchangable?

Some are, some are not. Send a Email and ask. I believe the brakes are the same though.

I adapted 00+ knuckes and adjustable W-Body struts to work with my 95.. This let me bolt up 98-02 F-body front calipers like the 00+ and 97+ W-Body guys do.
