I was at the Pick-A-Part today because I was checking up on a 88 Fiero I saw in their database that ended up being a Formula with a GT nose, thing had Wilwood stickers on it and after looking, I noticed the rotors on the front and back were removed along with the rear calipers, however the front calipers were still hanging on by the brake lines and there was what looked like a Wilwood W symbol on the back of the Calipers, I didn't know they made a set for the 88 or is it possible there were adapters used, was thinking about grabbing them up but they were in rough shape and wasn't sure if they were any better or worse than the 88 stock calipers. Any info or thoughts, would be appreciated just wondering if they are worth going back for.

I have Wilwood brakes and the stopping is a lot better!... They are 4 piston instead of stock but they do use different brackets for the bigger rotors I have. I would take the brackets also from the pick-a-part car just in case they differ from stock

Thanks unboundmo for your response and photo, unfortunately the brackets were already long gone, just curious how much were the Wilwood brakes for the 88? Do you know if anyone still sells them? I couldn't find them on their site. Do you know if they are actually from another car?

Yeah, I already pulled the front hubs off that car, My friend pulled the back calipers, The willwood stickers are just that, stickers. Along with the flame stickers down the trim.
