Do yourself a favor and just buy the bolts from him. It is hardly cheaper than going to Fastenal and rooting around for the right stuff.



Thanks for the good words Blake! Glad to hear your brackets have held up in the long-term!! I'm slowly starring to make fiero parts again, planning on offering my version of the c5/c6 13" swap soon as well as the strut tower caps and hood strut kits.

I have a few sets available, send me a PM if interested.

Also to those that have bought a set. Let me know if your centering rings don't fit, I may have shipped you pre 88 rings by mistake!

Do you offer a 5x100 re drill on the corvette rotors?
I saw 2 front zinc plated C4 rotors on eBay for ~$80 shipped.

I can easily drill them but shipping costs would be a killer. Even with usps flat rate I can only get two rotors in a large box. And that's $13 for each box. Send me a PM and we can discuss.

I have a question, are these the same design you've sold in the past?
When I installed mine that I bought several years ago, I had to grind the
Inside of the caliper bridge for the rotor to not rub. Just wondering if these
new ones eliminate this problem.

Thanks

Tom,

Same design as I sold before. Using 7075 aluminum now, used steel in the past. 7075 is stronger than steel and way lighter.

Some people need to grind some don't, really varies between cars. The c4 rotors need to be from 88-95 fronts as the hat design of other years rubs.

Thx 4 all your help.


I bought the brackets from sluppy123 but mine are for my 85 not an 88. Mine are also C6 brakes but they have a 12" rotor so the clearances should be similar.

Full picture of brakes with wheel

How close they are to the spoke

How close they are to the inside of rim
http://i.imgur.com/FyKGRAH.jpg

I could not get my wheels balanced the normal way due to the weights hitting the caliper. Whatever the width of a .25oz weight is is too thick to fit between, so they are very close. Net every set of 17' rims will fit more than likely, I got lucky that the ones I had work just fine. Unless you have the rim in front of you to measure things, I would just buy an 18" rim just to be good.

Thanks for the pictures but thse brackets use the 12"c4 rotors and the stock 88 calipers. The brackets you have use the c5/c6 rotors and calipers. You said they were close but damn!! That looks tight!!

I'll take another set. I just picked up an 88 Formula yesterday and I might as well give it more stopping power.

Thx


These brackets look like the ones from FieroAddiction and if they are an exact copy, I was able to fit my 15" wheels. It only required removing about an 1/8" off the corner of the caliber bridges. No biggie !

$75 shipped



Are these still available?

I will be getting my formula in my shop in the next few weeks, I may try and develop something to mount the c5 stuff on the front, I may also try the rear. I have most of the rear parts sitting around from when I tried to put the on the rear of pre 88 cars.

Fieroguru use to make the 13 inch using the fiero calipers without any mods just brackets .... these had a dog bone shape maybe look up this old sale thread ... many are wanting these ... me included. I do have your 12 inch kit but behind 18's they still look small .... let me know .
