These brackets are for 88 fieros. Use the stock calipers and C4 rotors front and rear. You will need the 88-95 front rotors from the corvette. These brackets rotate the caliper up so there are no problems when making a tight turn. 7075 Aluminum, powder coated black. Includes 4 centering rings and 2 left and 2 right brackets along with the required bolts. Also on some cars the lower control arm my rub the rotor, a little work with an angle grinder will fix this.  



$135 shipped

Do you include mounting hardware & instructions? I'll gladl pay more for a complete kit!
Any gotchas, like don't work with RD lowing ball joints.

I updated my original post to clarify the year for the rotors. 88-95 front rotors.You will also need four M12x1.75 bolts 30mm long. Use grade 10.9 or better. I can provide these bolts if need for another $5, most hardware stores carry them. I don't see a reason why lowering ball joints would bea problem. Buy the brackets and if you have a problem I can make you some that work or refund your money. Installation is straight froward, the brackets are engraved where they go on the car. The Side with the boss sticking up goes toward the rotor on all four corners.

This is the rear, you can see the red bracket in there. Sorry its dirty, lots of miles on them!

I'm going to say no the 16" wheel. I had 17" wheels at first and they just barely cleared.

I looked and couldn't find a picture of mine behind my 17's. I will post a picture of them behind my 18's as soon as I take one. Btw, your parts went out today.

Thx, I'll take you word for it on the 17" wheels. I haven't purchased yet but would rather have the 17" vs 18" up front.

Received my two sets and they look great!

NOSRAC...looking at these and comparing them to my existing set...17" rims should be fine.

Thanks guys! Good to hear you got them. Waiting on material to make more now, also working on 13" C5/6 rotors and caliper mounts now. They will be the same as these, 7075 high strength aluminum, one piece cnc cut and powder coated.

The C4 front rotors won't fit with lowering balljoints because the lower control arm will interfere with the rotor. Doesn't matter what caliper brackets you use.

Good info. Do you know if that also goes for "lowering" spindles also? I've got 1 1/2" "lowering" spindles from Ryane/Held/Arraut on my GT fronts. It seems the the geometry would be the same as for the lowering ball joints. Too bad. I do have the Ryane lower tubular A-arm. Perhaps that might allow them. Any info appreciated. Thanks.

What about lowering springs? I assumed some grinding on the lower A arm as suggested by FieroGuru on his brackets.

You may have to be the test mule on those spindles. I was wondering the same thing before I spent the $550 on lowering spindles with stock A arms.

I have several Sluppy parts on my Formula, including his 12" brackets, been running them for years with no issues.

I have lowering springs on all corners and had to grind a little bit on the drivers front... That was the only fitment issue at full lock. Nice to keep the e-brake cable too! 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.
