Cool Anyone interested in LS1 front hubs, brake lines and caliper brackets GP?

I found someone that will actually respond to e-mals and will make the conversion hubs, brakelines and caliper brakets for converting 82-03 4x2 S-Series trucks / 78-88 G-body cars to LS1 style front brakes.

I have already sent him a set of Belltech lowering spindles for him to start fabricating the brackets. I'm working with him to see if we can't get whole kits made or if that's something I'll just end up getting parts from him and making myself.

If you are interested in any parts for converting stock to LS1 brakes, post it here and I'll get a GP started.

I'm not using Ed. I couldn't get him to respond to e-mails or PM's for over a month and frankly neither could anybody else recently it seems. I am using Scott of Big Brake Upgrade to make my stuff and will hopefully be a little more reliable.

These are also not the C5 or C6 brakes, they are LS1 PBR 12" brakes. They are being designed to fit the 82-03 stock 4x2 S-Series and 78-88 G-body spindles. This is not the 98 up blazer spindle conversion.



Examples of some of Scott's 3rd gen F-body conversion parts.

Thats too bad, because I've never had a problem getting an answer from him, granted it might be a day or two, but thats understandable in my book.

Are these cut down rotors? Or are they new parts? Would they push the wheels out? If so how much? I'd be interested. I already have the ebrake kit on order and I haven't started collecting parts for the front. Price?

that looks like a dead ringer for the 2102 brake set up from ed. the brackets are a little different, but other than that the same. both kits use turned down rotors. both ed's and scott's kits will push the front wheels out a bit IntheBatCave.

That can't be much more than what 3/8"- 1/2"? I could always get spacers for the rear to even things out. It would be cheaper that buying blazer parts, thats for sure.

Each hub comes pre-assembled with extra length wheel studs. Hubs are created from stock front rotors by removing the friction surfaces, and machining to close tolerances. I'm working on a GP price but Scott's standard price is $99 for the hubs and he still needs to make the prototype bracket and get it to his laser cutter before he can quote a price.
