    Yes they are, from a 2010 listing
    I am still exploring other calipers that are better, but they are so wide on the outboard portion we would need new wheels for sure

    You might also want to look into the C5 Z06 calipers, which are a bit larger IIRC, and, more importantly, 996 911 calipers. I've heard of/seen guys with E36s running both, as they're large/similarly cheap

    There is no difference between a Base Corvette and z06 Calipers sir.

    I will look into the other ones you mentioned.

    Why did you go with vette calipers? Why not GT500? Just wanted to know, looks like great plan!
    better to do a burn-out than fade away

    Because that's not affordable, nor will it fit with a stock wheel.

    Brackets will be $140 shipped.

    Trying to locate a source for bolts.

    Up to $775 now. Cost can go down if we find cheaper calipers/brackets
    Working on it!

    $609 cheaper than buying a BAER kit

    Here is where I go for good bolts. They are local to me so I could pick them up if you are supplying the bolts with the brackets.

    Where do I pay? haha

    Do you use the original caliper bracket bolts on the new adapter bracket?

    I can get my hands on a set of 03 Cobra calipers. Could these be used? Or would it not be wreath the effort. Such as no more braking benefit, or the bracket would be too much trouble to modify.

    It was an honor to have
    my ASS kicked by you!

    Please clarify, you are not selling complete front brake kits and are only selling the brackets, is that correct?

    I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
