N-Body brake upgrade: F-body front calipers


Recommended Posts

Alright, one of my projects which I want to undertake is the F-body front caliper upgrade. I've been researching it more on GAGT.com, but decided to get opinions needed over here.

THESE ARE THE 98-02 F-BODY CALIPERS

Now, the swap is pretty much straight forward. The F-body calipers bolt right up to the N-body's spindle, and I have to use 00-05 W-body Impala rotors. The heatshield in the back may have to be modified/trimmed. The downside, my 16" Chrometechs will have to be ground down on the backside to clear the calipers (The plastic chrome face backing extends out a bit from the back.

Now, I've never disconnected calipers before. Obvious things:

1) I need to pinch the rubber hoses to minimize fluid loss

2) Brakes will have to be bled afterwards.

The N-body brake hoses will bolt right up to the F-body calipers (as I've been told) so far, this is looking good, and minimal rigging work.

Any advice I should heed?
