I am pondering converting my drums to C4 corvette front discs setup. Being the cheapy that I am, I don't need the look of the corvette calipers, just so that they will work with the C4 rotors. Are the calipers interchangeable between the corvette and say the ones from 95 camaro LT1? Thanks -John

John,

I don't have the answer to your question, but I have a set of '94 Z28 caliper in my basement. And so if you need any photos, measurements let me know.

John,
If you are talking about '93-'97 front calipers off of F-bodies and C4 front calipers than no, they are not the same.

John,
Here are some cars that use the C4 style PBR's:

</font>
  • '94-'03 Ford Cobra</font>
  • '01 Bullitt Mustang</font>
  • '03 Ford Mach 1</font>
I would really like to see someone use the '99+ Mustang LX/GT PBR's for a stock spindle/big brake swap as these have bigger pistons than even the C5 calipers. This would definitely give Baer a serious run for their money with their stock spindle 15" wheel setup that they charge $1,000 for
