Been kicking around the idea for awhile now and decided to go ahead and go through with it. Im going to get a set of Front z06 calipers, But which brackets do I need to locate? Im guessing Fbody ones will work. After that all I will need is the correct banjo bolt, pad, longer SS lines like the FBody needs, and a nice set of rotors?

Am I missing anything? These should clear the stock 04 SS rims im guessing.

Thanks

Yes, you need the F-Body brackets (drilled and tapped for the Impala bolts)

You need the Banjo bolts and crush washers for the C5, pads for the C5, rotors for the Impala, and lines for the Impala

Just an FYI, C5 Z06 calipers are the same as regular C5 calipers, they are just powdercoated red... but are an upgrade over the F-Body LS1 calipers

Thanks BBE. Maybe I will just search for the regular C5 calipers to see if there is much of a price differance. I can paint them myself for X amount of money.

Other people have done it and it's the same swap as the FBody swap... it'll go fine
