Anybody ever thing of swapping the crappy oem calipers with some from another gm vehicle?....Maybe even non gm?.....

I think my brakes suk, even with brand new carbon pads,
Then again I have 16 pistons total on the 240 so, that kinda spoiled me:raspberry....

But on a serious note, I'm really considering swapping my calipers from that of an hd gm truck....

My Story....On Brakes

Well here is my situation, I did some reading looking to up-grade my OEM Brakes on my 2004 TB EXT. LS V-8. So I looked towards cross-drilled and slotted rotors using Ceramic pads... and doing a rebuild of the calipers and adding stainless brake hoses and better brake fluid, And rebuilding the E-Brake.

So I looked around....found some sites like www.buybrakes.com and www.brakeplanet.com So what I'm leaning towards is the formentioned upgrade. Looked at SBBC and quite frankly, I rather put that $$$$$$$$ towards a vacation with a woman on a beach....in Mexico. SBBC is for the members who have a true need for some SPEED. Been there done that...

Let me know how your upgrade goes...:)
