Looking at getting new rotors, calipers and pads for my Z. What size are the rotors on front and back? Also what do I look for in getting calipers? Is there a certain option the Z had?
Thanks
Luke

1991 Brakes

When I bought my ZR1 (April 2005) I replaced the brake pads a month after I bought it. It already had the cross drill/sloted rotors. The pads are still good sixty miles later. All my cars have cross drill/sloted rotors. The pads last longer & the cars stops better. My 2 cents on the subject.

All ZR-1s had J55 Standard on them. (so the bigger 13" brakes)

the rear brakes are the same on all corvettes 89-96. I forget the actual size

so the grandsport Calipers will work on your car without too much work

What I've done is:
Replaced Stock Rotors Front 13" and Rear 12" with Baer Eradispeed Plus slotted/cross drilled rotors of the same size.

Replaced stock front calipers with Grand Sport calipers, they are stronger, with less flex. Painted the rear calipers black. :laughing:

Replaced stock rubber brake lines with braided steel. Much less pedal mush.

I used Baer Sport Touring pads all around. I'm very happy with them. If they wear out I may change to Hawk (Spring Mountain Motorsports swears by them.)

Castrol SRF Synthetic Brake Fluid.

DRM brake bias spring.

Very little work, not a great deal of expense as opposed to going after market oversize, yet with a great deal of braking improvement.
