Re: Brake Speculation

wheel diameter isn't always the issue with the 6-piston/370 brakes - it CAN be the wheel choice does not provide clearance on the front/outboard face of the caliper. Hope you are lucky with the 20" Camaro wheels!

The OEM wheels used with the ZL1 were specific to that model.

Re: 3.27 differential

I think the issue is finding the V6 MT diff, as it was not nearly as common as SS AT, and its not clear if all V6 MT were limited slip.

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

Are you trying to install Brembo calipers or are you just replacing stock parts? Your last line about will 9c1 pads work makes me think you are talking about the Brembo upgrade as the title of this thread suggests, but if so why would you order the stock PPV rotors? Migs, the writeup addresses this...

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

I checked the rotors I had in stock, and they appear to be the Camaro/Regal GS rotors for the Brembo brakes, and not replacement 9C1 rotors, as I had hoped. I checked a GM site for PPV rotors, and got a GM P/N. Then, wondering about pricing and availability locally, I checked a local parts house li...

Re: 3.27 differential

This is covered in several other posts, but here's the short version: There are 2 primary options for 3.27/LSD diff & housing. 1. Chevy SS sedan or G8 GXP with A6 trans - same diff housing & limited slip as PPV - 210mm (8.3") ring gear 2. Gen 5 Camaro SS (V8) with A6 trans - limited slip is standard...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

The first photo you posted is right side of the car, showing outer bleed port in correct (upper) position, and the second photo, while not a really clear view, does look like there is a valve with rubber cap. This would be the right side caliper viewed from inboard, looking upward.

Is this correct?

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

Something is hinky, or I haven't been paying attention.....still believe there needs to be an inboard bleeder. Is the photo showing top or bottom? Is there a hex plug in the inboard upper position? The reference photo from Rock Auto (Cardone reman caliper) shows a bleeder on both sides. Did you buy ...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

There MUST be a bleeder on the inboard side of that caliper - get that camera up inside the wheel opening and show us! https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=8001960&cc=3353478&jsn=458 Scroll through the 4 pictures in the link (same photo source I posted earlier) - that's the Cardone caliper yo...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

There you go--that's the Gen6 Camaro caliper for 345mm rotor--definitely has a bleeder on the inboard side of the caliper body.
