Found another possibility for the front brake upgrade.

Over on the Blazer forum, I've read where some of the people there have the Corvette brake upgrade on the front of the S-10 Blazer. There's also someone there with an F body kit on the front. Since the Corvette brake upgrade is compatible with both the N body and the S-10 Blazer, that tells me that the Blazer and N body brakes are interchangeable. The advantage: two piston calipers. Just looked up prices, and for me to get a loaded setup including rotors including shipping, is just under $240. The vehicle I searched under was the 1999 Olds Bravada. The part numbers are the same for the Blazer, obviously.

Always important what kind of rim do you have to have for this, as I am still bound to my 15" OE wheels

I want to upgrade my brakes. Has anyone gone through with installing GP GXP front brakes? That is what I would be interested in doing.

I dont believe I saw it said for certain.
My question I never saw specifically answered.-
When using the Camaro set up 16" wheel MINIMUM? It would not clear my factory 15" wheels?- Can anyone say for certain?

For certain you will need 16" wheels. Firebirds and Camaro's that run 15's on the front are the small drag racing rims. Even then you need to make sure there will be clearance with the 16" wheels as some will not fit due to their bulky design.

It won't, even the stock 16" wheels are a close fit

shoot. I'll have to see how things go then. If *cough* C2 *cough* hadn't wimped out and brought wheels to homecoming there would no question about this.
The camaro calipers are dual piston correct?
