The Best C4 Corvette Brake Upgrades from Zip

Looking for a C4 Corvette brake upgrade? Zip can help!

Zip recommends Wilwood Superlite Brake Kits for 1984-1996 Corvettes.   The Superlite 6 Big Brake Kits are specifically engineered for your C4 Corvette. Billet Superlite 6 piston calipers, BP-10 brake pads, machined aluminum hats, and 2-piece GT brake rotors exemplify award winning style and provide the ultimate in Big Brake stopping power.

The Billet Superlite 6 piston calipers are pure performance featuring a fully CNC machined billet body with closed end bridges and a reinforced bridge to body transition. Center bridge body bolts provide additional strength and positive retention of the pads. These elements combine as an ultra-rigid body that resists separation and deflection under high load. The SL6 generates high clamping force and balanced pad loading from a race-proven differential bore six-piston configuration. Staggered piston sizes distribute pressure to compensate for the natural variances in temperature, load, and wear rate that occur over the length of the pad. 

Pad life is extended and performance is measurably improved. 

Stainless steel pistons are used for their low heat transfer properties and resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel bridge wear plates eliminate pad gouging and extend the service life of the caliper. The spring-loaded action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad rattle and dampens the vibration harmonics that contribute to pad squeal. Fluid tubes are dampened to eliminate vibration stress and recess mounted for protection from track debris. SL6 calipers bear are finished in a high luster black anodized finish. BP-10 brake pads are a medium friction compound with the low noise and low dust of a street performance compound but the increased friction characteristics of a semi-metallic race compound.

The GT aluminum hats are lightweight and strong to manage the exceptional brake torque generated by the SL6 Big Brake system. The hats are specially designed for use on OE hubs without modifications or interference to the suspension or ABS components. Black anodized finish to prevent corrosion and enhance the overall appearance of the complete package.

Large diameter vented iron rotors provide substantial increases in cooling and stopping power over small diameter OE rotors. All Wilwood rotors are manufactured from premium grade, long grain carbon iron to provide long wear with high thermal stability and resistance to distortion. The superior heat absorption and dissipation qualities of a directional vane iron rotor are essential to preventing heat fade and realizing the longest service life from the pads and rotors. The GT rotor kits offer the high-tech look and improved performance of a directional face slot pattern. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the venting and cleaning action of the slots will reduce pad glaze, dissipate surface heat, and minimize irregular pad build-up on the rotor faces. The results are smoother engagement with improved consistency and response at the pedal. Every GT rotor is treated with a silver zinc wash to reduce corrosion on the areas of the rotor not kept clean by pad contact.

Aluminum caliper mount brackets are lightweight and strong. Each bracket is CNC machined for precise fit on each specific spindle. Grade 8 strength or higher nuts, bolts, studs, washers, and alignment shims are included with each kit.
