Upgrading G Body Front Brakes

This is how I upgraded the front brakes on my big block powered 1986 Monte Carlo SS without breaking the bank.At the same time,I also added all new inner & outer wheel bearings & seals.Here is a list of parts I used;
US Brake Oversize Metric Calipers # 9001 & 9002
Summit Racing Extreme Performance Crossdrilled & Slotted Rotors # SUM-BR-62013 R&L
Hawk HPS Front Brake Pads HB119F-594
Russell Street Legal Braided Brake Lines # 692100
Heres my pictures
This picture shows the difference in the diameter between old & new

This upgrade made a big difference in braking power as compared to the stock brakes.The rotors are stock size,and all stock parts will bolt on in place of these aftermarket parts.At the time,this upgrade cost me approximately $ 600.00.This was including new bearings & seals.Note:These were all Brand New Parts.
