Does your Corvette need a brake caliper upgrade? These Wilwood D8-6 brake calipers are direct bolt-on replacements for the OE calipers on all 1965-82 Corvettes. Forged billet aluminum bodies, stainless steel pistons, and high-temperature seals put an end to the rust, bore pitting, and seal failures that plague the OE calipers. Wilwood D8-6 brake calipers provide low-maintenance performance, a significant weight savings, high-temperature reliability, and the added benefit of 6-piston pad clamping power. D8-6 calipers mount in the stock location over stock rotors, use the original-style D8 brake pads, and fit snugly inside most '67 or newer production wheels. Some wheels, including the 1965-66 OE "JK" code steel wheels and a few aftermarket replica alloy wheels, will require a 3/16 in. or wider wheel spacer for clearance. These Wilwood D8-6 brake calipers are sure to give your Corvette outstanding braking capabilities over the OE calipers.

Bought this kit for my 1981 C3 Vette. Product is well made and installed without any issues. I also purchased Wilwood’s replacement rotors to have everything brand new. I wasn’t interested in spending extra money for the powder coated black or red calipers. Seriously, does the color really make it perform Better? I like the neutral silver/clear coat look. Not flashy and they work. All parts fit perfectly. The 6 piston calipersnare dramatically better at slowing and stopping the car. Very satisfied with Wilwood products. I plan to purchase the rear 4 piston kit and rotors soon to match the system. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking for a good upgrade from the old stock (leaky) brake calipers. Cheers! ...read more

Clear Finish is a silver color

I ordered these along with the D8-4 rears for my 79 C3. The D8-6 fronts that showed up at my house is a bright silver in color compared to the D8-4 rears that showed up at the same time. Drastically different in color. Be aware of this if you're expecting them to match. I was expecting a slight color difference but this is night and day.

These are extremely well made, fit the same as the original equipment. No modification for after market wheels was needed, The increase in stopping power is significant, You can have a fast car but if you cant stop what good is it. These will stop it.
