    Took me a while to pull the trigger on these. Just felt weird buying caliper replacements for super cheap on a frame off build. Spend all this money on everything, lift it to the sky with 37s and have $30 calipers to stop it? Anyways it was $30 or $400 for these, since there wasnt much of a middle, i pulled the trigger. Here are before and after pics, i am pretty happy with it. IMG_9492.jpg IMG_9544.jpg

    Very nice! I put Wilwood's least expensive 4-piston calipers and 11.75" discs on the front of a 55 Chevy and absolutely loved them. Even with a manual master cylinder (also Wilwood) the car probably stopped better than 55s with cheap power brake conversions.
