2019+ GM Truck Front Brake Calipers (PAIR) - MILLED
These calipers have been CNC face milled to remove the OEM casting bump from the face of the caliper. This increases wheel clearance at the back of the spokes which is sometimes a concern on the 1999-2013 GM truck application depending on wheel selection.
NOTE: These calipers will need to be painted or clear coated in order to prevent surface corrosion/oxidation.
**IMPORTANT NOTICE** - These calipers have been altered from their original form and are no longer certified as an OEM part by DOT/NHTSA (Department of Transportation/National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). As such, they are not intended for street use in accordance with federal safety standards. Any modification to brake components, including milling caliper castings, always results in an inherently increased risk of failure. While we have never experienced a failure, nor have we ever heard of a failure resulting from milling the face of these calipers, it does not mean that it's impossible for a failure to occur. By purchasing these components, the buyer agrees to assume all risk and responsibility for their installation and use and agrees to indemnify Glenn's Auto Performance against any potential claim or loss arising from any failure of these components up to and including property damage, bodily injury, or death to themselves or others.
The 2019+ front brake conversion is quickly becoming a popular "budget big brake upgrade" for 1999-2013 GM trucks (1500 ONLY).
In addition to the calipers, pads, rotors, and a shim set will be required to complete the upgrade. Shims are not supplied, however, several 9/16" washers can be used to center the caliper on the rotor when being installed on 1999-2013 spindles (typically 1-2 per mounting bolt are usually required).
IMPORTANT FITMENT NOTE: These calipers require at least 18" wheels (in most cases) and wheel fitment is hit-or-miss due to clearance at the rear of the spoke faces and center hub of wheel. Wheel spacers may be required depending on wheel model being used.
PowerStop rotors are drilled and slotted.
