Factory Installed 6-Piston Brembo Brakes on 2017 Silverado

Factory Installed 6-Piston Brembo Brakes on 2017 Silverado

Postby 07nnbs4x4 [OP] » May 12 2017, 9:53am

So I was at the dealer having normal service done on my truck and noticed a few new Silverados on the lot had Red Brembo brakes installed on them. I thought maybe it was a dealer installed package of some sort but when I talked to a salesman he said it is now an option, a $2,800 option at that, that can be ordered on the Silverados from the factory. It is fronts only and is a 6-Piston Caliper with 16.1" x 1.3" Rotors. Now these only fit 20" wheels but man they are huge. I took one for a test drive and man these things make a huge difference. I can see these being a nice option for towing 10,000 lbs with the 6.2 Max Tow 1500. Has anybody ordered a Silverado with these yet?

The Salesman said they are they same brake kit included with the ZL1 minus the Carbon Brake Rotors.

The Truck I test drove was a 2017 Crew Cab, 6.5' bed, LTZ 4x4 with the 6.2/Max Tow with a 11,700 lb tow rating and was fully optioned at $68,000. If only I had the spare change, if this exact truck was closer to $50k I probably would of bought it. What a beautiful, smooth riding truck, especially compared to my NNBS.

Rally Sport Truck, or RST for Tahoe and Suburban. you can piece the calipers and rotors together off Amazon and pay half or less what the dealer is charging.

How much does it throw off the brake balance though? I know in normal driving you'd never notice it but there is a reason proportioning valves are installed in the system. I wonder if that part is replaced as well...
