The KORE3 ø355mm C6 Z06 Big-Brake Kit for the GM tall-spindle application adapts high-performance, high-quality, 6th generation (C6) Z06 Corvette brake components to GM tall-spindle equipped vehicles. Please refer to the KORE3 GM Big-brake Application Chart for details
regarding specific vehicle compatibility.
The C6 Z06 rotors measure ø355mm x 32mm thick (ø14.0" x 1.26") and provide higher brake torques and additional thermal mass than either the base C5/C6 or the C6 Z51 components, allowing for even more aggressive, sustained driving. Additionally, the directional or pillar vane design of the C6 Z06 rotors increases the overall cooling efficiency of the system and rigidity of the rotors, resulting in maximum braking performance and minimum brake fade.
The C6 Z06 front calipers are of a 6-piston, monobloc design with a patented pad-per-piston design such that each piston has it's own dedicated pad. This feature reduces the development of tapered pad wear commonly experienced by longer pads in similar applications. Due in part to the unique pad design, the calipers utilize cast-in bridge sections for maximum rigidity and overall stiffness resulting in improved pedal feel and pad wear.
There is excellent aftermarket support for C6 Z06 rotors and brake pads to suit nearly anybody's needs and/or budget. This ø355mm KORE3 big-brake kit is an easy upgrade from the base level ø325mm and ø340mm kits ands adds even more thermal capacity for those who push their cars up to and beyond the limits. Any GM tall-spindle equipped application running ø18" or larger wheels can benefit from the addition of this kit, whether you're grocery-getting, pro-touring, or a little bit of both.
- KORE3 GM Tall-Spindle Kit is designed for GM tall-spindles that use SET6 inner wheel bearings only, of which there are many variations, including the ABS applications such as the
1994-1996 Impala SS (see HD 5x5 kits). All tall-spindles are cast and the KORE3 brackets work with all all variations but the hubs will only work with SET6 inner wheel bearing versions. The outer wheel bearing differences are important to note when specifying
hubs to run
with this KORE3 big-brake conversion.
- Kit installation requires moderate, irreversible spindle modifications with basic metal fabrication tools. All necessary modifications are detailed in the instructions.
- Minimum ø18" wheels are required, however not
all ø18" wheels will fit. Please verify fitment prior to ordering using the appropriate KORE3 fitment template. Wheel fitment is the buyer's responsibilty. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your specific application or the proper use of the templates.
