CPP Big Brake Kit has arrived...

The first of three orders has arrived. I received my CPP Big Brake Kit on Friday (8/2). I will be installing once I receive the RideTech LII Coilover suspension and Coys 18f/20r Rims/tires.

I'll post some pics of the kit this afternoon. Installation should occur in the next 3 weeks, whenever I get a few days.

Overall, the kit was well packaged and is complete. The only thing I didn't like was the powder coating job they did.. for $120 I could have gotten them done locally with better results... very minor issue IMO

Please let me know what you think of the RideTech Coilovers. I was looking at their Stage 1 kit as it looks like a good setup and also means I don't need to go to a number of different suppliers.

Pics coming soon

Sorry didn't get a chance to post pics last night, fell asleep on the couch

Yeah, going with Ridetech for that same reason. FYI The level II is only $200 more, has more adjustability and can be tuned from inside the car... not sure, but for $50 more a corner, why not

It should be here in a week or two.

Gents,

I ordered the level 2 for my 65 SS build. Can't wait to see how it handles. I'm looking for a good 4 wheel power disc brake kit now.

So far I am loving my Level 2 kit and CPP Big Brakes. Night and day difference, so smooth, yet handles way better than I imagined it would. If you do any aftermarket suspension mod or upgrade.. make sure you seriously consider the Ridetech products... simply amazing. Its a bit pricey, but you def. get what you pay for.
