If you’re looking for the best value in a high-performance brake kit for early Fieros, look no further. The West Coast Fiero 10-1/4″ Camaro Brake Kit is designed to provide superior stopping power and a properly functioning rear parking brake, utilizing proven GM heavy-duty brake components.
Unlike other kits on the market that come with 9.75″ rotors and unreliable line-lock parking brakes, this kit stands out with its integration of 10.25″ vented rotors and a GM built rear parking brake. The parking brake is conveniently engaged from your existing parking brake lever, providing a seamless transition and enhancing the overall functionality of your vehicle. This kit offers the braking system that the Fiero should have had from the beginning, improving both safety and performance.
One of the major advantages of this system is the increase in the piston diameter. The piston size has been increased to 2-1/2″ from the stock Fiero 2″ piston. This effectively doubles the clamping force of the caliper, providing a significant boost in stopping power. To accommodate this larger brake system, a vented rotor is included in the kit. The vented rotor is crucial as it helps dissipate the extra heat generated by the larger brake system, ensuring optimal performance and longevity of the components.
While there is an increase in unsprung weight due to the larger components, it is minimal and is vastly outweighed by the dramatic increase in stopping power. The handling of the car remains largely unaffected, ensuring that you can enjoy the improved braking performance without any noticeable impact on the car’s maneuverability.
Please note that this brake kit requires a minimum wheel diameter of 15″. This is to ensure that the larger brake components fit properly within the wheel and function as intended. This kit is designed with the user in mind, offering superior performance without compromising on usability or safety. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your Fiero is equipped with the best braking system available.
