Like most Gbody's once you start getting some power built up you notice the brakes are no where near what they need to be. We have sold several of these kits and installed them over the years as well. Not every Gbody Has a hydroboost like the 84 to early 85 Grand Nationals. The mid 85 thru 87 Turbo Buick's had an electric power master which is great when properly maintained but not exactly inexpensive. So a lot of our customers have gone to vacuum brakes. I'm sure you have realized boost and no vacuum is not a lot of fun and could be very dangerous.
So now we are focusing on all The Gbody's whether you have a hydro boost, power master or vacuum brakes. This little set up has worked for a lot of our customers.
This is what the kit contains:
* 2 Long brake shoes with a medium strength pad. Not too soft where it will wear out on every day street use but soft enough to help with braking.
* 2 GM AC Delco S-10 wheel cylinders. They are not just off a regular S-10. They come with a larger bore and higher pressure rating which now gives the maximum pressure applied to your new longer softer brake shoes.
*3 Stainless steel Brake lines. Your factory rubber units will expand before applying pressure to your caliper or wheel cylinders causing a braking delay. This reduces that from happening and gives the initial brake pressure to the caliper or wheel cylinder.
This will not fix bad brakes. If your brake line or wheel cylinders are leaking, new replacements will fix this. If your brake shoes are worn out this will fix that problem too. However, if your power master failed this will not fix your problem.
This kit will enhance any stock brake system currently used on a Gbody. This is not a new idea and has been around for a while. This is just a quick easy kit to improve stopping distances and holding power on your Gbody.
We have upgraded front calipers, cross drilled & slotted rotors, aluminum brake drums as another & additional upgrades. If you are making serious horse power and torque, check out our full line of Baer Brakes. This kit is for the customer who just needs to increase what he has over stock while being on a tight budget.
