The 4-wheel disc brake upgrade (Corvette style 4-piston calipers for both front and rear) was offered on the 1968 Camaro as a "Heavy Duty Service" package sold through the parts counter at Chevrolet car dealers. In 1969, the 4-piston disc brakes could be ordered as a Regular Production Option (RPO) JL8 package on production vehicles. These high-end brakes were made available to support racing programs like the Sports Car Club of America® (SCCA), and Trans-Am® road racing series. This unique brake option is very rare and was only sold on about 200 production vehicles. This brake system must be used with the included REKUDO front spindles RK600-02 and front control arms RK100-21. The spindles have the proper pin for the front hubs and caliper mounts for these brake calipers. The use of factory stock control arms will result in too much static positive camber. If you want the complete front suspension system including the JL8 brakes use part number VK070001. This Virtual Kit is configurable in the Shopping Cart - You can add or delete parts once they have been added to the shopping cart. If you want a different finish on the calipers you can remove them from the shopping cart and replace them with the desired calipers RK400-12 (red), RK400-19 (black w/o logo), or RK400-21 (raw as cast aluminum). If there are any parts that you don't need at this time, they can be removed from the shopping cart before checkout.

Features:

  • REKUDO JL8 4-piston Front disc brake system – fits 1970-1981 Chevrolet Camaro / Pontiac Firebird

  • Rotor dust shields and caliper piston seals provide OE (original equipment) style protection not found on most racing brake systems
  • Black EDP (Electro-Deposit Primer) Coating – for Corrosion Protection (on Dust Shields)
  • Ideal for Street Driving, Auto-Cross, and Track Day Applications

This brake system must be used with REKUDO front spindles RK600-02 and front control arms RK100-21. The spindles have the proper pin for the front hubs and caliper mounts for these brake calipers. The use of factory stock control arms will result in too much static positive camber. If you want the complete front suspension system including the JL8 brakes use part number VK070001. Minimum 15-inch diameter wheels are required for caliper clearance (low-profile wheel weights may be necessary for some 15-inch wheels). REKUDO JL8 Brake System - Fitment Notes: 1970-1981 Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird - Vehicles must use the whole REKUDO JL8 front and rear brake system since the parts are unique (front spindles, rotors, front hubs, dust shields, calipers, and brake hoses). The REKUDO JL8 front brake system must use the front spindle set RK600-02 (since it has the caliper mounts and spindle pin for the front calipers and front hubs). Recommended Master Cylinder/Brake Booster - factory Power Brake Booster with master cylinder (1.125" bore size). Recommended Banjo Bolts: 977504ERL - 7/16"-20 Threads
