The REKUDO JL8 brake calipers are an ideal upgrade on the 1965-1982 Corvette (C2/C3) and replace the factory cast iron calipers with 7075 aluminum calipers (50% lighter). These calipers are interchangeable with the factory calipers, and use the same style brake pads. Aftermarket brake hoses will be required along with Earls banjo bolts part number 977504ERL. 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 RK400-10 (black), 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.

Minimum 15-inch diameter wheels are required for caliper clearance (low-profile wheel weights may be necessary for some 15-inch wheels). Slightly shorter bolts will be needed to attach the calipers on the Corvette (use two 7/16"-20 x 1.5" long Grade 8 bolts for each caliper). REKUDO JL8 Brake System - Fitment Notes: 1965-1982 Corvette - Vehicles can use the REKUDO calipers and after-market brake hoses that attach to the caliper with banjo bolts. The rest of the brake system can retain stock factory parts. The REKUDO front hubs (1969-1982 Corvette only) and rotors are the stock factory size and dimensions (so these also fit the Corvette). Recommended Banjo Bolts: 977504ERL - 7/16"-20 Threads
