as it relates to the flynbye product, i'm installing his c6 z51 rear disc brake adapters (with parking brake plates). doesnt sound like anyone here has tried them.

reason why it'll be a while is i have the axle completely torn down (except for the bearing races), media blasted it last weekend. still need to paint and build it before the brakes go on.
Thanks! You didn't indicate in your previous post what you were calling him about. I'd like to have something larger than the 12" rotor LS1 brakes I'm presently running on my GN so I am interested in how you make out. I'll be looking forward to your future comments on this thread. Unfortunately, it's too difficult to get any information off the guy who is selling these kits. His brake business is just a side business for him, so he's too busy to take care of his customers, or potential customers. Pretty mind boggling.

I wouldn't send him my money. But I didn't have to worry about it. He NEVER returned my calls.

There's a guy on ebay that I've been dealing with for big brake parts and he responds quick and is really informative. Sellers name is lt4xtreme. He has brake stuff for front and rear for gbody and other vehicles.

4WD blazer stuff? Do your calipers hit the frame? I thought you had to put the caliper pointing backwards otherwise the caliper hits?

Hey, I looked on flynbye's site and I didn't see the backing plates you purchased. Can you be more specific where exactly I can see what he has offered? I know I can't just call up and ask. Did you just modify that flange specifically for your C5/c6 backing plate? Mine is similar for my LS1 rear brakes, but if the holes are in a different place from the LS1 to C5/C6, then that would be a problem for me. Any and all info for 13" rear brakes would be appreciated.

here is the link: http://www.flynbye.com/catalog/i261.html

as far as the axle flange -- yes, i cut the top off and had to drill the two holes at the top to match the backing plate. 2 holes at the bottom matched up, but needed to be drilled to a larger size (3/8").

The 13" rotors are C6 Z51, got them from power stop part # K5159-26.

one thing that i found out too late about was that even though this kit uses the z51 rotors, it uses c5/c6 base model abutment brackets. i bought the z51's.

the correct abutment brackets should be coming in the mail on monday, and i'll be able to show the finished product next week.

let me know if you have any other questions.
