    I just wanted to share my front brake upgrade using the Blazer spindles and the Kore3 bracket. Here are some pictures of the before and after. I also upgraded the master cylinder.

    I'll be honest with you. I'm not 100% sure the benefit but the guy they gave me the idea auto crosses a Monte Carlo and has the same upgrade and he recommended that master cylinder. I like the looks of it compared to the factory one and I like the feel of the pedal

    Yes definitely looks better and the twist cap is also better than those stupid pop on caps.

    Going to have to try it out.

    Thanks
