    finalizing brake upgrade

    just want to make sure iv got the right stuff for the job
    ok so i got the 2004 gto front calipers with hoses and brackets, c5 corvette semi metallic brake pads, for the front.
    for the back i got ac delco durastops calipers with my old hoses and brackets from the rears, semi metallic brake pads

    also i got new rotors all around.

    Sounds like you got it all. Don't forget your brake lube! Might also want to pick up some new lines for the rear. When those lines get old they get soft at the fittings, making them a real b**** to get off sometimes, I've retreated to vice grips many times when dealing with the lines.

    have fun making the corvette pads fit in the caliper, the anti-rattle clip that comes off the center will screw with you
