Wilwood's D8-6 calipers are a direct bolt-on replacement for the OE calipers on all 1965-82 Corvettes. Forged billet aluminum bodies, grey Anodize finish (or Black/Red Powdercoat), stainless steel pistons, and high-temperature seals put an end to the rust, bore pitting and seal failures that plague the OE caliper design. D8-6 calipers provide low-maintenance performance, a huge weight savings, high temperature reliability, and the added benefit of six piston pad clamping power. D8-6 calipers mount in the stock location over stock rotors, use the original style D8 brake pads, and fit snugly inside most '67 or newer production wheels. Some wheels, including the 1965-66 OE "JK" code steel wheels and a few aftermarket replica alloy wheels, will require a 3/16" or wider wheel spacer for clearance. D8-6 calipers use the same overall piston volume as the original calipers, but with the added benefit of differential bores. Differential bores counteract pad taper in high temperature racing and the 6 piston design offer greater pad support. With its unyielding strength and superior piston design, the D8-6 and D8-4 calipers generate positive pedal response and high clamping efficiency with a substantial weight savings. Kits contain DOT compliant stainless braided brake lines Promatrix compound pads.
