Hey all, I need to change my pads and rotors which are factory at the moment. I was wondering which is the best direct fit replacement for this? Or, if it’s possible to upgrade the caliper  and rotor and pads to something larger like on for Camaro or something. I’d like to beef them up a bit

I just did all 4 corners with the power stop z36 kit and have been very happy. We also flushed the fluid and the brakes feel better than the day I bought the truck. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapat

Just ordered some EBC rotors they are about the only rotors I can smash on in the hills and not warp....priceless!

I did the rotors and pads. Left the calipers alone. The only downside is that they're dusty. I'm sorry I should have mentioned that earlier --just didn't think of it.

Would it be a straight swap pads and rotors? Or would I need callipers as well? Would they also be from the same year?

What about the Tahoe Cop car GM pads and rotors?

I didn't know those were a thing. Is it a straight swap? What's different about them vs the truck pads and rotors?

i did police brake rotors and performance police ceramic pads for my 2016 silverado.

quoted from description of the pads 

"ACDelco Gold Enhanced Performance Severe Duty Ceramic Brake Pads"

"These brake pads are specifically designed to meet the demands of police and fleet vehicles."

-rockauto, just entered in my truck specs as i didnt want fitment issues, especially since GM offers police packages for silverados now.

-you dont need the "tahoe" police brakes, the part numbers are different, not sure on the actual difference though, the pads i ordered are the ceramic performance pads. they are not beveled at the edges, i have full pad contact on the rotor, like the tahoe brakes. 

-i didnt want semi or metallic due to noise potential, OEM brakes are cermaic.

-copy pasted from my order receipt.

I’m going to go that route. Thanks so much[emoji106]

Glad I could point you in that direction.I'm doing the same on both of my 2018's

The Tahoe part numbers are different but the parts are the same I'm pretty sure.

I wasn't aware they had these for Silverados. Not as many pickup cop cars but thousands of Tahoe's. I think guys were ordering the Tahoe parts before and using them on trucks
