Brake upgrades for my 2014 GMC Sierra


Recommended Posts

I have finally collected all the parts I need to make this upgrade. I will be test fitting the front calipers to make sure the wheels will clear. My parts list is

Front calipers for a 2020 gmc 1500,

Rotors are the PPV rotors for 2020 gmc 1500, and the Z36 power stop pads.

The rear is 2020 Camaro SS rear calipers, Z26 power stop pads. 

CTSVBRAKESWAP.COM caliper adapters.

And 2014 gmc 1500 PPV rotors.

Hell yeah! This has been on my bucket list for a while, I just haven't had the time. I'm looking forward to reading your review. When you have time would you mind posting the part numbers you used?

I don't know the parts book like you do so excuse my ignorance. What makes this combination an "Upgrade"?

4 piston calipers are the biggest thing. 

Police vehicle rotors are ceramic coated and the pads are carbon fiber ceramic.

I'm guessing my 17" factory steel wheels will not work with this setup? :dunno:

I don't believe so. On the front anyways you can do the rear I believe. When I get to the install of this, I will test fit the spare on the rear to give you an answer for 17's on rear at least.

So my current 20's on my 2014 will clear the new front calipers with very little trimming on the calipers. My 22's on the 18 took more trimming to clear. Also ordered a couple of replacement wheels for the spare tires that will clear the calipers. I will add more info later, I just did some test fitting for front today.

Here's a 17in aluminum spare tire wheel that will clear the calipers. I might consider a set of these for winter tires myself.

Following. Spacers for the front calipers? Do they bolt up to the same wars without an adapter?

 

Thanks,

I don't like running spacers on my wheels. You do have to add shims to the caliper mounts to center up the calipers. I will post pictures of this when they get here, they are just m14 flat washers. I do have to trim a tiny amount off the calipers for my factory 20's to clear. If you want to run 17's you'll have to get a set off a 2019+ truck, or get aftermarket wheels with the correct spacing to clear. My aftermarket 22's on my 18 requires more trimming on the calipers to clear the wheels. The attached pictures the calipers with marker lines are what I need to shave down for my 20's to fit. The other is what I had to do for my 22's to fit. I may switch wheels before I do the brake job on the 18. 20240620_155109.thumb.jpg.e1288e1210bc623f1ea43ac5bf792c5f.jpg17189131001902366362312637789747.thumb.jpg.3dc160415ad1c662b6417d2528d7a62c.jpg
