New D-Spec Struts and 6P Brakes for my GT/CS

Had a couple of hours to spare today so I got busy on the install.

OEM brakes and Steeda Pro Action Struts:



OEM Caliper and Rotor removed:



Baer Radial Mount Bracket installed:



Baer 6 Piston Caliper, 14" Rotor, Tokico D-Spec Strut and (not in the picture) Maximum Motorsports Caster/Camber Plates installed:



Baer Stainless Steel Brake Line:



So far so good, if the "Time Gods" are with me I will tackle the Driver's side tomorrow and bleed the brakes.

Awesome!!! Nice upgrade. Love the pics. Keep us updated, especially about the ride and stopping changes after you get a chance to test drive.

Rick, yes pull the trigger. That color will look fantastic on your car not to mention the improved braking. In Canada I paid $1950, but I think the Shelby logo ones would have been more so your $1780 is a good deal.

I went with Baer Decela Slotted and Drilled Rotors in the rear, they are OEM diameter. It was a tossup between the Decela’s and Baer 14” Eradispeed Plus II, I chose the OEM diameter to keep my options open for 15” Drag Radials.

I always like the look of those calipers. Any idea what size/type brake pads it takes?

It is my understanding the Baer Pro Plus Calipers are designed to accept Corvette C6 pads. Therefore there is a wide selection of competition and street pads available.

Finally completed my front brakes with the installation of Agent 47 Brake Cooling Scoops (2005 -2009 Shelby GT and California Special) and the Brake Cooling Duct Kit. Installation was pretty straight forward, with the exception that I needed to trim the driver and passenger side brackets that secure the Vortech Water Cooler Assembly to clear the Scoops and Diverters.
