    Default Has anyone bought/used this Wilwood Brake Kit?

    I found this Wilwood kit on eBay. Price isnt too bad, but im wondering if anyone has used it or has any experience with it.

    The Dynalite calipers have a pretty small pad size. But they have been the mainstay of Wilwood kits for decades.

    Oh shoot, I didn’t know that. Thank you for the insight.

    I did some more research and the SuperLites look like the way to go. I found a kit for about $300 more that has:

    (1 piece rotor) 13” Front SuperLites
    and
    12” Rear DynaLites.

    Did some more research on 1 piece vs 2 piece, and the general concensus was that 2 piece is for more aggressive use such as track racing. My car is only for street, so the 1 piece rotor will do fine.

    Thank you again for pointing out that there is a difference in pad sizes

    Yes Superlites do have a bigger pad and probably a better choice for our heavy vehicles.
