I'm almost positive that the ls1 Brake rotors are 11 inches.

To do the upgrade you will need ls1 calipers, rotors, and you may even need to extend the brake line.

Not sure about the rotors, but all 98+ Fbodies came with dual PBR calipers. Thats the big upgrade IIRC. You can get 11.9 inch rotors to fit stock GP calipers.

98' - 02' F bodies have light duty dual piston calipers. They're not great but their leaps and bounds better than what's on the car to begin with.

Rotor size is 11.9 inches and since the holes are drilled larger than needed camaro rotors generally fit W Bodies.

To perform the upgrade you need to replace the caliper, caliper bracket, banjo bolts, pads, and rotors. You also need to come up with a provision to attach the F body caliper (12mm bolt) to the W body (14mm passthrough) so that the caliper isn't loose on the knuckle. To accomplish this you can either drill and tap the caliper bracket to 14mm or sleeve the W body knuckle to accept the smaller bolt.

BBRs? Did you mean PBRS John? And no, definetly not the same as the Baer kit. The Baer kit uses the HD C4 calipers.

It's not a typo. He needed a brake upgrade for Big Foot.
