6th Gen Chevrolet Camaro Brake System Upgrades

This video explains the difference between the OEM and Girodisc front brake rotors for your 6th Gen Camaro ZL1/ZL1 1LE and the brake pads that you run with them.

 

 

Available applications: 2017, 2018, 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and ZL1 1LE.

 

We have two OEM replacement rotor rings options in stock for your 6th Gen Camaro SS 1LE: Girodisc and DBA. Watch this video to learn about the weight, dimensions, and design differences between these two brands.

 

 

Available applications: 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE.

 

Girodisc sent us their very first pair of 2-piece rotors for a 6th Gen Camaro ZL1/ZL1 1LE. First impressions.

 

 

 

In this series we worked with Garage Therapy NC to learn about brakes on their ZL1 1LE track Camaro. We talk about lightweight Gorodisc 2-piece rotors, rotor fitment, pad wear, and available race pad options.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This diagram shows the increase in brake pad radial depth, with the SS 1LE pad being the "skinniest" and the stock ZL1 1LE being the "fattest." Girodisc rotors for ZL1 and ZL1 1LE have a smaller swept area than the OEM rotors and require a pad with smaller radial depth (middle image). Stock ZL1/ ZL1 1LE pads DO NOT fit the Girodisc rotors. You can order the Modified Hawk pads, or, if you don't mind loosing a couple of mm of friction material, you can choose to install the SS 1LE pads.
