Wilwood Disc Brakes is proud to introduce a new front disc brake kit for the 1979-1981 Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. These lightweight kits will not only provide better street performance, but will definitely make a huge improvement over the original brakes on the track where consistency counts.

Kit features forged billet DynaPro 6 piston differential bore calipers that provide enhanced performance of a larger pad compared to four piston calipers. DynaPro 6 calipers utilize stainless pistons to resist corrosion and reduce heat transfer from the pads. Another unique feature is Wilwood’s exclusive Quick-E brake pads retention clips for simplified pad service without caliper removal.

Base kit (P/N 140-12836) comes with HP plain face 12.19” vented rotors and black powder coated (red calipers are optional) 6 piston calipers. ULHP rotors are smooth face machined from premium grade carbon iron castings to provide true and precise running for the street or track. Optional SRP performance rotors feature Wilwood’s signature directional drill and slot design with a protective E-coat finish. The drill and slot pattern adds race-tech styling and the venting qualities that preserve pad performance.

Friction is provided by BP-10 compound Wilwood “Smart Pads”. BP-10 is a unique metallic composite formula that provides quiet engagement and low dusting, but with the added temperature range and higher friction values of a semi-metallic compound pad. BP-10 runs clean and quiet on the street, with improved stopping power and fade resistance for tough roads or those fun days at the track. Optional race only pad compounds are also available.

To complete the installation, precision machined and application specific brackets come along with premium grade hardware and alignment shims for a secure and accurate installation. DOT approved flexline kits, required to adapt Wilwood calipers to your chassis plumbing, are available separately. Contact your local Wilwood dealer for ordering information.

Wilwood performance brake kits are loaded with cutting edge technology built on years of domination in world motorsports, and proven reliable through Zero PPM defect supply to OEM’s. Wilwood’s Big Brake Kits are designed to meet the high performance demands of today’s tire, wheel and suspension technology.
