F-body calipers? What about the brackets? Do they bolt up to the Cruze?
They say they have brackets. They do not say if they are stock.
This is off ZZPs kit
looks like the same brackets on an autozone caliper for an LS1 Camaro to me

Thanks for the research on this. I'm concerned about the mounting bolt distance and bolt size. This caliper fits the fourth gen camero, but not the third. What I am trying to do is make sure nobody buys the wrong caliper. And which version of the f body caliper we need.
Thanks again for this info.
They specify a 12" rotor. We'll call that 305mm. The friction height on a Camaro pad is about 52mm or so.
The area of a ring with an outer diameter of 305mm and an inner diameter of 253mm is 41,331mm².
The Trax rotor is 300mm, and the friction height is about 58mm. The area of a ring with an outer diameter of 300mm and an inner diameter of 242mm is 44095mm²
The Trax rotors have a larger swept area.
Trax caliper has a 60mm piston, or 2827mm² surface area.
Camaro caliper has dual 45mm pistons, or 3180mm²
The larger piston area means for any given pressure applied at the pedal, a higher pressure will result at the caliper. This comes at the expense of pedal travel(it will travel farther and feel lighter) and altered front rear brake ratio/bias
I am the OP. I used shields for the same reason the factory did. Never the less, what is the center to center distance of the caliper bracket mounting holes?
