Parts cost for 4 wheel brake job on ZR1

I know, I know; fronts are gonna be gone long before the rears and if you can afford a ZR1 are you really worried about the cost of brakes but here ya go anyway. These are GM wholesale pricing.

Front and rear rotors = $1,440.75 ea x 4 = 5763.00
Front Pads per wheel = $581.25 x 2 = 1,162.50
Rear pads per wheel = $441.75 x 2 = 883.50
Total 7809.00

Add about 15% for GM retail parts price = $8,980 for parts only. To see if you need rotors they have to disassemble the brake system enough to remove the rotor to weigh it. Each rotor has its own discard weight stamped on it. So add in labor and tax and I am sure you are getting out a ten thousand dollar bill to be paid in full. Getting GM wholesale pricing from GM parts departments is pretty easy. So there ya go, for what it is worth.

And your local chevy dealership is going to do the weighing??? Scary. Most won't race it, so they won't have to worry about the brakes.

Slap on a set of NAPA rotors and Hawk racing pads and you're good to go!

I don't expect a run on brake parts. Not many will be driven enough to wear them out anytime soon.

Re: Parts cost for 4 wheel brake job on ZR1

hmmmm, buy a new zr1 for god knows how much and have a couple of brake jobs done or:
buy a c6z and put all the performance stuff on yourself with the money you saved from not buying a zr1 AND have the brake job money left for a tow vehicle, or track day costs, or a couple of gallons of gas.....


seems like a no brainer.

Re: Parts cost for 4 wheel brake job on ZR1

The costs are right in line with other supercars "P, F and L cars" that utilize carbon/ceramic brakes. If you're going to play you'll have to pay. Shouldn't be a problem unless someone is financially over their head when they bought the car in the first place.

Re: Parts cost for 4 wheel brake job on ZR1

It would be nice if Chevy offered an iron brake option like Porsche does. The carbon brakes are great, but if you want to track the car on any kind of reasonable budget, there are much, much better alternatives, both in terms of cost and ultimately braking performance....

Re: Parts cost for 4 wheel brake job on ZR1

Sure the rotors are expensive, but more importantly, their FRAGILE! This will come into play when people remove their wheels for whatever reason and chip a rotor edge with the wheel bbl... Or, they use some (any) wheel cleaner/degreaser and get some on the swept surfaces...

EDIT: GM isn't covering either of these scenarios with their warranty either!
