CLARENCE, NY, October 27 -- Many muscle cars and Corvettes have been upgraded to high horsepower motors. Under the hood lies a beast, but what about your brakes? SSBC has developed a caliper that delivers that “whoa” in 15 inch wheels. Eight large stainless steel pistons are used to put maximum clamping pressure behind a C5 Corvette pad. Modern pad material—with massive clamping—controls stopping power. SSBC uses 11.8” x 1.25” thick rotors to handle heat disappation. With simple instructions and all hardware included, installation is done in just a few hours.

The option was only produced during a limited timeframe, from February 1969 to May 1969, and production was only 206 units. The JL8 option was available on any Camaro model; the cost was $500.30 (that would cost $3,261.64 today!) for SS or Z28 models and $623.50 ($4,064.83 today) for non-SS non-Z28 models. All JL8 cars received the 15x7 rally wheels. Most JL8s were installed on Z28s, though some non-Z28 non-SS Camaros have been verified as receiving JL8!
CLARENCE, NY, October 27 -- Stainless Steel Brakes Corporation developed a simple kit that bolts right on to the stock JK knuckle. This kit was designed for lifted Jeeps and/or Jeeps with bigger tires. The stock Jeep brakes are good for stock tires, but as soon as you go to a bigger tire, you add rolling mass. As much as 150 pounds per tire can be added with off road tires. This new kit is designed for big brake stopping within a tight budget. SSBC’s Big Brake caliper kits are designed to replace your O.E. calipers, use your factory hoses, and fit in factory wheels. Built with lager diameter pistons and severe duty Big Bite pads, the difference is very noticeable. CNC brackets, hardware and simple instructions allows installation in just a few hours. No wheel spacers required. No master cylinder change required. Optional caliper colors enhance the look of your Jeep. Starting at just $495.00, its a bargain for stopping your big tires.
