CLARENCE, NY, October 27 -- With 12 different styles of forged master cylinders and 12 different cap styles, you can customize the master cylinder to match the valve cover on your car. The ugliest thing under the hood is the master cylinder, but not any more. SSBC has forged an aluminum master cylinder that handles over 4000 psi and can be finished just the way you like. The master cylinders are available in popular muscle car and street rod applications. Finishes are available in clear, black nickel and polished. SSBC offers the same finishes for the caps and also has plain, finned and ball milled styles. These caps match most of the aluminum valve covers.
“These new finishes and styles finish the look under the hood. Master cylinders go from ugly to matching. The Master cylinder does not look like it was added on,” says Mike Jonas, lead designer at SSBC. 12 caps and 12 different bodies, make 144 combinations of different looks. Available in popular GM, Ford and Mopar applications.
JL-88 offers even MORE brake performance in 15 inch wheels.
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. Applications for popular GM muscle cars are available and include optional finishes, rotors and drop spindles. 1965-1982 Corvettes even have the option for “Direct Fit”. Eight piston all around. Rims required are only 15” x 7” and will fit GM steel rally wheels
CLARENCE, NY, October 27 -- The system was released in 1969 for production as RPO JL8, 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes. 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!

“Direct Fit “alumunim calipers for 1965–1982 Corvette.
Rear four piston aluminum calipers to match your four piston front.
CLARENCE, NY, October 27 -- Four piston calipers on the front of any vehicle is easy to build. With all the new wheels that are available, wheel openings are getting bigger. So matching front and rear calipers is desirable. New cars are delivering the same, so SSBC paid attention and developed a matching rear caliper program. The key to this program is to find the right parking brake and rotor system. Keep in mind that the parking brake is inside the rotor. SSBC has been making the Corvette sytem in stainless for years. Making a rotor was easy. The new kit has a complete stainless parking brake system and will mount to any of the popular rear axles. Using 11.5” rotors and our award winning comp caliper, SSBC has the right combination.
