You have a powerful pickup truck on your hands and that is a good thing, but you need to take a moment and think about your braking system. Can your truck stop on a dime when you need it to? What is your stopping power like? These questions matter, and they can make the difference in a situation that requires you to hit the brakes a little harder than you may have intended. Our 99-06 Silverado big brake kits are a good choice for your large truck and they will provide you with the stopping power that you need. In fact, you will notice that you can stop in a shorter amount of time and distance and you will have complete control over your ride too.
Whether you use your truck as your daily driver, or you use it to transport loads across town, it is better to know that you can stop when you hit the brakes. You do not want to leave this up to chance and will find that it is much better to have the ability to stop. Especially if you haul cargo, you will benefit from a big brake kit, as it takes more time and power to stop when you have a hefty load in the rear of the truck.
While your OEM brakes are capable of getting the job done, they cannot do it all on their own over a long period of time and you will often notice that they can falter quickly, even after you have replaced them. Big brake kits offer you more surface area, which allows for better heat dissipation and a safer stop across the board. You will notice that with big brake kits, your brakes last a lot longer than the OEM options.
Silverado big brake kits allow you to take your truck to the next level. Your Silverado comes with two small piston calipers and standard rotors, which are okay in some situation, but could use a quality replacement. You can replace them with four pistons and heavily slotted rotors to ensure better airflow and stopping ability. If you have a big brake kit installed and you mash the brakes, you will instantly come to a stop, even if you are hauling a large load behind your truck.
Wilwood is one of the top manufacturers in this space and AmericanTrucks is proud to be able to offer you a large selection of big brake kits to choose from. One of the nice things about Wilwood kits is that they offer you a no hassle installation process that is ideal for both amateurs and professionals alike.
