WHEN IT COMES TO CLASSIC STREET TRUCK PARTS, CLASSIC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS IS A NAME THAT IS VERY WELL KNOWN TO THE INDUSTRY. CPP has been around for 41 years and carries parts for a wide variety of vehicles. When it comes to the popular C10 trucks, the company has just about anything you could need, from LS engine swap parts, suspension parts and steering to brake parts. So, when we needed some parts for our Suburban project, we knew where to turn to for help.

Currently we are doing a full build on a 1970 Chevrolet Suburban. There are big plans for this truck, and it will definitely be a head turner when it is completed. The plan is to lay the ‘burban out on big wheels with a bright blue paint job. The project has been dubbed the “Blues Traveler” because the truck will be driven almost everywhere it goes. Powering the truck will be a 525hp LS3 engine, so we knew we were going to need a good set of brakes on all four corners to bring this big ol’ truck to a stop. That’s where CPP comes into play.

After talking with the folks over at Classic Performance Products, we decided to go with the complete big disc brake setup for the front and rear of the truck. The complete kit addresses the lack of stopping power of the factory brakes by increasing the front rotor size to 13 inches. The new front rotor is also cross drilled and slotted. The new front caliper is bigger in size when compared to the stock caliper and is a dual piston design for more clamping force. Out back, the drum brakes will be swapped out and replaced with a 12-inch cross-drilled and slotted rotor with a single piston caliper.
