No luck with a search for rotor replace or caliper torque specs so I ask here for your expertise

I decided to go with new raybestos pg plus rotors, good reviews all over the net on these. Matched them with a set of the Performance Friction Carbon Metallics as those also get a high rating from alot of users.


So the question is what are the torque specs for the caliper bolts and the caliper bracket bolts? Closes thing I could find was The Corvette mod, but that was on a 99 model where I have a 2001 GT1. So instead of guessing they are the same, I hope you can say for sure.

Thanks

You gotta be careful with that. I got a retard friend who goes by that. He tends to ruin everything he tightens because it breaks.....snug is the way to go

front disc brakes-
brake hose to caliper bolt: 40 lb/ft
caliper bleeder valve: 115 lb/in
caliper bracket to knuckle bolt: 85 lb/ft
caliper to bracket mounting bolt: 23 lb/ft

rear disc brakes-
brake hose to caliper bolt: 37 lb/ft
caliper bleeder valve: 98 lb/in
caliper bracket to knuckle bolt: 85 lb/ft
caliper to bracket mounting bolt: 81 lb/ft


That's everything.

ok thanks, finished rotor pad r/r no problems and can say the new parts are a very noticable improvment over stock. Very smooth braking again from all speeds. Those stock rotors are the worst. had the last 2 sets replaced while under the 3yr/36k but now since that 2nd pair felt warped and wasnt too long before those got real bad I said time to go to a different brand, so I'm Happy with them.

If anyone is interested it was a 12mm socket for the caliper bolts and a 1/2" socket for the caliper bracket bolts. Use a short breaker bar and about 60 to 90 minutes. Turning the wheels also helps with more room to get torque on the bolts if you are muscle challenged like me.
