Hello all,

I've been researching brake upgrades and needed a little clarification on the 12" upgrade mentioned here:  http://www.aztekfanclub.com/SMF/index.php/topic,756.0.html

From what I can tell, it seems that the AWD front brakes are already 12", correct?  Anyone know off the top of their head if it's a 2 piston caliper on the stock AWD front brakes?  If not it would seem that it one might still get some improvement in braking by installing the F body twin piston calipers.

I also found that the F body folks usually upgrade to the stock C5 corvette rotors as their first step.  I have been looking to for a set of 17 or 18" wheels, so depending on what I find, perhaps my brake upgrade could be to use F-Body calipers with C5 rotors.  Anyone with an AWD have thoughts?
