7/8" for front brakes. Going smaller ought to increase pedal stroke a bit, which is fine where it is now. So am looking at a bigger bore caliper. Am just wondering of a 6% improvement will help me get from acceptable brakes to locking the tires. I have doubts, but I admit, it's a 50:50 thing.

Mind you.... to try it is expensive (only if it doesn't work) at about $500 Cdn for a new set of Wilwoods.
