    Wilwoods are about $4k; Brembos are more like $6-8k.

    I think the stock pads in my 17 denali are horrible, going to try some new pads and see if the braking is better.

    HI - Just installed the GMC (GM) Brembo kit this past weekend. Easy install, and much, much, much better stopping over stock 14" rotors and calipers. I also added braided lines (Not included in the GM kit)

    Here are some photos

    Fronts only. GM does not make a kit for the rear to my knowledge for the Yukon. If you want rears you need to go directly to Brembo, Willwood or others..

    Aren't there better options available from the Camaro SS calipers or 2500 series trucks with bigger brakes?

    Just installed the Brembo GMC kit on my Denali. Very easy except for getting copper washer off of brake line bolt. Just breaking them in, so I haven’t tried any hard stops. Shop around, you can find this kit for just over 2k. Tried finding a Denali with this option back in May when I bought my 18 but none were available. Option was around 2800 so it was more economical to add them myself. I still have old rotors and calipers as well.
