Ok have stock pads on and ordered some ceramics through the local auto parts store. The pads they gave me were not the same size and shape of the stock. Is there a difference in aftermarket size and shape compared to the OEM? If so shouldnt they still use the spring and pins that the stock use?

Just installed a set of crosss drilled and slotted rotors along with the pads on my 2011 Camaro. Scared as hell but I got thru it with flying colors thanks to this article. I also installed MGP caliper covers while everything was apart. Thanks a bunch for a GREAT DIY article. Helluva lot of brake dust during the "bedding" process though!

Holy crap. I've never even watched someone else install brake pads before but I read through this and it gave me the courage to save the $500 the dealer was going to charge me.

Literally took me 15 minutes per wheel. Thanks for the write up.

You actually can paint the entire rotor then when you install it the pad will rub off where the pad meets the rotor

I have a few questions on the part numbers for the caliper bolts. I found where 11579788 was listed as the part number for the front bolts and then another spot where 11515781 was listed as the front caliper bolt. Which is it? Are the front and rear bolts the same? When you order them is it per bolt or do they come in pairs? I checked several GM parts websites with no luck in answering my questions. Can you help a fellow C5'r out?

When i got the caliper bolts it was easier to just get them from the dealer with them just looking up my vin. And i had to buy each bolt
4 front
4 back
But i had to buy 5 back because where my dealer had to order them from they do not stock them and they only came in packs of 5

Did not have that experience on my bolts. I ordered them from Mike Anderson Chevy here in Chicago and they came in a 4pk front and 4pk rear.

DIY Brake Pad R & R

Nice DIY. I've changed brakes on many different chevys and by far this is the simplest brake job I've ever done! Takes longer to get the wheels on and off. If you're not doing this for yourself, you're just asking to be taken...
