I may do what Powhusku did and upgrade the rotors the the drilled/slotted Brake Performance rotors. Otherwise I'll focus my money on the fronts.

Thanks for the responses all!
That's what I am doing. I have only done the fronts so far. The rears will follow as time allows.

Something I over looked... Did you guys apply a light amount of brake grease on the back of your pads?

Yes I always do, with all my brake jobs.

If I happen to have problems with squeaking I would pull the pads and grease them up...

The stock pads did not have any type of coating and I installed the new CTSV calipers and pads dry as delivered. No squeaking so far after a few hundred miles. The first track day will be this coming Monday so I can comment on that next week. I love them so far.

For those who have done this, is the ZL1 rotor the best bang for the buck? I see they are a few pounds heavier, but have better airflow through them.

I'm sure there are several that are better, but any of them able to compete with the $450/pair pricetag?

Yeah they're one piece. I searched high and low for any drilled/slotted/dimpled/ect rotors that would fit our setup and pretty much no one makes them. Thats why I had to pair the CTS-V front rotors with SS rear rotors. I found one other company and their warranty sucked. I'm pretty certain that if you want two piece, you're stuck with Racing Brake or the AlDelco ones.

For the Brake Performance rotors, the fronts weigh 25.35 lbs, and the rears weigh 24.05 lbs.
Just a head's up, they are on sale:
Fronts are $265 with premium pads (semi-metallic)
Rears are $255 with premium pads
http://brakeperformance.com/brake-ro...ake-Rotors.php

I just have no idea if the free "standard" or $40 "premium" pads are any good...

My pleasure guys..I am glad it was helpful

Let me just leave these picture of my brakes here (note: my cars gets washed and then put away for extended periods of time, hence the pad rust spots on the front rotors....)

Wheels look great, do they stick out at all, did you get the staggered setup widths or all the same?

Thanks,

Yeah they stick out about 25mm.....If you click the link in my signature, page two has a ton of pictures. (Post 48 and 49)

I have the stock front and rear Z/28 set-up 19x11F and 19X11.5R. I was looking at trying to run the front 11" on all 4 corners but they would have stuck out event further in the back because.

Quick question, are there supposed to be shims behind the front pads?
