You did get my curiosity up tho, have you done the math yet?
I will when time allows for my own benefit. Nose diving is more of a function of suspension geometry and spring/damper rates, so I'll look at hard numbers. GM was obviously not concerned too much about weight (perhaps they let too many engineers go?) or they would have done a much more reasonably sized rear system. It's a straight lift from the CTS-V and might be a bit too much iron to run at temperatures that are complementary to the fronts. They will work, but I would estimate they are not at optimum.

I need a little more info on the CTS-V calipers to get it all sorted out. After I get a few of the too many projects off of my plate, I'll chase that stuff down.

I'd like to see some back to back (x10 or till Pete's eyes pop out of socket LOL) 100 - 0 distances along side a stock SS

On March 29th in New Jersey, we will be putting the Pedders Camaro thru its paces.
I would think Pete would do some kind of brake test.

It will be pricey. I Managed to find the parts on GMpartsdirect and the front calipers alone were 325/ea.

**Edit**
Interesting finding. Maybe you can explain since you did front and rear swaps from the V. When looking online at prices the right rear caliper is significantly cheaper than the left rear...

I'm seeing a diff of about 3x the cost for the left over the right.

Care to post part numbers for all pieces required?

I doubt those are 6-piston calipers for 325. ea. Sounds more like the 4-piston price.

Retail is 560/ea a piece. They have them listed as 09 CTS-V calipers. That's why I was asking for part numbers. 560/ea retail is about right for 6 piston. 325 is just what GMPD has them listed for.

3400 bucks isn't a bad upgrade for the money. I imagine some of the higher end brake company charge way more than that for their brakes that will fit on the camaro

The odd rear caliper pricing is just that odd. Overall the price point for the upgrade is ridiculously low. The beauty of a front only as long as you do complete CTS-V pads is that the rear CTS-V and Camaro Calipers are the SAME. The master cylinder is compatible as is the ABS computer, Life is good when you stay in the GM house.

Btw,






The truth is Pedders USA has one Bad Camaro. The article is about the real enthusiasts that bring their personal car to the Optima Challenge. The editor at Camaro Performers took a liking to our car and put out some stellar pictures in the April 2010 Edition of Camaro Performers magazine. With Paul Tracy behind the wheel Pedders was in an exhibition class and was easily the FASTEST 2010 at the event. That said, this event belongs to the individual enthusiasts. We congratulate them.

Congratulations to the FASTEST Camaros that Competed

Ryan Mathews Fastest 2.2 Mile Lap Time
Mary Pozzi Fastest Autocross Lap Time
Steven Rupp Fastes 0 to 60 and back to 0
Bret Voelkel Style
Ryan Mathews Overall

I like! I agree - staying in house is always better than aftermarket - even when there are great companies to choose from.

Once I get more into my Camaro project, I see doing CTS-V fronts and SS rears with V pads all around...glad to know about this working so well!

Has anyone done a heads up comparison of before and after braking distances after changing from the SS Brembo package to the CTS-V Brembo package?

Doubtful you'll see shorter stopping distance... This is a good option for anyone wanting to reduce brake fade.
