ho is absolutely correct as to the bolts being designed as "one time use". I did read (a post from Pedders) that the race teams would re-use the bolts if new ones weren't at hand when needed. He give a torque of 166 ft-lbs as what they used. I re-used the bolts since I will be installing the Quantum brake cooling backing plates within 2 weeks and didn't want to waste new ones for a limited time use. In my case this is not a DD car and I won't put many miles on the old bolts so I felt it was worth the risk. That said, the bolts look like standard bolts and not the necked down versions usually associated with "torque to yield" joints.

Ok thanks for the confirmation and the information, I ordered the bolts this morning.

After googling I see on both the ZL1 and CTS-V they are in fact on top. Might have accidentally put them on the wrong sides lol.

This is really a great price... Couple questions to the guys that did this already.

Any other modifications to the car necessary?
Is their any reasons to change the rear brakes on an SS? I read through the whole thread and it sounds like there is no reason... Am I correct?

You are correct, no reason to change the rear brakes. Just be sure to get ZL1 front brake lines stainless or stock.

Rear ZL1 & SS brakes are the same they just have different paint jobs.

I bought a full set of CTS-V calipers just so I could have them painted w/o taking my car out of commission. I bought a full set of rotors for the same reason.

That is the only reason I can think of to do anything more than just the front.
