I'd still like to do the CTS-V clampers... or Lockheeds if I could find a good price, then I guess the SS MC would be better. It sucks being poor! LOL!

Guess I'll just have to work more OT and spring for the SS MC.

Thanks for the info... I appreciate it.
Sorry, I'm still not sure what you wrote. I'm still staring at that Ducati...

CTSV calipers and rotors

Great read, a lot of work.
What is the distance, center to center of the CTSV rear caliper mounting bolts?

Nothing different in the rears. Just use the ss rotors and calipers. Only thing to consider initially would be stainless lines and/or powder coat rear calipers to match the front CTS-V's 6-pistons. Have fun.

I was trying to think what our set up cost from GM it was around $2100.00 for the parts on the front,I didn't do the rear as they are the same as the ctsv,our car is a 2 ss so we started with the brembo brakes and did not need to change the master cylinder,if you make the upgrade you will like it for sure.

That sounds like a good price for what you get.

Thank you for the responce,i asked becase im working on a brake kitt with a GREAT company and it seems it hould be very compititive with this price and should be even better.We also worked up a small rear brake kitt for the drag guys to be able to run 15 inch rear rims but that will stop the car lol...thanks guys

The beauty of the CTS-V setup is the bias if perfect out of the box.
