Yes please share your build. Try Imgur as they work great for me as PhotoBucket is dead to me now.

They're from the earlier 04-07 CTS-V. They upgraded them to 6 piston in 08

The calipers were fairly cheap, but prices have gone up lately since there's a company selling brackets to put them on 240SXs and Subarus.

what is the clearance from the hub face to the front of the caliper? I have a set of wheels that clear the wheel's barrel but the spokes hit the front of the caliper unless a fairly large spacer is used.

That is with the Mercedes brake kit, wonder if these are better.

Also what is the rotor diameter and thickness Ryan?

What is needed for this set up? Are the caliper brackets custom made?

Ryan I would be interested to know the distance the caliper sticks out from the hub or rotor surface. My wheels are fine diameter wise but hit the front of the mercedes calipers on the spokes without a spacer. looking for a setup that has less caliper offset.

Fun fact: there is more than 1 casting for the Group A oilpan. We were looking up other peoples installs and found a guy on Facebook that had posted pictures, and it is definitely 2 different castings. There is a slight difference in shape of the lower pan (Nashmans is boxier) and the oil return from the oil cooler is different.

They are a set of super vintage american racing wheels, they are 17's but I don't know the offset. They fit most brakes I have tried including the brembo 350mm setup under the barrel but I keep running into issues with the spokes hitting the caliper front without running a fat spacer. so now I always try to get the distance from the hub to the caliper face when I hear about a new kit

If you ever do sell that pan, please put me at the top of your list to check with for a buyer ;) When I saw you picked it up off IJ I was kicking myself!
