2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Cross-Drilled (GM) Rotors now Available in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Just thought I would let you guys know that the cross drilled rotors are available from GM now. Mine should ...
Is it just me or is GM parts direct still not showing the fronts p/n 88964607?
all I see is the rears listed 88964608 same as a week ago...
I'd be glad to hear how it runs out for you. I really don't want to have to order through my dealer as they are wanting 350 a set. Only about a hundred bucks difference, but if I can order them online myself and save a C note...
Remember, though, GMPD charges about 17% additional for S/H. That will bring it closer to the dealer price. They usually take about 3 weeks to ship, since they're a dealer middleman. They don't stock parts, but order them from GM at a discount. (They are Flow Chevrolet in NC)
Let me see what the wife's parts dept will do for you. I'm getting them for less than the 280.00 per pair. I'll let you know tommorow. I'm pretty sure they can do under 300.00 per pair. I'm only about 40 minutes from you.
Have they been cryo treated? Those are the economy Brembo rotors and after drilling and slotting they've been weakened. The cryo treatment bring them back up to snuff. I paid about $600 for my four cryo treated Brembo rotors. The Hats were also epoxy painted. That OEM gray paint lasts about 6 months. I bought mine at Cadillac Motorsports.
I have REALLY stupid question......I think the brakes are PERFECT now. Why change?
JIM BOB....as you know,..there is always room for improvement,...and whats good, can always be great...for example, your stock cam,..versus that sexy cam you have in the car now...
...same thing, different part. The V brakes are nice, ... but the drill holes, or slots in rotors help to keep the brake rotors/pads cool(er) , plus help dispense the gases,....therefore giving LESS brake fade.
You may not experience ANY fade now but,...given several minutes of hard, repetive stops, or hard brakes....the slotted/drilled rotors would only perform better, longer.
Mine are going out for powdercoating (hats and fins) as soon as they get here. Finally found someone who does a good job.
If you want to spend your money wisely get them cryro treated too. Cracked & warped rotors suck!
I did it for looks as I'm a somewhat conservative driver..but I knew from research that I was weakening the rotors..thus the rotors spent a day in the cryro tanks to harden them up. Witness this photo.

I'm willing to bet there will more brake fade with these rotors. Beware also that pad life will be shorter with drilled/slotted rotors. Bottom line is that they just look cool. Don't expect any performance increase.
