    Good luck and let me know if you find two sets.

    I talked to JDP again today and they can't say when the site will be up.
    If you can help me out by listing all of the parts I can start looking for 2 sets

    Re: JDP CTS-V Stage 2 6-Piston Upgrade Package on CTS

    I did a little research into this also a while back.
    Learned 2 more things:
    1) Many V owners use the 18 inch CTS wheels for track day wheels, so they clear the Brembo calipers.
    2) A lister told me the spindles were exactly the same among all models, even the V's still have the center hole for the 4 wheel drive axles.

    Couldn't find anything out about the hubs though. They may or may not be the same.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    ----------

    All right, update.
    Just did a quick gmpartsonline search and they list different hubs & bearings at all 4 corners for the V vs the CTS.
    No part numbers. $229 ea.

    Yes, all my searches turned up more questions.

    As for the hubs, the JDP kit does not include them and I believe they use stock V calipers.

    I also wonder if there is a parking brake issue. The rear rotors are stock V and therefore have the parking brake drum.

    Time will tell.

    Front and Rear rotors:

    Very nice information buddy! However when I did a search on Amazon for "cts-v caliper" I get parts 172-2288 for $126 and 172-2308 for $87. Can you check these out?

    Okay, the two numbers you listed are for 2007 down. The GM numbers for those are 89047726 and 89047743.

    I use www.tonkinonlineparts.com for reference because they list by ACDelco and GM numbers.

    On their page enter the number in "Search Words or Parts"

    Please edit your reply and remove the quoted info. I changed it below and added the GM numbers for the calipers.
    I make changes as I find them. I have to update the brake lines as well, the listed ones are not correct.

    Thanks for checking.

    Post edited. I will wait for you to test the parts first before deciding on what to do.

    Re: JDP CTS-V Stage 2 6-Piston Upgrade Package on CTS

    Here is what I came up with for all the parts needed (I hope). All from Amazon except bolts from www.Gmpartsonline.net and brake lines from www.wundercarparts.com
    Just to be sure, a friend at a local dealer is going to loan me a front Caliper and Rotor to dry fit and check clearances.
    If that goes well then, and only then, will I say it's a go and order the parts below.

    PARTS LIST UPDATED ELSEWHERE IN THIS THREAD

    You will also need 3-4 pints of your chose of fluid.

    I chose the 2 piece front rotors because I like them. There are a lot of 1 and 2 piece, drilled, slotted and drilled & slotted
    rotors so do some searches and let me know what you find. I also chose the Yellow Calipers because they are the cheapest
    and I will have them powder coated anyway (RED) and get rid of the V logos, taboo on a non-V, in favor of Brembo.

    I will order 4 sets (8) speed bleeders because I'm a jerk and have no friends to help me bleed the brakes.

    EDIT: Cleaned this up a little.

    I truly know nothing about rotors but $530 less then the GM rotors is a lot of money. They look very good but there has got to be a lot of cheep Chinese knockoffs out there, not that these are, but who knows.

    How about these? Probably not on my car but hell they may be good for a year.

    However,

    When I get the 2 piece sample for fitment test I may change my mind and go with a 1 piece front rotor..

    I will post pictures.

    LOL those are way too cheap! No bueno!

    I do not track my car or drive with a heavy foot so these are mainly for show. Thats why I am looking for a mid-priced 1 pc cross-drilled slotted.....no need to go overboard with high performance rotors.

    I just added a couple of videos to my post below. Check out the one on drilled rotors. What's the chance a cheep drilled rotor will crack? For the street solid may be the best bet and could be even cheeper.

    I continue to update. Please let me know if you can find these SAME part numbers for less then the listed suppliers. I can add another column for the Silver Calipers if you like.

    So if the testing fits will you go with Amazon parts or JDP kit?
