    JE5 vs J55 Brakes

    My 2008 CTS has a 3.6 DI engine and came with the performance package. How do I determine if the brakes are JE5 or J55?
    Also, does these two use the same size pads?

    Welcome to the forum. There a lot of knowledgeable posters here and browse to your heart's content. Read and learn!

    Turn over the spare tire cover and you should have a printout of everything built into your car! It should say what brakes you have on your car.
