Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum Discussion, GTO Brake SWAP LOG. in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; Good news... So they fit all models then... did you use the GTO hose or did you stick with the ...
The ones I got have 22,000 miles. I used the GTO to make sure I have enough slack in the lines. Best thing is by fitting the 16 inch wheel it gives so many options for wheels. The car I am building is being set up as if it was an original package option on the Catera so I am sticking with the stock, chrome wheels.It's great having a spare Catera to try fitting parts on so I don't have to disable my primary one.
Cateramv6 should have gotten the c5 zo6 pads they are way bigger suface area than 04 gto pads and are a direct fit i just put them on my 04 gto and have 04 gto duralast pads like those in my rears the c5 pads were cheaper too but the were carbon mataltic not ceramic my rears are ceramic but never the less all my pads are lifetime warranty
Thats cool the only problem I have with the C5 pads is that they don't have the retaining clip that you see on the middle tooth of the caliper and so the outside pad actually rattles and can be annoying sometimes. Otherwise my next set of pads will certainly be the C5 ones these are good enough for now...
I havent touched the rears I might get some new pads for there but that will be in the next few months... Right now I am trying to finish up the rear panel and the Opel badging and then its off to the new wing for the trunk...

They will not fit unless you also change to the 05-06 hub and disc, if that can even be done. Of course now you'll have hubs/discs with a different lug bolt pattern from stock meaning you'll need different wheels fore and aft. Might be the reason far no one has tried it that I know of.
