    If anyone's interested, I've got a front brake set off of my GTO/Monaro - calipers and brackets. Just upgraded to the '05s. I'm not on here as much as I used to be - just send me a PM.

    Re: GTO Brake SWAP LOG.

    I just want to confirm that the catera brake lines will attach onto the gto calipers. the set I bought was missing one of the brake lines and I don't want to buy another one.

    thanks

    They will, but They seemed to be about inch or two shorter and I think they stretched a bit much at a full lock on the steering wheel, and It just didnt qutie look right, so I used the GTO hoses but in any case you should be able to use the OEM hoses just make sure you disconnect the strut moutn to allow for a little extra movement... but in the future you should get the longer ones, just to be safe... thats brakes you are talking about here...

    you're right, strechting brake lines are a bit too scary.

    I'll just be patient and order a set.

    Do the rest of the GTO IRS parts fit onto the Catera? Do the half shafts/knuckles/control arms/differential interchange? I read in another thread that the shock absorbers swap out, does mean they share the same cast iron parts that support the axle shaft and lower shock absorber mount?

    For those of you who have upgraded to GTO brakes, what front rotors did you end up using?

    Stock rotors are fine but its suggested that you have them turned so that the surface is nice and straight. Otherwise GTO rotors dont work because of a slightly different bolt pattern....
