    Good job. Great Video. Love the wheels and rotors. I also have Sport Edition Wheels but my rotors are slotted (front & rear). Have you considered swapping the Catera front calipers for GTOs.

    Thanks. I was thinking to do that last year but was thinking that I would need to replace rotor and brakes at the time when they was already purchased for catera, so I decided just to rebuild calipers, with all new seals and pistons, wish I made video of it how to do it. Not to long ago was reading thread that saying that size of rotors and pads remaining the same. Is that correct?

    You need the 2004 GTO calipers, mounting brackets, brake pads, and brake hoses. The GTO pads are bigger than the Catera's. C5 Corvette pads are even bigger and will fit the GTO calipers too. The Catera rotors stay the same. No modifications necessary. Everything just bolts in. The only drawback is that you lose the brake pad sensors. Just short the wires to turn the dash light off.

    I did mine years ago and love them.
