Can someone chime in and let me know if the front rotors and pads for an '06 DTS w/ Performance package are different dimensions from the non-performance models. I was looking at AC Delco / Durastop ceramic pads and rotors on RockAuto and they don't differentiate other than heavy duty commercial (8 lug) brakes and 5 lug brakes. I don't want to order the wrong parts.

Any help would be appreciated.

Enter the VIN for the car into www.compnine.com. That will give you the RPO list and in that will be the brake type. If it's not a commercial limousine package it has the standard brakes.

I got it, code JL9 brakes. I would have thought the performance package would have larger brakes than the non-performance package (of course not the J55 limo brakes which are a whole different animal).

Pretty cool site. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the offer. This time around I'm having the rotors cut. Next time around, I'll look you up. I purchased a set of cross drilled and slotted rotors for my Infiniti M45 5 or 6 years ago from your company on eBay and was very happy with how they performed and how they made my car look.
