: JE5 vs J55 Brakes

08-10-13, 07:56 PM
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.

And no, not the same pads.
