    I have no idea. Order by phone: 888-986-3373 ext 1 (Sales)

    Be sure to tell them it is a Goodridge part. Try giving my order number: PO# 22037101 for reference.

    I will have all the missing parts next Wednesday. Amazon split the order for the rear backing plates. One will arrive tomorrow and the other next wednesday.

    Waiting has been hard. Every time I have to stop at a light I just know the guy next to me is saying:

    "WTF is wrong with this guy. He put Brembos only on the front."

    So I just keep hang my head in shame.

    There are so many options. Is your wife cooperative? I can sure talk about what I did.

    I'm bumping this because JimmyH replaced the entire Part 1 text for me. Thanks JimmyH.

    Some changes.

    I noticed you removed the note about the rear backing plates only needed for the 2008 model. Does this mean every model year needs it?

    Re: [DIY] Install CTS-V Brembo Brakes on CTS (Part 1, GETTING STARTED)

    I was confused by the part number info.

    Part number 15853380 fit 2008 > 2012 CTS, NO CTS-V. That would be the small one.

    Part number 25851205 (on the parts list) fits 2009 > 2012 CTS and CTS-V. NO 2008. That would be the large one.

    There is something wrong here. Why would they list the large backing plate for the CTS? The cutout in it is for the Brembo caliper.
    So, bottom line is the large backing plate is required.

    Gotcha. Can you post pics of your completed project and detail the difference in feel and performance?

    The brakes are unbelievable. Go test drive a V.

    I'm not sure it will ever be done. Yesterday I had 295/35 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires mounted on the 10" Coupe wheels. Boy are they wide. Then, as a test, I put the the 285/35's from the rear on new 9.5x19 CTS-V wheels that will go on the front when the 11mm spacers arrive next week. If the size works out I will replace the tires with 285/35 Goodyear's. Then..., the 9x19's wheels off the front will go to Weldcraft Wheels Inc. and be widened to (10.5" or 11", not sure yet) and replace the 10" on the rear so they will FINALLY not stick out past the finder.

    Done! Post photos.


    Then the 10" CTS-V Coupe wheels will be sold.

    More then you wanted to know, right?

    OH! I forgot the spring kit and splitter. I may do my own splitter.

    Why are you selling? How much? I was looking at he Eibach Pro Kit as a value deal.

    I would be interested in what you're going with.
