    What size are the 6pot HSV disks?
    Are they 370mm like the brembos or are they different

    Also where’s your sense of adventure @dgp? Go fast stop later lol

    I think I’ll do the brakes and suspension first then start with the go fast bits.

    Back on 2003, I had a 303RWKW VY SS Ute with standard brakes and no traction control. Great fun, but very under braked.

    Why do most of @woooo post seem to be in a different language early on in this thread??

    Can anyone remember the part number for the front caliper bolts? And the HSV rear dust covers?

    I have the paperwork from Holden at home let me see tonight. Rear dust shields why would you want them? I mean your choice.

    Cheers @woooo and I thought the rear dust shields on ss/ssv (non redline) need trimming or you can get some hsv ones that fit the new brakes?

    Hey @woooo your pics not working.
    Also are the rotors the same for the CTS-V 6pots and the hsv 6pots?
    I think the hsv ones are 390mm x36mm

    Bump
    Reading through this thread suggest I need 370mm front discs but if you google what the CTS-V has in the US its a 390mm disc.
    and what size are the rear discs? 355 or 360mm
    also I'm still having trouble viewing @woooo posts this is what I see

    Hi Mat , the 6 pot I have are 370mm , which I got from Empire Performance , I'm not sure exactly what version they are but there may be differences between models , the rears of this set do specify a 355mm ,I think they offer a 350mm with the set and advise to trim 5mm off the outer edge of the pads but I used a 360mm only because the DBA rotors don't come in a 355mm therefore the pads wear the disc 6mm short of the outer edge of the disc .
    The Redline rear Brenbo's do use a 360mm disc as standard and I think they must be different to the ones offered on ebay .
    Hope that make more sense than the ancient latin woooo used

    Ok so unfortunately DBA don’t do the wave rotors for commodores.
    Can the guys that have fitted these brakes post the DBA part numbers please?

    So the CTS-V 6 piston brakes do technically fit behind standard SSV wheels but the clearance between brake caliper and back of wheel spokes is less the a bees dick.

    The wheel dose spin without touching but it’s way to close So unfortunately the brake upgrade is on hold till I a new set of wheels and back from New York in feb.

    Wheels are going to be Koya SF10 front are going to be 8.5”x 19” with 45 offset which should give 3mm clearance between spoken caliper. Rears I haven’t decided on size yet but I’m thinking I’ll go 9.5” x 19”

    Yeah. Poor little dick bee. Always having his little bee dick compared to small stuff. Must have been unchubbed I guess? I bet the queen gives him grief. Such whores those queen bees.
