    Haven't tried many TBH, QFM HPX pads work beyond wildest expectation. Takes a while to bed in, some squeal at first 20,000k but gone now. Massive meat on the pads too BTW.

    By the suggestion of 6 pot fronts, I also meant, by default, 4 pot rears. Sorry for confusion.

    But 4x4 all 'round is still a very good setup.

    EBC Redstuff pads are very good also. They include a pre-applied bedding compound, but can still squeal for the first 1000k's or so. Very little dust too.

    A mate runs QFM HPX and loves them because he says they are quiet, very low dust. He is a fussy bugger but I haven't run them myself. I have tried Remsa and hated them due to terrible pedal feel so I stick with my tried and tested Hawk HPS which I absolutely love even though they are dusty because they perform but its horses for courses, what one person loves another hates etc.

    Thanks for the link mate, really apprecaite it!

    Apart from the calipers, discs, lines and spring kit, what else is required if I was to drop this off at the mechanics for the labour?

    I didn't replace the standard lines as there was no need. The only other kit apart from what you've listed is the pads. The mechanic will have to trim the backing plates, or alternatively fit HSV ones. They're available on fleabay for about $75.

    Labour will probably be around $300.

    You need to swap the crossover pipe and nipples on the rear as the donor vehicle has the calipers leading whereas we are fitting them trailing (they are upside down and on the wrong side). These calipers have a differential bore like most modern motorcycle brakes, means the pad surface will wear unevenly and braking will not work as intended if installed upside down.

    Pretty sure the Camaro rears are not differential bore whereas CTS-V are. Still works, not the same way, don't need to swap crossover pipe and reverse fit.

    So for the CTSV rears is it the smaller piston that is the leading piston within the caliper or the other way around?

    Smaller is leading (first, coz faster).

    ^^^ True, and a simple job when you drop it off.

    This is the end result for the fronts, needless to say you will be very happy.

    Sorry for thread dig, but saves making a new thread.

    I'm looking at buying both front and rear 4-pot brembos through Amazon but for some reason, only the drivers front and passenger rear are able to be shipepd to Australia, whereas the other calipers they won't deliver outside of the US? How did people get around this?

    Mail forward address through Aus Post is what I used.

    That's the one, looks like they changed its name. I just googled 'australia Post mail forwarding usa' and it popped up at the top.

    For what it's worth I found ebay.com (usa) as the best place to get my brembos as the individual shipping cost for all the calipers becamoe costly. A chap had a near new set of Camaro calipers with pins, pads, etc for $500 US. There are a few resellers to that have them who will sell to you. Check the Pontiac G8 forum for the name as I cannot recall off the top of my head.
