Here you are. CTS-V calipers. See if I can't get these mocked up this weekend They are a little scratched up being tossed around in a bin. I bought them off of a guy at work.

I check the bolt spread to the stock calipers and it matches up but I have a feeling I am going to need to extend them out from the knuckle a bit.

There are a few threads out there with people attempting to use these calipers on DSMs. So far I haven't seem anyone pull it off completely or at least update their threads if they did. Yes, the bolt spacing is the same but offset seems to be way off and when offset is corrected, the rotors seem to be an issue.

Hopefully you can get passed this and figure out an easy way to make it work. I've wanted to pay with these myself for a while now but have yet to try. Good luck and post your findings!

I'd be interested to see which type of wheel offset would be need to clear that setup. When bolting them to the hub without modification, the caliper sits roughly 0.5" farther out towards the wheel than an evo brembo caliper.
Has anyone bought this kit?

I can't imagine they stick out any farther than the 3KGT calipers.

If its the case of just wheel spacers this is going to be easy peasy. Thanks for the link. This might work out better than I had thought.

One of the best fields you can get into right now. There are so many jobs out there its unreal. I could have 3 or 4 jobs tomorrow if I wanted. Also you can make very good money doing it.

Let's not forget the ability to make nearly any custom part you desire. I can't wait to see your build finished.

They definitely do.

Wheel spacers will most likely be needed, which isn't an issue to me depending on how much of a spacer is needed. When you start getting a lot of wheel poke and having to add camber, etc just to fit a set of calipers is when I start looking at other alternatives.

Best of luck and keep this thread updated!

I got some hardware for the calipers and mounted them up. I am going to order wheel bearings and grab an Evo rotor and my Evo enkeis and mock this up to make sure what offsets I need to do and get something made up.

Once I have everything figured out on these I will probably do a How-to on this set up with all the parts needed. This will be great consindering they are much cheaper than the evo brembos and are pretty much the same set up.

Now I just need to figure out the rear brake setup on these cars.

OE Evo 8/9 rotors. I put the wheel bearings and seals in last night. I did some measurements off of a stock Evo 8/9 hub and knuckle and right now it looks like im going to need a .07 spacer between the rotor and hub but i am going to get a set of rotors and confirm this. I also checked clearance between the caliper and Evo 8 enkeis and it looks like it will have no problem clearing.

Pretty sure Evo 5-9 rotors won't work with the CTSV calipers, like I said before, it needs a larger diameter rotor to get the right contact patch for the pads. Plus the kit has already been made: click

So am I interpreting this picture correctly? The mount spacing of the caliper is identical to a GVR4/1g knuckle spacing?

I personally wouldn't trust any seller that can't differentiate between "brake kit" and "break kit" on what looks like a company website.
