I have a set that are on my regal. I'm in the process of demodding it for the fiero build. I haven't seen anything about you guys being able to use them. If I can use them I'll save them otherwise I'll sell them off too.

Thanks guys

Are you guys using them on the front or rear? All fours? Just wondering. It might not even be an option for me since I would ideally like to have 15" welds on all fours

When researching calipers for doublec4's front C5 brackets, what I believe I learned is that 4th gen f-body, c5, and c6 calipers are all essentially interchangeable - the same dimensions. What changes is the piston sizes and pad carriers, and in some cases the structural design, but they'll all similar.

the abuntment bracket is shorter on the c5 setup, but the caliper itself is interchangeable. Brake overstock has the LS calipers and brackets powder coated red for $145pr and gm parts direct has the c5 abuntment brackets for like $35 each, My brackets were made by Purple reighn and made for the LS calipers.
The older CTS-V calipers that are 4 piston are interchangeable with the LS caliper but the " bracket" and caliper is all one piece but bolts in place of the LS calipers
