Never heard of that being done here. If it bolts up , why not? Do you have a set just hanging around?

No, The GXP has very large brakes that just fit in it'* 18 inch wheels and specially designed 17 inch spare, but they are not dual piston. The GXP has its own suspension, designated FE5. I dont believe it shares those parts with any other make or model.

brake warehouse.com shows the brakes on the gxp as having dual piston calipers and 12.72'' rotors and i do believe thats the same as the caddy, i just want to know if i can make these brakes work on my car. oh , the caddy had 17'' wheels also
