Default Rogue.....GP Brakes??

so we (the club) have never determined that the GP Brakes will work on the H bodies...

im taking the idea from your PB thread that the 00+ can use the GP brakes, and i ask this not to use the smaller brakes for the Bonneville, but the big brake upgrade that the GP'* use, or the F body upgrade....

to me this seems possible but has never been confirmed offically....

All Rogue has to do to use the 11" brakes from the GPs is to use smaller rotors and the caliper bracket from the GP.

Cheers,

Dunno if it helps, but this weekend I successfully upgraded brakes on my E-body using '97 Aurora parts. Rears are now 11'', up from 10'', fronts are 12'', up from 10.8''.

Plenty of pix and info above.

Keep in mind you need to maintain the front/rear bias of the brakes.

If the bias moves too much to the front the rears will do little to nothing and the fronts will tend to overheat and fade.

I fthe bias is moved to the rear too much the rears will lock before the fronts and the car will want to switch ends.
