2007 Pontiac G5 Rebuild and Powder Coated Front Calipers

Name: Jason (rains_crusader)
Location: Angola, IN
Means of Contact: PM

I have some rebuilt and powder-coated front calipers for sale. These came off a 5 lug, 2007 Pontiac G5 with front disc/rear drum set-up. I bought these because I'm to converting to 5 lug hubs but recently realized they aren't the same calipers as the LSJ. I already have LSJ rotors and want use those. So, I'll have to buy different calipers. I have $130 in the pair between rebuild kits($40), cost of the calipers/brackets($60) and powder coating cost($30 - I think it was actually $50 but I can't remember for sure). That works out to $65 a piece. I rebuilt these and put them on the shelf over the summer. They haven't been installed since the rebuild. There is only one small spot of out-gassing on the calipers which you can see in the close-up photo. Its not too noticeable and would probably be covered when the rims are in place.



^Here's the calipers




^Here's that small area of out-gassing

Asking for what I have in them ($130) plus shipping cost. That will vary based on your location. The further you are from Indiana, the more they will cost to ship.

These are sold as-is. If you are interested, let me know.

Thanks
Jason

No, they are a little bigger than the 4 lug caliper but smaller than the LSJ caliper.

Different size calipers use different rotors. Outside diameter of the rotors are as follows:

4 Lug base: 256 mm
5 Lug base: 280 mm (these would be the rotors needed for the calipers I'm selling)
5 Lug Performance: 296 mm

ah well that sucks, searching for calipers for the g5 doesn't bring up any difference or even any mention of 4 lug vs 5 lug on parts websites, only rear drum or rear disk..

I'm not sure. Someone else mentioned it's the same but I measured the 4 lug caliper on my Cobalt and it's different than these from the G5.
Maybe the 4 lug and 5 lug base brake systems for the G5 use the same caliper?

i would measure mine but my car isn't home... although i am wondering if the difference is just in the bracket itself... if i had the money right now i'd buy them off you, if you still have them in a week ill take them though, little experimentation and what not... worst case, ill pick up a set of 5 lug rotors and have them drilled for the 4 lug pattern... need new rotors anyways

So, it appears the caliper is the same. Like you said, It's the bracket thats different.

I pulled my wheel and compared the two side by side. The caliper itself is the same. Here's two photos of the bracket differences.


^G5 5-lug base Caliper bracket to knuckle


^Cobalt 4-lug base caliper bracket to knuckle


Looks like the 5-lug bracket is taller between the slide pin bolts and the knuckle mount bolts

Cool. I see your location is Michigan. Are you close to Indiana?

Actually I guess I'm about 4 hours from you... keep forgetting Indiana goes over that far

Ah. I was just thinking if you were close, it would save shipping cost.
