I saw this and thought about it for the viggen. I can get the calipers for $150 used, so it may be in the works.

Are these the right Part Nos
( from the SC thread) Left: 25900763
Right:25900764

And if your pads don't come with the hardware kit here is the OE hardware part #:25900781

In that thread they quote gmpartsdirect as 186 shipped ( I confirmed this price for THESE part numbers) on thier site

If they are the correct ones that would make the set up 500 total nice deal for Brembos.

Tweek, what year model colbolt are those from is the TC version JL9??? Looking for them used.

Basically any 09 and probably up cobalt or HHR SS. Be quicik, non brembo'd Cobalts, HHRs, 9-3SS and 9-5s are looking to do this.

I think that is a very cool modification. You stated the only issue with the front is the dust shield correct ? That means you could use a later model dust shield on the older 9-5's ? The rotor offset should be the same ? I'm also wondering how economical the calipers would be once a recycle yard identifies them as Brembo calipers ? What calipers are on the back of the SS Colbalt ?

Dust shield is not a fitment for 06-09 9-5s, and didn't seem to be on SC for the 9-3ss guys.

Not without alot of work.

NO! just because the diameter and rotor are the same doesn't make this a direct fit. The spacing between the caliper mounts are diff. you need the spindle that comes on the 9-3ss and the 02 and up 9-5s. Remember how viggen brake upgrades can use the 99-01 Aero front brakes. There is a reason why it only goes to 01. Starting at 02 the 9-5 became more 9-3ss ish and less c9-3ish.

Best of luck, you will need alot of custom work.

mike saunders 05-04-2011 08:31 AM

There are two types of attachment: tab mount, with two tabs extending under the caliper body, and radial mount, which bolts into the caliper body.

Getting tab-mounted Brembos like these to fit a Viggen is tough because the bolt spacing between the tabs is different.

But...you can use radial-mount Brembos from any non-turbo Porsche 993 and have a custom bracket made. Nick T at GenuineSaab might still have the plans for them.

I have added a pic of the rotors and calipers hung, but not plumbed.

Looks really nice - are those struts rusting up that much already? Did you get the mounting situation figured out then?

Tweek's Turbos 05-04-2011 10:28 AM

I am going to order 10mm H&R spacers with 10mm longer lug bolts. And cross my fingers.

srp 05-04-2011 10:33 AM

Why not just grab a few flat washers and put enough on so you have clearance then measure the thickness of the combined flat washers.

Cark 05-04-2011 10:34 AM

looking good! I know it woulda been extra $$$ but why not go with slotted and/or drilled rotors? Then you would have a really incredibly badass looking setup that would probably make your guts come out your mouth onto the steering wheel when you hit the middle pedal.

cking1975 05-04-2011 10:45 AM

Personally, I hate slotted roters. In my experience the only slotted rotors that actually work are super $$$$. I use to do track events all the time and the only rotors that would not warp on me were the Brembo OE style, I even recently bought EBC rottors and guess what ? The suck and warped !

That setup looks really nice and will be rust free. One thing to do it make sure you keep the calipers clean, I had a Porsche 944S2 with Brembos all around and the person before me did not take care of the calipers. The aluminum had deteriorated do to the salt on the roads during the winter. Really is a little lame that GM did not use Brembos on the rear, of course most of the stopping is done in the front.

Tweek's Turbos 05-04-2011 10:50 AM

Since I have extra time now, I will order black caliper paint, and new brembo stickers.

Budget.

cking1975 05-04-2011 10:54 AM

Nice

Is there a part number on those calipers ? I would be interested to see if they are a multiple application part for GM.

Behold, jssaab is a prophet, he knew you would ask before you asked so he posted in the past.

* 93175606 is the Saab P/n for the 314mm rotors. You don't want the 315mm ones from the Cobalt SS.

Jack Straw 05-04-2011 12:50 PM

Is it me or does it look like those calipers were designed to be used with a slightly smaller rotor than the one in the picture? Looks like they are sitting a little far out on rotor?
