I think you would have to buy the stock hub/bearings & other stuff from a scrap yard & then put new parts on them.

That's some big cash & a fair bit of work. If I were in your shoes, I'd take that money & put it down on the car loan & then in the spring go pick yourself up an '05 GTS.

ya do it, id do it if i had the money...

atleast you could do a bigger brake package up front... the rears dont matter much unless you have abs...

looks yes, but who cares about that if they arent functional...

i want bigger roters up front... sloted or punched...

i dont think i need it, but it would look cool, and increase braking performace GOD DAMN (i love that song!)

i did it, it only cost me 300 bucks, i bought off of a fellow wrecked gts, it was such an easy install, all you need is the the left and right rear brake assembly and the ebrake cable, thats it, its all the same from there, i drive a 2000 gt so if anyone has question let me know, cheapest mod for the best results i say
