    97 rotors and brake pads

    I bought these items a few years back I believe for my 97 trans am. I now own a 98 but as far as my knowledge serves me they do not fit on the 98. I brought it into a shop to verify and they said the same thing.

    So I'm curious what model these may be? What can they fit on? And how much can I sell these for? Any suggestions would be great!

    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    DO you remember where you got them form? Any part numbers? If you got them form a local parts store you should be able to take them to them and cross reference the part numbers to see what other cars they use them on.


    LT1 f body cars = 93'-97'

    If looking for a quick sell post on ebay or any LT1 forums and offer a good price.

    Actually there isn't. I find it extremely odd too that there isn't a single code or name or anything on that box with the pads in it

    I'll try and look through some old receipts I have. Perhaps I'll get lucky and find something.

    I think the pads will fit but not the rotors. You can look up those specs online.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

    Sorry but it'd help if someone suggested a website. Not really sure how I can compare specs if all i know is what it looks like and maybe measurements. Or is this all I need?

    I know some of you hate people who "don't get it" and yell to search search search..But I've tried looking online and all the rotors for that year's brand look the same or VERY similar. I'm also positive when i purchased these that they were a top brand as that's often how I purchase things. Quality over price.

    Also, It's winter..and cold..and I wont be driving her much but i've had grinding in the back for a month or so. Pretty sure it's bearings wearing down but not sure. :/ (not the brakes cause I just did them this summer)

    Being that almost every blank rotor looks the same, I would suggest just going off the measurement of the rotor. Rotor specs online will tell you the diameter of the rotor, hub, and bolt hole pattern.

    You'll also need to check the thickness and depth to be sure.
