    I have done the fronts, rear you can't do without a special bracket and no one sells one at the moment so it would have to be fabbed. It was about $600-800 dollars. You need the calipers, custom brake lines, 06+ Z06 rotors, and possibly a spacer for each wheel. You need 18"+ wheels too.

    Because of the 18" wheel requirement most do a C5 conversion front and stick with stock rear for the same amount. Putting on 18" wheel up front doesn't leave much sidewall for the tire.

    I personally would do the CTS-V calipers over the c5, unless you have to buy new wheels for it because you don't have 18s. It came out cheaper for me than the c5 conversion but I already had big enough wheels. Rolling the finders helps with having more room for the side wall on 18"+ wheels.

    Custom lines from flynbye.com. The item # for the lines are: #4GCTSVLines. Also you are going to need 4 m12 aluminum washers. Let me know if you need any guidance on the swap.
