SS turbo Brembo brake swap

Has anyone swaped over the Cobalt SS turbo Brembo brakes on their car? It seems like it is possible to do, but I'd like to know what all is really needed to do this. I wouldn't mind swapping over but with the cost of getting the parts from the dealer it maybe better to go with a copmplete aftermarket upgrade kit.

I'm pretty sure after looking at an 09 css, I'd be amazed if the calipers fit under the stock 17's.....lol

plus we can get just as good with the aftermarket baer's....

no, the rotors wouldn't fit behind the rims... we have trouble finding rims that will clear the rotors, which royally blows a lot of donkey dick

I am almost sure the TC Brembo's fit under the RL wheels. That is what I have read elsewhere....

From what I have seen I am sure the 17s will work. The only thing may be the distance from back of the wheel face and the caliper. Wheel spacers could take care of that as long as there ins't too much of an offset difference between our wheels and the SS TC

Yep, apparently our 17"s have more clearance than ss/sc 18"s
How much $ are the ss/tc front brakes?
