    I'm about to do the brakes on my TTA and thought I read somewhere that they are not the same pads and rotors as the trans am, but according to the parts store, they are. Are they the same or what do I have to look for? Thanks.

    The front has the 1LE brakes on it. The rotors and calipers are definitely different from regular Trans Ams, so I believe the pads are as well

    Awesome, thank you. Are they the 1le brakes or the same as the rest of the ta's?

    Nm, just saw the post above yours. Are the rears the same or different than other ta's?

    I got my 1le brake rotors from prostop (cross drilled and slotted) for 300.00 dollars no pads.

    Can anyone direct me to a set of front calipers? Re-manufactured are fine, as I want to keep my costs down. Thanks in advance.

    To follow up: I found front calipers for the performance package.
    A1 Cardone 184344 (GM 10132827) & 184343 (GM 10132828) or
    Raybestos FRC 10170 (GM 10132827) & FRC 10169 (GM 10132828)
    Both brands are re-manufactured and are in the $50-$60 price range (each) after core return.
