    well since the caliper brackets are already there, i guess i could just find the same size rotor with that bolt pattern, or re drill them. do the 5x114.3 grand am hubs have the same wheel speed sensors as the 5x110?

    Ok thats right the bracket is independent of the hub assembly,So then rotor will be the next thing, I have no clue about the grand ams, being as common a bolt pattern it is, finding a rotor shouldn't be too hard.

    So where is the caliper bracket attached to on yours?
    reason im asking is if its attached to something removable, maybe thats an easy swap for a disc conversion in place of drums...
