Just a quick comment here... the calipers on my 2008 G6 are soo user friendly! I'm used to working on older vehicles and it was never this easy to get them off or back on again. Good to see GM has made things easier for shade tree mechanics like myself.

I found the front calipers on my 2006 G6 GT quite bothersome compared to other vehicles I own. If I recall there was a large bolt holding the caliper in place, plus the two hex bolts. It was 1.5 years ago when I did the front brakes and the first vehicle I needed to use a breaker bar on to nudge that bolt loose. It was at least a 1/2" bolt. On my Ford Taurus and Dodge Durango there are no additional bolts on the caliper, just the two hex bolts holding the caliper on over the rotor.

I changed the brakes on my 72 Cadillac hearse not too long ago. I didn't have much trouble with the front brakes. The rear shoes on the other hand, lol.
