However, that car has different upgraded 6/4 pot calipers and rotors and also utilizes a stud conversion kit.
The GTS (and presumably CRT) has a 5mm spacer on the front to clear the upgraded suspension. Not sure how they got a 5mm spacer to fit. I have the exact same pair, but haven't tried installing them given the fitment issues.
