I used prothane mounts (partially) in my old neon. You could put all of the inserts in or some of them. Even with only 1/2 of the prothane mounts in, they are rock hard, once installed & you'll...

Congrats Topless. I am curious, however, how you can be ripping up on ramps @ 125 mph since the PCM (both stock & stage one) are electronically limited to 120 mph. Do you have some way to override...

I doubt that they are interchangeable; the GT's front and rear are disk (larger in the front) & front caliper. Since the rotor is larger, the mounting location & pads would be different from non-GT...
