We can also do the above kit with Forged 4-piston calipers instead of the Billet 6-piston for $1095 per pair.
NOW ALSO AVAILABLE WITH 13 INCH DRILLED/SLOTTED/ZINC PLATED ROTORS.
Here's a typical install:
Support the car securely on jack stands and remove the wheels
Unbolt and remove the stock caliper.
Remove the original rotor.
Remove the hub.
remove (3 phillips head screws) and discard the backing plate.
Reinstall the stock hub and bearings etc ( clean the rotor mounting surface ).
Bolt on the new caliper bracket as shown , DO NOT PUT A LOCK WASHER UNDER THE HEAD OF THE BOLT , only the thin flat washer.
Place the rotor onto the hub and temporarily retain it with 1 or 2 lug nuts.
Screw the fluid inlet fitting into the caliper. (I put a couple of layers of teflon tape on the threads of the fitting before screwing it into the caliper)
Bolt the caliper to the bracket with the supplied bolts.
Connect the brake line from the
caliper to the chassis and bleed thoroughly. A little bit of air in the
system will seriously degrade braking performance.
Note: both bleeders on each caliper must be bled.
Check for any interference between the new brakes and the stock suspension, wheels etc.
Thoroughly check the entire system before driving, inspect (and correct) for any interference between the rotors and suspension, the calipers and wheel, the bolt heads etc. Check for leaks! and degrease the rotors.
Please note: although they may fit some aftermarket 16" wheels we recommend 17" or larger.
