Passenger 57 bump yet another question

srp Yes it is a drum... But it uses the hat of the rotor for the drum.
No modification neccesary for the e-brake.

I thought the calipers were the same as he had anyway
All he needs is the larger rotors and the claiper bracket.

mike saunders I don't know that the front calipers will bolt up, but it's worth trying....

You can always sell them and recoup some of the outlay.

....and the GS brake lines are essential for doing this the right way. I flared my existing brake lines and made them fit, but I was never happy with that. In the end, $60 is cheap money for peace of mind.

Passenger 57 thats everything, fronts & rears
07-21-2008 02:21 PM
mike saunders 115 is a typo, right?

Or is that for all four calipers, pads and rotors?

2. Will my set of goodridge steel braided brake lines work with these brakes?

3. What kind of brake fluid should I use and where can I get it??


Thanks!!

Passenger 57 Word!!
07-21-2008 08:40 AM
srp You got it!
07-21-2008 08:34 AM
Passenger 57 6 lines!!??

Ok let me get this straight, check out the pic



So the goodridge line replaces the line in the yellow circle, correct???

The GS line replaces the line in the red circle???

Is that right??

Thanks to Dip for the great pics.

srp Those stainless lines go from the "frame rail" to the rear axle. Nick's teflon coated stainless lines go from the rear axle to the caliper.

NO.. It is additional instead of replacement.. You will have 6 lines like a 9-5 now with the 300mm

Tweek's Turbos You will need brake pads too.

Stainless lines from Goodrich work with them.

You will need the flexi stainless lines Nick sells.

You will need to cut the stock dust shields.

You will need the larger rotors.
