rotors are easy.

1) Jack up car and remove wheel
2) remove two bolts holding caliper to hub, hang with string or zip ties (or anything) to prevent caliper from hanging from hose.
3) remove set screw and pop rotor off
4) install new rotor and set screw (anti-seize is good here)
5) push caliper pistons back into caliper
6) slide caliper over new rotor, tighten two bolts
7) re-install wheel and pump brake pedal a few times to tighten the pads back up to the rotor
torque you lugs! 100 ft/lbs should do.


havn't done the anti roll bars before but i hear the front one is a PITA.

I was very close to buying the dimpled & slotted rotors for my '05, but I went with their regular parts instead. I couldn't justify spending the extra money for looks.

I'm happy so far, but they've only been installed for a couple months.

Price was excellent, though!

So i am planning on taking out my turbo to send out for rebuild. What is the most efficient way to remove it and should i purchase new oil lines? also what else should i look at when i take it out?

depends on what turbo you have and what hardware as well.

if you have the g17 i would upgrade to the TD04, however you will need the matching lines.

you could always go with a 18t or 19t if you get ahold of a 9000Aero TD04, however that will require DP, injectors, and tune to make it run. catback, intake, and intercooler to make it run well.

its reletivly easy to drop the turbo right out, look for stx right up on nesaaab.org
