or will it not work?

Probably not. Cobra rotors with new pads maybe to thick for the caliper to fit over. I did not try on my car so it may fit but like I said when I pulled the gt rotor off the first thing I saw was how thin the gt rotor it was compaired to the cobra rotor

got the caliper on using my worn down GT pads, hopefully this will be fine for a month or so





Didnt bother painting them because i will order some cobra rear calipers soon and clean/paint those.

now i cant get the pasenger side caliper piston to spin back into place so tomorrow i am going to rent the good set of tools instead of the little cube thing.

how far did you have to turn the caliper in to clear the new thicker rotors.

4 turns or so

it almost fit without turning it at all, i could have probably hammered it on but i didnt want to damage anything.

With 4 turns there is about a 1/4" space between the piston and the pad so i think once i hit the brakes it should be fine.

i dont think it would fit with the new pads but i did not try.

I will just buy a set of cobra calipers and put them on when i put on my SS lines and Bullitt front calipers.

Ok i got it all done

is it normal for the girdle to be this close the the spare tire well?



the exhaust rubs the tires without the spacers



and thats how the sway bar is supposed to sit right?



I think i need to raise the control arm adjuster a fair bit, its sitting quite low

man i forgot to tell you your probably going to need shorter studs to fit the spacers. but it looks good. the car is alittle low so you might want to check to see how much room you have on the bump stop. also the diff cover is close but its probably just how low your car is.

The studs on the axle fit perfectly into te recesses in the wheels.

I am raising the car a bit because it's too low for the street. I have adjustable LCAs so I just have to play around with them until I get the right height. Raising should also make the diff girdle not hit.

Ok i got the spacers on, no rubbing

raised it up a bit

and ive driven it around for a few miles

however, every so often it makes a noise simmilar to if you drove over some debris on the road and kicked it up under the car.

It does not make this noise with the brakes applied.

Im not really sure what it could be.
