I am getting ready to do the install on my car this weekend and was wondering if anyone had any advice or knew of a good website with instructions. i have limited experience with brakes and was just looking for a little help. Was there something that you wish you knew or did differently when you installed yours? Thanks in advance guys.

Just remember that everything fits flush with the spindle..The Strange hub and the supplied brake mount has to fit together and flush up against the factory spindle for everything else to line up..

Also on my car I only had to remove the top mounting pad for the original caliper..I left the bottom one on but had to take a grinder to the face of it a little..Some people take both of them off..

Thats about the only hard part to the install, like the guy above said make sure everything is flush, also dont forget the shims when bolting the caliper to the bracket to make sure the caliper is centered over the disk, my fronts didnt require any shims, but my backs did.

shims??? what size is good to have on hand? i did get some spacers made for the rear (12 bolt) if that is what you are refering to.

The shims came with the brake kit at least they did with mine..They center the caliper on the brake disk..
