WOW. I hoped for some long post but I just dont have anything else to say....cant wait to see it installed!


I know mine is nothing compared with this but it sure works better than stock. What pads did it come with? The oens that came with mine are pretty average.

Again, probably apples vs gold plated oranges comparison, but mine has "feel" that just was not there with the stock caliper.

I have that same 0% account...hum......Then again, a person cant run the rear caliper you have without the good front calipers. That would look stupid. I would need both.
