    And now have Hawks HPS pads on order through stranos. lets see how long it take for it to get here through APO lol.
    Everything is ordered or aquired, now the waiting game to get it done lol Install will be soon.
    Oh while im at it, would this be a good tie to replace parking brake shoes or not really a concern. if it has pad on it leave it or since its a 12 year old car, maybe time for some new ones. (auto4 by the way)
    ANd for stainless lines, for a 98 TA, which lines would i get? with traction control or without traction control ones? Im guessing with out, im pretty sure i have a 3 channel, i gotta get under and look but any help would be nice.

    Just ordered some Lower control relocation brackets. figure i get em since they are cheap and easy to install. will need them anyway when i lower the car eventually. Wish i wasin the states right now. My stuff would come in alot faster.

    I've got our (6LE Designs) C5 brake updgrade kit....god it's awesome! I know 3 other guys with it and they all have GREAT things to say. Our kit comes with 2 front rotors, and 2, 1 piece brackets. You can feel the difference as soon as it's installed.

    I did see those and was tempted, but i think you have to modify your spindal with those dont you? THe ones i got dont. they arnt one piece, but they will do for now. they also only cost me $100 through ebay. and even better the rotors were free from my dad nothiung better then free (except being paid for it lol)

    You DO NOT have to cut your spindle with our kit. The whole install is about as easy as changing your brakes. Whole install should take no more than an hour and a half....if you're slow. It's a nice upgrade that you'll feel right away. You're gonna love yours, Josh!
