    UPS guy came Thurs.

    Gonna do the pads, rotors, ss hoses and paint the calipers (black), hopefully have some time next weekend. I've done plenty of brakes before just not on an f-body seems pretty straightforward anything I need to watch out for? Also looking thru the Haynes manual its says to bleed the abs modulator first, why? just curious. And before anyone asks here is a picture

    Where did you buy the EBC pads from? What kind of rotor are those? Look like nice set up!

    I know that feeling, I've been waiting on new wheels for 3 weeks now. Hopefully we both will get our stuff next week.

    lets hope you get them, waitng for stuff sucks!!!!!!

    Had some time so I did my brakes today, pretty easy the only bit of trouble I had was starting the bolt on the ss line that bolts to the axle where it splits to the 2 rear lines not much room up their for my hands, damn sure could'nt get my head up their to see.
    Left the car up on the jackstands, my sfc's are supposed to be here tomorrow, we shall see, still no wheels, was told they'd be here today, guess its time for another phone call, not so polite this time.

    probably don't need it everything seems to be working fine, from the best I can tell on the stands, the abs light didn't come on and the brakes stop the wheels when I spin them. Find out for sure tomorrow, road test, maybe.

    well If u do just caliper and normal brake bleed it should be ok if you mess with the abs modulator or something on that lines to get air in the abs system then a scan tool is required

    That sucks, got mine done today, almost forgot what its like to have good brakes. Just a little advice make sure the car is high enough for the torque wrench to fit between the ground and the bolt on the back of the sfc missed it by 1/2 an inch.
