    I think you'll like em a lot Dee....I love mine. I think its a good alternative for a BBK. Gives the car a nice sports look to it. Plus it gets rid of that annoying squeal.

    I'll take more a lil later, one thing I can say is, there is no squealing! Yah!
    My wheel will have to be cleaned a lil better along w/calipers, dirty on the inside, brake removal is a bear, can you say impact wrench!

    Thanks fellas, can someone say imapct wrench! dam those bolts were a bear to say the least. I had an easy time with the rear but had to get a friend with an impact wrench to get the front off. Almost broke my hand Doc, aside from almost throwing a back out... lol...I'm happy now...no squealing!!!!! here piggy piggy said the old brake rotors...

    I have a battery impact wrench that will do 110 ftlbs, but that wasn't enough to break those bolts. So I thought of using a breaker bar, but didn't have one. But I do have a torque wrench that is longer than a breaker bar. I used that to take my calipers off of my G35. Just turn the wheel and watch out for the body work ;) It was like using a hot knife on butter :biggrin:

    Good job on your rotors, I likey.

    I thought about a battery operated Tq wrench but it wasn't gonna be worth the time or money. I had a pry/breaker bar but the bolts fought back. soaked them but to no avail they won out. until I hit them with the impact and they gave up like some b____, lol... the end result is what I now have on (new rotors). glad they are done.

    Bat operated isn't the best, but at least I have the li-ion type. It works great on the wheels. I can change those **** fast. Where I'm moving to I won't have room for air powered tools, so I went the battery route. In the end all that matters is you got them off :top:
