Standard calipers in the rear and standard rotors all round. I,m taking the dustcaps off in the rear for better cooling. In the front i will take out the foglights and will make 2 hoses for cooling the front brakes. That should be more then enough for now

So all you need is adapter brackets to fit the calipers to your struts?

not even that just have to slightly modify the holes in the caliper. You can do that with a grinder takes some time to get it right. I diden,t finish the job because the left caliper was stuck. I hate to brake things off so i just sprayed it with pb blaster en hope it will come off next week.
