I am using Wilwood 4 piston calipers. I actually just finished the install with the help of the boys. I ended up using a 5mm spacer. I am going to order some longer wheel studs next week somtime. I do not feel to safe running the OEM studs. They seem a little short.


Thanks for the replies guys. I honestly was under the impression that the rims would fit without a spacer. Man even with the spacer in place it is a tight fit.

I would definitely NOT do any aggressive driving if you are using the stock wheel studs. I am running the Forged Dynalites with Coleman Racing 2-piece 11" rotors (aluminum hat) under my B14 "SE-L" rims using H&R 5mm spacers which came with longer wheel studs.

You should just give me the brakes then, I've already got longer studs... ;)

Looks good, I'm jealous!

Well guys today I tried to move the car for the first time since the install and the car barely moved. Somthing is not right :(

I took a closer look and realized that the caliper is hitting on the outside of the rotor right on the edges :(. These brakes are really getting to me. I feel I should just stick with the NX2K's.

By chance does anyone have a detailed write up or pictures of how to properly install these? I usually figure **** out for myself but, as many of you know I am moving to Ohio and I leave in a few days. Time is very limited and I have alot of other thinsg to worry about.

Any help would be great. Also any help on how to properly bleed these things would be great. TIA!

Worst case, take them off and I can give you a hand when you get here.

I am going to give it one more shot tonight. My boy Lance has a set of Wilwoods on his B13 so I am going to compare and make sure I am doing this right.

If not when I get to Ohio I will mess around with it a little more and will take you up on your offer. Geekout! and Blair's place!! :biggthump

Let me know how it goes. I've got a question out to my racer contacts about bleeding the calipers too.
