315mm Rotors and Calipers on SWB OMG FTW
« on: June 08, 2018, 07:41:27 PM »
So
Many ask
Many search
Many advise
Im bitting the Bullit

I went ahead and ordered through RockAuto the rotors and Calipers

Why you ask
Well simple
I could of found the brackets at a Pull and Pay
And reused my existing Calipers
La la la la ....

Its easier for me to either call, click and order
This comming Sunday June 10th
I will be in the garage installing them on a 1989 SWB V6 Montero
I have already been rolling on Toyota Tacoma 16" Steelies
And i have a 2" spacer

Tires are 265-75 R16 if anyone needs sizes

Here are pictures of the parts and part numbers
                          DISCLAIMER
***** Just one thing i will not be replacing is the Backing Plate, Why?  I have a grinder .... i like useing said grinder. I bought it with those intentions, To use it. If you are an engineer and are going to tell me that the purpose of the backing plate is for Baby Unicorns to fully develope there anal Skittle Glands .... Do me a Favor and find the Hello Kitty Page and Hang yourself from one of her wiskers .......********

If it's any help...

Here is the write up I did when I put on larger rotors.   I didn't do the full blown 315mm ones, but same concept.

Excellent information! thank you, guys.

Toasty,

Is the big backing plate you used from the Montero sport? so no mod was needed, correct?

Thank!
