Great write up! Its nice to finally have one post with all the required parts for anyone in the future who is thinking of this upgrade. Again, awesome job!
Got them from kia001. That is his website.Thanks krh2. Do you know of anywhere else other than rg500 that may have the hub ring spacers? I just got some 08 calipers an rotors an wanna install them ASAP or if anyone has a spare set laying around please sell them to me.
Thx, I just posted what I wish I had before diving in. My first brake job ever, and it took more than a few Coors lights to get the courage up. lolGreat job krh2!
Thanks for going the extra mile to illustrate the process!
It was! Lmfao...Great write up an lots of great pics. I'll bet the write up was more work than the brakes.
The guy stopped making them a while ago. However, I remember a thread where someone put the 08 hubs into a 04-07 spindle and they fit (no need for the spacer).i need some spacer rings who has them for sell?
I got a set from chevymanrc, he had some made a couple of months ago. He may have some left over, just pm him and ask.The guy stopped making them a while ago. However, I remember a thread where someone put the 08 hubs into a 04-07 spindle and they fit (no need for the spacer).
Your welcome. I haven't yet, I've got the calipers, the spacers, extended stainless brakelines should be here in a day or two, and ordering the rotors and pads when I get paid Friday. So hopefully next week I will be doing the install.Thanks CJ,,, you ever install your upgraded brakes??? Bstephens i still have a set left over from the batch i made, PM me if you are interested... Thanks
Yes they are factory calipers from another member on here. I bought the rotors and pads from brakemotive on eBay, they use Powerstop pads. The rings fit real good and snug. I really appreciate you getting those made for us!That's an awesome price CJ,, you running factory calipers?? Also what brand rotors and how did the rings fit? That was my main concern all along with so many different brands and possibly different tolerances per each company.

You can't go bigger, but you can go better. There are a bunch of aftermarket rotors and pads that will be better than stock. Stillen, Frozen Rotors, Brakemotive, etc.Is there an upgrade for those with the 04 and 17 inch wheel? I have the 4x4 OR
