on my DD I broke my ABS sensor, have not had ABS for a while now and dont really need it. I mean I would need it IF I put myself in the position to have to slam on my brakes. But I think 80% of it is just praticing good driving. Im going to get it fixed though, but for a track car yank that sucker out =P

But GDP I like ABS. Na I really don't need it anyway I have great braking habbits and do pretty much the same thing any way but i do like some advantages of ABS and the system is there plus this will be a daily driver and I never know when i'll be driving in the snow again.

Well Check out the new parts I pulled them this morning and a little prep and paint and they look great!




Full aluminum spindles they way nothing compared to the stock ones plus this system will move the ABS reluctor from the axle to the bearing.

I cleaned them in a Ozzie bath then used a diegrinder with a wire wheel then a little crome paint to cover any dark area's they looked pretty new before the paint that just finished it off nicely

Just scored GD7005 EBC black slotted and dimpled rotors for 90.00 retail is 183.99. Just need calipers, axles and brake lines. Lines are cheaper the axles shoudn't cost me anything and calipers are resonable.
