Nothing?

The caliper to knuckle bolts are about the only issue. Easily overcome, though.

Clean your hubs, too, and put in some new brake fluid. Other than that, it's a pretty straight forward standard brake job.

Buy my brakes and be done. They are a 05/06 kit on steroids.

I don't don't mean to be cocky or something, but what is the exact benefit you are seeking from this conversion? Is it gonna like reduce stopping distance by some figure? Or just for the sake of it as an upgrade? I'm just curious.

No your fine,1 I don't want to drop 2k+on a big bore brake system, 2 I need new rotors and a new caliper so for almost the same price of a standard brake job why not put the bigger 05 06 components on, and



I did a 10 min search and found nauda, and so it may just be the noobness

DO IT, its bolt on, and braking is improved over stock 04 brakes, nothing to loose.

Bigger rotors, also vented, two piston fronts. Its worth the small amount of money that it costs.

DBA makes some amazing brake discs and they are actually an improvement over most GM/Holden OEM applications. Not to mention, they look as cool as hell!

www.dbausa.com

I got their discs all around, and they've been serving me very well! But, just as with OEM discs, make sure you torque the bolts correctly! Otherwise, you'll just wrap them in time!

Report back to us in 8 months or so and tell us how them drilled rotors are working out for you. Please include detailed pictures of the drilled holes in each rotor so we can all be amazed at the cracks running from each hole!!!

Did the swap 3 years back after I got tired of warping the 04 rotors after a couple hard stops.

I actually used the brakmotive slotted/drilled rotors all around on my previous evo, they worked quite well actually. It was the first time I went with both options opposed to just drilled (never had problems with them either). I just recently went with drilled stop techs on my brembo swap and am as happy as ever with them too.

Many a oem applications come with drilled rotors which hold up just fine; its probably has to do more with the material grade used to manufacture them more than anything when they do crack/fail.
