That's what I thought! I have the same ones too. Looks like I'll be giving Kyle a call here soon! Thanks for the info Brett.

Only four socket head bolts and four washers - to secure the brackets to the spindles (2 per side) - nothing to secure the caliper to the bracket.

Growing pains with a new kit with so many pieces. As long as it all gets here, it's all good

BMR has excellent cust. service, and is why I've bought parts from them for almost 10 years. We've been doing a lot of back and forth that you don't see here, but it's always positive.

I agree, BMR has been very good to me. They listen when I have a question or even a suggestion, and don't treat me like a dummy!!! Considering their customer service and comparatively good prices, it's no wonder I have all this red stuff under my car....and looking to get some more!!!

Agreed. I didn't go with this kit, but I have a LOT of their other parts, and their service has been top notch the whole way.

Old design on left, new on right. New design is around 33% thicker, probably due to less strength in the general design to maximize clearance. You can see how much physically smaller the end of the arm is, to give maximum wheel barrel clearance. The swaybar spacers they included were perfect, will bolt the rest of this on tonight. Just waiting on the shocks to show from strange now...

Sorry for shitty cameraphone.




Rotor hats should be drilled/countersunk for the tapered locating bolt the stock rotors use, as they can wobble around while assembled. Obviously they are held in place by the wheels when the wheels are bolted on, but the fit would be more precise if they were located. Brett@BMR said he is going to have that done in the future, after I suggested it.

Will bleed them out tomorrow, everything seems to fit great... certainly a crapton lighter then the stock style designs... very impressed so far.

Looks great!!! And idea when your shocks are coming in??? Interested to hear you impressions on the performance of these shocks. I sold my BMR adjustable LCA's and my 1st Gen Pfadt coilovers (single adjustable) to change to this suspension set-up.....I hope I didn't just do a downgrade!?!?!? Just doing the suspension for now.....brakes will have to come later when my money tree bears fruit again....someday!!!

SWEET!!!! But for the price, you'd think they would at least come with the required spanner wrenches!?!?!?

Did they come with the thust bearings that go under the spring seats? You would install those at the top, right???

Cutting these to fit the spring pocket was a little pain, but only took a couple minutes with the die grinder and a football burr. Hate the metal shards everywhere, damn things always get stuck in my shoes or hands. Onto the other side, got to mityvac the brakes, and then will go out for a ride (if ride height is close enough)



Oh, and BMR you should mark the shock mounts L and R, lol. Had to look at them for 10 minutes like a dumbass before I figured which was which.

What exactly did you have to grind down, the upper shock mount plates??? I thought these were supposed to fit without any required modification!?!?!? This must be a fitment problem that hopefully BMR will straighten out, or at least I hope so!!!

No, the parts are fine, you have to make two very small cuts to the chassis inside where the stock shock mounts... like 1/4", just so the new shock mount plates can sit in there. It's very minor, and part of the instructions.
