V6 to SS brake conversion question

Is it worth keeping the front calpier weights? I am planning use plenty of brake lube as recommened in another thread.

If not needed I would remove them before painting.

Great information through out this forum.

Thank you
David

Are you talking about the weights on the (early) calipers themselves or the "roller skate" weights on the Brembo brake pads?

If it's the pad weights then you might as well keep them until you replace the pads.

I heard the 2010 calipers had weights that haven't been used on subsequent models.
