first I bought these, st205 calipers, rotors, lines.



then to make them bolt on, I shaved off a few mm from the mounting points





remove old pads and hardware and give a quick paint job





then got new pads, shim kit, pins, ect



and installed in the calipers



next step is
1. getting the 205 rotors trimmed from 315mm to 298mm
2. getting spacers, either 10mm or 15mm (I need to test/measure, then install them)
3. bolt on (I'm not sure if I'm gonna tap my hub or use nuts/bolts), bleed lines, drive

I'll update as I get things done.

no I don't want GT rotors for GT-Four brakes because they don't fit, I already have GT-Four rotors.

they hit the ball joint sideways, the diameter has nothing to do with them clearing the balljoints. you have to play with the offset of the disc to push them away from them, but every car is different I guess, so I'm sure you'll make them work on yours.

the 205 rotors clear my balljoint just fine, at least 3-5 mm. The only prob I have is the caliper sits on top of the rotor and one caliper bolt goes in, the other didn't.

hmm, that's odd, I didn't run into that at all, and the 3-5 mm clearance on the balljoint is an issue, once the car is on the ground and you turn the wheel, the suspension will flex enough to allow contact.

I'll take pictures of my hub / ST205 disc bolted together, I can't see why yours wouldn't, unless ST and GT hubs are slightly different after all.

Sweet, man. I'm got my calipers and rotors from Jim (thanks for the trade, big guy biggrin.gif) and I need to buy that pin and shim kit with the pads. I'm getting my calipers powdercoated in candy red with clear. Should look sweet.

Reducing the diameter of rotors u'll reduce the braking torque...Why upgrade callipers only? The biggest part is given by the diameter...using the same pieces u'll have only a little advantage...
