EXAMPLE---CALIPERS/05

Calipers/?= use svt= the piston diameter is bigger
Rotors/?= use the 300mm svt
Ball Joints/?=the '05+ use the bigger taper ones
Spindels/?= use the '05 ones, the '06+ use a bigger diameter strut
Brake Lines/?
= stock will work, Stainless steel is best

The '05 spindle uses the earlier strut & uses a bigger tapered ball joint stud, so you'll have to change your LCA's for '05+ arms.
