i went with EBC slotted rotors and yellowstuff pads and russel stainless lines. i now have SVT brakes in the front AND the rear. grand total was $500. HA! running regular autozone brake fluid ATM but the next time i put fresh pads on the car and before i track the car i will be changing to ATE super blue. much higher boiling point fluid and its BLUE!!!
i am very pleased with these brakes. i did 2 full on panic stops from 100mph back to back and they are WAY better than factory. the first stop was a bit scarey because the brakes felt like they didnt really start to grab good until i had been laying on them for a full second or two but the second time i did it after having them good and heated up from the first time they snagged right away. this is the first time ive driven a car that the brakes faded IN to become better the hotter you get them. i LOVE these brakes. it was un nerving how big the difference was hot and cold but even cold they are way better than stock. definitely a good investment and i will be much more confident now if i decide to track this car any time in the near future.
now i just gotta replace the ball joints in the front again. those suckers are DONE in the front.
Im in the process of trying to do this, could you send me a list of what parts you had to get? And where the hell did you find the correct spindles? or does it use the same spindles? Im a bit confused because by the pictures of the SVT rear brake kit it looks like the spindles have a mounting point for calipers built into it but then people are telling me it uses regular spindles and a caliper bracket of some sort. Any help would be much appreciated, trying to get this saleen to not look so silly with Brembos in front and drums in back lol.
