tispco Posted September 28, 2009 Report Share Posted September 28, 2009 I bought a set of GT500 brakes (calipers, pads, rotors, and hoses) about a month ago and I finally had a chance to install them this afternoon. The install went pretty smooth and it was a completely bolt on swap. I also added R1 Concepts drilled / slotted rotors and I picked up dusts shields online from Team Ford. A couple of useful torque specifications: Brake caliper to knuckle bolts -- 85 lbs/ft and brake hose to caliper banjo bolt -- 30 lbs/ft. The rotor pic is my old Rotorpros GT front rotors compared to the new R1 Concepts GT 500 rotors. I was pleased my 18" CS69 wheels fit over the GT500 brakes as advertised. Most 18" rims will not fit over these brakes (including stock SGT wheels). I took it for a short test drive and the pedal was firm and the brakes had good bite. I'll have to get them broken in before I really push them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
