Default Spoon Calipers

I recently purchased Spoon calipers upgrade package that AJ Racing is offering (Spoon Brakes UPGRADE !). Thanks so much! The package includes Twin-Block Spoon calipers, Project Mu brake pads, and Brembo rotors. I am so glad AJ Racing put this package together.

The calipers are bolt on with no need for any brackets. You will have to remove the dust shield from behind the rotors. They can also be cut, but removing them is much easier. There is a metal bracket on the mu brake pad that has to be removed. This can be pulled off. Small tabs on the back side of the pads have to be grinded off. Install was pretty straight forward. The only thing I had trouble with was removing the stock rotors since it was attached on really tight by 2 screws that stripped.

I also purchased 10mm spacers so that the calipers will clear my wheels. This involved replacing the studs with extended ones.

The calipers are much lighter then the stock calipers. Braking is more responsive then stock. I am really happy with it and it looks great.

I was planning to do a DIY for this but ended up drinking beers instead of taking detailed pictures. Here are some pics that were taken.
