    Big Brakes and Addco rear sway bar on sei brakes

    Here's my new setup. 12" front and 11.1" rear I'm using the brackets that where custom made by rob to mount the front calipers and I'm using legend rear calipers. Stainless braided lines all around.

    Pleas excuse the dirty car, Its been on jack stands for the past month.




    You can also see the the addco rear sway bar DOES fit the sei brakes. I just need to go buy some shorter bolts for the end links. I was only able to run one bushing between the sway bar and the bracket but it shouldn't make to much of a difference.




    I took it for a test drive tonight after i eyeballed an alignment, since i changed the power steering rack, and the brakes work great. I locked up all four for a second going 40+.

    great setup! But how were you able to purchase the rotors with the AEM logo? I thought powerslot only puts their own logo on.

    Re: Big Brakes and Addco rear sway bar on sei brakes

    So the only thing you had to do was buy shorter endlinks so it wont hit the caliper?


    Oh and when you get tired of you car jack send it my way!

    They where like that when i got them. I bought them on ebay. They where a display unit at a speed shop or something similar. They may have been made during the transition period from AEM to Powerslot.

    Sorry i missed this when i quoted it earlier. Yes the only thing need was to shorten the endlinks. I did so by removing the two washers and a bushing between the bracket and sway bar. So there is only 3 bushings on the endlink, not sure if it will make a difference since i haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

    Thanks, Not really sure on the amount i paid for all of it since I've had the rotors around for at least a year and and the rear disc setup for longer then that. I started ordering the rest of the parts for the swap after that. I know the legend calipers where at least $250~300 then at least $400 for the rotors, $120 for the brake lines, $120 for pads, plus what ever i paid for the rear disc spindles/calipers/proportioning valve, and the custom front brackets for the calipers. I also bought new caliper hardware kits and a rebuild kit for the front calipers. I also used two cans brake paint. I pressed new bearings into the front spindles and new moog ball joints.

    The suspension was where i originally started moding my car, and has made the car the most enjoyable out of any of my mods. I think the next time I do the brakes I'm going to look into some wilwood calipers for the front since fast brakes has 4 and 6 piston calipers for the front.


    I have a question for those of you running the legend rear calipers. Did you use all of the hardware for them when you installed them? The piece that goes on the caliper that rides on the outside of the rotor that pushes the pads down is making the most annoying noise from it scraping the rotor while I'm driving, I'll probably just remove them since its driving me crazy and I don't think it will make any difference in the braking ability.

    Its the pieces at the top of this picture.
