Baer Serious Street 12-inch Front Rotor ConversionUp front, the system Baer provided is a derivative of their Serious Street 12-inch diameter rotor conversion. This version is Baers smallest and the only system compatible with our wheel choice. The system includes a direct-replacement master cylinder with the proper volume for the systems requirements (it can be used manually or as Baer prefers, with booster); a pair of PBR aluminum D.O.T.-legal calipers (NOTE: The larger Sport or Track systems employ a PBR caliper with the Baer logo); a set of billet-aluminum hubs which arrive preassembled with U.S.-made races, bearings, and seals and are even prepacked in Red Line synthetic grease and then capped for shipment; a pair of billet-aluminum intermediate mounting brackets (attach to stock locations on factory disc spindles); a set of Teflon -lined, braided stainless steel hoses and appropriate fittings; a full complement of required hardware, instructions, and even a clear plastic bleeder hose to make that process easier.
First, remove the OE brake hardware from the spindle, wipe it clean, then bolt the side-specific intermediate mounting brackets with the hardware provided (NOTE: All critical fasteners are treated with VibraTite coating at Baer prior to shipment) and torque to 100 lb/ft. Next, uncap the billet hub assembly (ours came with optional ARP NHRA legal studs because of our need to use a spacer), slide it onto the spindle and with the new spindle nut and related hardware provided, tension as detailed in the instructions. The rotor fits to the hub, and the caliper slides onto the rotor and is torqued to the intermediate bracket to 85 lb/ft. Under the car, the last operation is to install the braided-steel brake hoses that are complete with adapter fitting that connect them to the stock OE steel hard lines. Back on the topside, we bolt the new master cylinder in place and then complete the install by bleeding the brakes.
Pay attention to safety and get assistance if you need it. Test the system in low-speed conditions!
