Here's the finished installation. Bleed the brakes, and you're ready to go. We also lubed our calipers' slides to combat the uneven wear problem that wiped out the rotors in the first place. Detailing the rotors and pads with POR-15 will keep them rust-free and looking good for a long time, and is worth the extra work involved. The next time we have the front suspension apart, we'll detail the caliper and steering knuckle as well. Also, before anyone writes in to point it out, we had the vehicle supported by jackstands, as well as the floor jack that's visible. We weren't kidding about knowing a guy who dropped a car on his legs!
