25 The new drilled and slot­ted rear ro­tor was in­stalled. They are di­rec­tional, so we made sure to get them spin­ning the cor­rect way. 26 We used a cou­ple of ½-inch nuts to se­cure the ro­tor flat to the axle shaft, and then checked to make sure we had the cor­rect spac­ing on the caliper. In­stal­la­tion of the caliper is sim­ple, since the calipers come pre-loaded with the pads. The in­cluded hard­ware is used to se­cure them to the caliper mounts. 27 Also in­cluded with the rear disc brake con­ver­sion kit are all of the nec­es­sary lines and fit­tings to con­nect to the fac­tory lines. 28 Here’s a look at the com­pleted rear kit from CPP. The red pow­der coat on the front and rear calipers is an up­grade op­tion for the kit, but it def­i­nitely makes the brakes stand out. 29 With all four cor­ners fin­ished, we in­stalled the new Amer­i­can Rac­ing wheels. We opted for the VN215 Torq Thrust II. Amer­i­can Rac­ing of­fers this style in sev­eral fin­ishes, but we chose the mag gray cen­ter with the pol­ished lip. Up front we did a 20x8 with a 4.5inch backspace, and in the rear, we ran a 20x10 with a 4.74-inch backspace. We also opted for the spin­ners on the cen­ter caps, just to give them a dif­fer­ent look.
