    when it comes to wheel nuts remember there is far more strength in your leg than your arm.

    Riktigt bra jobb och bra video! Jag ska montera exakt samma bromsar, fast på en 9-5 Aero från 2006 – så TACK för bra instruktioner.

    When I did mine i just cut off the dust shield's rim with an angle grinder and banged it with a hammer a few times to prevent it from rubbing.

    Great opportunity to change your wheel hubs if they were bad. Nice work as always. Like the new rotors and pads. They look awesome under those wheels.


    Man, those new calipers make the old ones look like they came off a mountain bike.

    Recently, I had to change the passenger side half shaft. The Jack method didn't work, it broke my 18" breaker bar. I even got a 24" heavy duty breaker bar on it and a piece of pipe over the handle as a cheater bar. Ended up putting a smile in the breaker bar without the center nut moving any at all.

    I got out a "truck stop special" 12v impact wrench that my father-in-law gave us. After it hammered 9 or ten times, it broke free easily and spun right off.

    To the guy that put it on, f#@$ you very much, buddy!

    How do people not know that jack trick..

    Also "the nut" is a axle nut.

    Great trick with the floor jack! I’ll have to remember that one 🙂

    My dad recommend the jack thing one time I was trying to break a stubborn nut free. Old school help helps lol. It a great trick!
    Other than the size difference is it a double piston caliper? I have a 2006 aero but my rotor are only 302mm. Is that only a turbo x setup? I'm looking to do a brake upgrade. I was looking at the brembo option but on carid the have a ton of wilwood options front and back fairly cheap


    Nice upgrade ! Enjoyed
