It's clean because there isn't a thing on it that has been used. It can't be used because I can't figure out the stupid brake thing. I had a mechanic of 30 years stumped. He tried for 1 hour and said he has to go lol. Oh, and it does leak, that's the next project. I'm sure that will go as well as this.
Rotors are identical. Calipers are the exact same. I replaced them just because I thought I couldn't push the calipers back far enough to fit as in picture 2 but I actually did. The only thing different are the size of the pads. The only reason there is a difference of size is because one is old and the other new. That thread is for 90 to 95 (oh nm re-read it) and it is the same as the videos I've watched which haven't helped. Still doesn't make since why it's this much trouble.
The pads are right. I checked online and called Napa, Autozone, Pep Boys, and Whoopies or whatever. All told me the same. I wish one would say different because I would try those.
Are those retaining clips necessary? I don't ever remember having those with stock brakes. I doubt that would cause a quarter inch difference in the calipers going on or not though. Are the calipers the same as the old ones? The rotors? Something has to have a wrong part number. What year jeep do you have, and can you post pictures of the old stuff?
Do the old calipers go on with the new pads and old rotors?
was looking at your picture with the rotors.. there isnt much stud sticking out to put the wheel on? Check the height to the inside of the hat.. it makes a big difference there... not the height to the outside. take pictures of your old parts next to your new parts...something has to be different... did you take both sides apart at the same time or one at a time? If the other side is still together take pictures of that side..

Please fill out your profile, what year jeep. The brake mounts changed sometime in 89-91 so important to get the right parts. I know I went down this road with mine, also I have been given parts that were incorrect but the store swore they were, went to a different company to get the right one. Just a thought.
