AMC 20 Disc brake conversion
I'm at the end of a very long axle re-build so I'm a bit frustrated. New ring and pinion, new one piece axles, TRUSSED (thanx BESRK) all new seals and bearings, so I'm down to the disc brakes. (BTW, I got the calliper mounting brackets from BESRK too, talented man.....shameless plug for my man BESRK! )
I bought the 96 maxima calipers, the 97 geo tracker 2 door front rotors. All the write ups i've read say this set up will work. Well, they look pretty but the caliper is too thick, or so it seems.
I've compressed the piston all the way and still....missed it by THAT much. SO, is my only option to have the rotors turned down a 1/4 in or so? can I even do that? I mean will a shop shave that much off? Shall I just shave down the pads a bit? or is that just stupid talking? MAN I WANTED THIS THING RUNNIONG THIS WEEKEND.
