Is it needed at this point with 35s? Just bought 35s and have everything in order but the brakes. Lookin for opinions here.
No you don't get the same results. And, even if you did, you've still failed to address the weak cast sliders that will flex further under the higher braking forces. You still haven't addressed a crappy weak stock caliper, and you haven't addressed the smallish rotor diameter.

You already have hydraulic steering.

Thanks Blaine. Next on my list is the EBC Rotors and pads and once I drive it a bit and see how I feel I will upgrade as necessary.

LCG = Low Center of Gravity

LCG is typically defined as less than 1" of lift per 1" increase in tire size.

"old school" convention is typically 1" of lift per 1" increase in tire size.

Don't you mean 1" of lift per 2" increase in tire size?

edit: Never mind, I was thinking bump stops.

Maybe add info on how much total bump stop extension is needed to keep 35s out of stock fenders.
