The info on blackmajicbrakes.com appears to have a bracket bolted to the knuckle and indicates that the unit bearing must be ground. The knuckle on the 4low parts looks different and says nothing about grinding down the unit bearing. My application is on a 2000 tj. My question is which instruction setup is the current version of the Vanco Big Brake kit for the TJ? Thanks.
It depends on the kit. The Super 16, Currie F-450, and Reid kits still have brackets that bolt to the knuckles.
The 15", 16" and 17" that are RCV compatible don't need additional brackets because they have been built with a knuckle that has the bosses located for the caliper saddles.
The 15 and 16 still need the flange on the unitbearing reduced in diameter slightly so the rotor can fit over them, but they are the only ones.
