Vanco Kit Replacement Rotors?

Hope you guys can help me out as the black magic brake website doesn't have the info and my google-fu is lacking..

I've got a 2006 TJ with the original Vanco BBK in a 15" flavor but noticed that they only have 16" rotors listed for replacement. Are they the ones I need? Anyone got any idea? Thanks

Do you still have your Vanco instructions? IIRC on the first page it has a full break down of the parts and what they are if you need to replace them. The 15 and 16" kits might use the same rotor, I don't recall. I'll look around and see if I have a copy of the instructions. Blaine's probably in JV right now so it may be till the weekend that he'll be back on here to answer directly.

Pretty sure you need 99 ish ford sport track rotors. The pads are the same except there are two varieties; one with an affixed clip on one pad side and one without. Just compare what you have with the explorer type and the sport track type pads and you should be able to find what you need. Hopefully mrblaine will check in and tell you for sure, but I have two kits and I think that is what you need.

Thanks fellas, yea I should have the original 46mm pads but I'm not entirely sure. I thought they were from a 98 or so explorer I just couldn't remember, it's been a long while since I've messed with them.

Yea I looked for the instructions but the only ones I could find were for the new generation kits. It looks like I need 15" 98 explorer rotors, probably run the centrics that are recommended with the black magic pads I just wanna make sure I'm not overlooking something.
