i havent done it yet but i am planning on going with baer breaks all the way around. they are some big ones, i gotta send in my drop spindels as a core becuase they have to give my new drop spindles to accomodate the breaks.

So bear make a brake upgrade kit for isuzu's. But you cant use aim/chassis tech drop spindels. Is that right?

Thanks

to my knowlage you have to send them your drop spindles are cores and they will send you the modified ones back. somthing like that. i worked for them for a little while and they make so much shit man its unreal. but thats what my moms b/f told me. i had him get the info becuase he has worked there for a couple of years.

In the front im using wilwood calipers and made my own hats that bolt to the back side of the toyota hubs like normal. Then i used the speedway 12.25 rotors on the front. with a new caliper mount. On the rear i used a toyota rearend and wilwood calipers, with ford explorer rear hats. Then made new caliper mounts and a ring to keep the hat hub centric.

Its awesome that everyone is doing big brake upgrades. I might have to upgrade my brakes for the 08 season. You guys are making me work on my truck again with all your cool rides.
