if you want big brakes get a REAL kit


Are you trying to install the rotors with the OEM dust shields in place? Obviously you have to remove the dust shield, its made to fit around and over a tiny rotor. You do this for ALL 12"+ brake kits.

If the rotor is not seating against the hub, its hitting something. Figure out what. There is zero manufacturing or model year differences, ALL the hubs are the same.

The overhang of the pad in my case was under 1mm. The pad never broke off, and never rubs. Its so thin I can just tear it off with my fingers once the pads are worn down.

MCubed45 I realize you had a bad experience, but that doesn't mean the AEMs are a bad choice. If you can't afford a "real" brake kit like wilwood or stoptech, but want a mid-grade solution, AEMs kit is excellent. Clearly you have higher requirements, and the money to purchase better quality. Not everyone does.

Bottom line: If they dont fit right, you're installing them wrong.
