yea i know my dust shields were already trimmed. there was nothing else that could possible interfere with the hat seating flush. to emphasize the point i suppose i could remove that hat from the rotor (being that it's a 2 piece design) and then try to mounting just the hat onto the hub...

it's not a problem with the dust shield. it's not a problem with the spacer bracket. trust me i've been over it many many times. it's not a problem with receiving the wrong parts. i verified all the PN's with AEM. with my car the hat simply did not sit flush on the hub even after some grinding and cleaning. it could be forced on with some hammering but that is not something you should have to do.

i'm glad you guys did not have problems but i did. it sounds like this guy is having the exact same problem. if anyone wants to fly out here and prove that i'm a dumbass and just installed it wrong then fine. bottom line is that the product did not fit as it was supposed to on MY car. i would not want to take my chances again with $350 on a product that MIGHT fit. i do not have the money for a high end braking system, but if i had not purchased the AEM's in the first place i would be that much closer to being able to afford one.

i bought raceconcept rotors to replace my AEM's and they slipped on with no problem whatsoever. if it's an isolated problem with my car i would think i would have problems using ANY rotor made for our cars. maybe it's a problem with the manufacturing tolerances of the hats at AEM. maybe it's really the wrong rotor packaged in a box for our cars. i don't know. what i do know is that it did not fit like it should. it's a close fit, but being close when it comes to brakes is not good enough for me.

anyways, telling this guy that you guys had no problems on YOUR cars doesn't really help him much... i had the same experience as him so i'm merely suggesting to him what i wish i had done - return them while you can. do not use them if they do not fit. if you've already checked everything suggested - dust shield, bracket, etc. just save yourself the headache and some warped rotors in the future. do what you go to, but get a refund.
