My issue with that type of upgrade is that I do not have the tools/space to do the work.Oh man I can't wait to scrape together some cash and get some pierce parts.
Yes sir---direct replacement---I can do them crossdrilled/slotted/or dimpled.Are the front rotors the same diameter as the OEM's (11.8 inches)?
No, I got the tie rod brace first and then the strut brace because he had not finished the strut braces yet. Next will be either the coilovers Pierce sells or the rear sway bar if he finishes it soon.So you have upper a lower stiffening in the front. Did you do both at the same time and how significant is the stiffening? Nice looking brakes, btw.
Are those cryo treated? Or how are they treated that they look black? Have you been using these on the street and track?Yes sir---direct replacement---I can do them crossdrilled/slotted/or dimpled.
Those look great Truman! I'm curious to see how that emblem holds up in the engine bay---I'll send you out another for the rear of the car if you like.
Velociraptor, the strutbrace installs in about 10 minutes with a couple of sockets---no need to cut anything and it's super simple if you can borrow a 14mm socket and ratchet-I can talk you through it over the phone. The rotor's require a bit more, a jack and jack stands---but still I'd say at a pretty basic skill level, you can handle it! The 4 point is considerably more work---we can do them here at the shop on the lift in about 10 minutes or so (we've done a few now!!), but on my back on the ground I'd bet it would be 45 minutes or better.

Would it be worth it to get them Cryoed? I know some shops by me do it, or so I've heard, and I heard if you do it once the rotors realistically should outlast the car.Totally understand---yeah the bottom stickers work well/better on lighter colors for sure.
The rotor's are not cryoed---they're zinc coated and can be black or silver---we went with black to match the car.
If you were doing endurance racing with the car---where stress cracks are an issue then absolutely. For a street car no---the wear is increased a bit, and the resistance to warping a bit more, but your not going to get the crazy heat cycles in them so it's not cost effective. Besides they're warrantied for life anyways!Would it be worth it to get them Cryoed?
