I've decided that my first project this winter will be to upgrade my front end. I bought a rust bucket 350 Chevy so I have something to drive while I work on my Fiero.
So I was thinking of doing the Zettner brake upgrade, plus the poly bushings. I guess what I need to know is; Are the bushings in the poly kit from the Fiero Store labeled? Or are they so obvious its not funny? Anything I should keep an eye out for?

Zettner's instructions are very thorough. But what should I expect to pay for it? (calipers rotors w/o core) I do work in a machine shop so that I can do most of the rest myself. Only problem there is my boss giving me grief. "How fast do you need to stop?"
Of course I was looking at the brakes on a 4cyl eclpise and the rotors are bigger on it even.

Ok, I've changed my mind on Zettners brake upgrade. It looks like a whole lot of work, for what upgrading the exsisting could accomplish. Besides, people already tailgate me to death because they can easily see past me. I presume that I'm not the only one that finds themselves with an Escalade (or other SUV) extremely close in rush hour traffic.
However, it looks as though I'll need to buy everything (crossdrilled rotors/ poly kit) from the Fiero Store. Raybestos makes a cross drilled rotor but I can't find anyone that sells that particular product (pepboys/ auto zone/ advance auto/ napa). Plus, the Fiero Store doesn't say who makes their rotors.
