Yes, when purchased as part of my brake kit.
I have also posted a DIY thread on how you can drill them yourself as well.

13" rotor upgrade that allows you to retain the stock calipers, parking brake and parking brake cables. It is a bolt on installation w/o any other modifications to the upright or a-arms for proper clearance. It does require 17" wheels, use with lowering ball joints is not recommended due to interference issues, and longer braided stainless steel brake hoses are typically used as well.

I would definitely recommend FieroGuru's 13 brake rotor kit. I bought myself a set & it's top notch. Guru stands behind his work and he has taken all the guesswork out so it would be easy for us to install without any struggles.

And you get to keep your stock calipers & emergency parking brake.

Does anyone know what this part of the seat belt mechanism is for? Is it essential to the function of the seat belt mechanism? I sent my seat belts in to be re-webbed and when I got them back, this piece was rattling around inside, it had broken off. The other seat belt is just fine.

The good one


The broken one

I suspect that is the pendulum lock for the seat belts.
Under rapid deceleration or impact, the weight swings forward, locking the seat belt. If it is broke, I doubt the seat belt will work in an accident.

That makes sense, when I told them about it and sent a picture, they said that it wasn't part of the seat belt and I could just toss it. I knew that wasn't right, but I didn't know what purpose it served, so thank you.

Can you tell me how you connected the temp side? where did you put the sensor? I put one of these in but can only get the compass to work. Thanks.

And BTW, I've been to Yuma. It's NEVER been as cold as 73 degrees!

I put the temp sensor right behind the center of the the front bumper do it would be in front of the radiator and protected from direct air flow. As for being 73 degrees, it was cooler because it was a rainy day, yes it actually rained for three days.

So, I ran into an issue when I tried connecting my new power window switches. All of this was done on the passenger side mirror, I didn't want to cut into the driver's side until I got the passenger side sorted out. Using the up button. I can get the window to go up, but the down button does nothing. When I switch the up and down wires the up button will lower the window. The down button does nothing for some reason, I tried this with both switches and got the same result. The wires are connected correctly. I called the company that I bought them from, but they couldn't really help me, except to say the switches are reverse polarity and something about the window motor needing to be 2 wire. I know people have done this before so, any advice how to get this to work would be greatly appreciated.

I dyed my carpets black, they came out really well, although it doesn't look like it in the pictures.
