Getting out of Fieros for a while, & clearing out the storage shed. I will post more items later

Front Vented Brake conversion kit $225 ship to lower 48 (Fierostore asks $319 before shipping & core charge)
Original source was Fierostore http://www.fierostore.com/P...px?s=56004&d=379&p=1
I bought these on the forum in 2011 from FIEROSMIGLA, but I never installed them

1 L/H caliper
1 R/H caliper
1 L/H caliper bracket
1 R/H caliper bracket
2 wheel hubs w/ studs
2 vented rotors
1 brake pad set
2 inner wheel bearings
2 outer wheel bearings
2 inner wheel seals

Install instructions http://www.fierostore.com/Tech/Default.aspx?ID=147 (note, I have no runtime with the install & can't provide support - just the parts)

More stuff pending - may re-title thread to reflect contents at that time.

What size wheels are required to successfully install this kit? I know that some conversions require at least a 16" wheel and wonder about this specific one.

The rotors in that kit are similar size as stock. Consider it a grand am swap for the front. Stock wheels are fine.

5 day bump. These do me no good sitting in a shed. Reasonable offers considered.

PM sent. Although i forgot to ask, but i assume they aren't.... are any of the parts used? Or was it a kit that was bought and never used by either owner?

I've got a few PMs to respond to, but wanted to hit the highlights here:
1) the parts are new/never installed, & the rotors are still wrapped in plastic. Pics of the complete kit are up on my photobucket album:
http://photobucket.com/albu...7-zark-7/FieroBrakes

2)kit contents are:
1 L/H caliper
1 R/H caliper
1 L/H caliper bracket
1 R/H caliper bracket
2 wheel hubs w/ studs
2 vented rotors
1 brake pad set
2 inner wheel bearings
2 outer wheel bearings
2 inner wheel seals

3) I no longer have a car to install on, but I do have a spare rim. Rotor & caliper loosely held in position shows what looks like factory style clearance on factory 14 rims. I originally purchased this for a 2m4 with factory 14s (my old t-top) or my 87 GT, but never got around to it on either car.

4) shipping is the big expense on this side. This is a 60lb package consisting of a full refresh/upgrade for the front brakes from bearings to break pads & professionally machined hubs.

PMs back in a few minutes,

Best regards,

Steve

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?
