Default ECS rear spindle kit question???

For those running the ECS rear spindle kit I have a question. Can you run the factory brake setup and still run a 15" rim?


TIA.

Not with ours, take a look at LG's if you want to keep your stock brakes/E brake.

But plan on running spacers or a lot of caliber grinding or both, depending on the inside shape of the rim barrel.

True, that was a lot of work to make the stock brakes fit, but I think with a different rim it would not have been so difficult.

Doug do you have a brake package that is more "street oriented"?

That's cause it only weighs about 2500lbs since you gutted it.

I think I am going to bump this up to see if ECS still sells the kit. Looking to do the 15" rear wheel conversion here soon and seeing what are the options besides the LG spindle route.
