    Very nice. I would be more inclined to do this if there was no drilling required.

    Nice. I am curious, if you mount a disc, do you see the same .075 offset requirement (I expect that it would be somewhere close to that)? My curiosity is in how much production tolerance there is on the spindle mounting points.

    They don't even mention needing to mill them.

    They technically still fit without milling. The rotor isn't centered...but it looks like it will work.

    Here’s the spacing if you don’t mill. My used pads fit in fine. The outer pistons would be extended morebut it is technically usable.

    From the Brembo Racing Catalog, it states that the caliper must be mounted in a symmetrical position with respect to the rotor centerline: The difference between the left side and right side pistons to rotor must be 0.6mm (0.024") MAX.

    Good to know.

    Kinda odd for LMR to pedal a product requiring extensive modification to be safe.

    There's a post on Facebook now saying he took a guys money in July, delivered no calipers and blocked the guy. Hopefully svtperfo will permaban the guy.

    He’s a coward he just runs as soon as anything is questioned. He has been making people pay in such a way that they cannot refund the money... still curious to see why the j64 he was charging more for is superior.

    I don’t think he’s using J64 brembos. I purchased a set and these things aren’t fitting with anything less than a 14” rotor.

    Same spindle mods required. Same m14 thread inserts and 128mm bolt spacing.

    Basically GM uses two different 4 piston brembos. There’s the base brembo used on the ATS and base corvette that run a 12.6” rotor, and then there’s the larger j64 that comes on the XTS and Buick Regal and corvette z51 that use a 13.6” rotor.

    Camaros get the two setups as well. Base gets the 12.6 and Same brembo as ATS and base vette and the Camaro SS gets the 13.6 and same brembo as XTS/vette z51

    I haven't found any information at all to suggest there is any difference in how these two calipers mount other than M14 thread pitch and 128mm spacing.

    Here’s the difference between ATS and XTS j64 brembos

    Needs a bigger rotor. Maybe gt500 14” rotor?

    13” rotor isn’t big enough

    Anyone want to buy them?

    Is the only difference the need for a bigger rotor?

    Can I still use the machined fitting and spacer kit from above?
