Post by sh0rtlife » Mon Jun 05, 2006 10:59 am

ive been reading up on the rebuild of front/rear gtv6 brakes and have noticed some say that the pistons need indexed to the correct location....what is the "correct" location?

Hey Barry educate me.How can you tell it's for the rear ? I didn't even realize the rears had the raised ridge on the pistons...time to crawl under the car :evil:

Barry Henning, you are staying after class and you will write on the board 100 times: I will not lie to my classmates :oops: ! The rear pistons don't have cutouts, the pads are specially shaped to cater for pressure distribution. I am really disappointed...our star student...see where smoking in the toilets got you? :roll:

JK

Cause we run our cars upside down and back-to-front, we actually have the pistons pointed the opposite way..
