You should be receiving your kits the first of next week, the kits went out Wednesday by UPS. It generally takes 5 or 6 working days to reach the east coast. Thanks for the order. These brake kits are the best on the market because of the aluminum hubs and flat rotors. I'm sure after careful inspection you will see what I mean.

As per my previous posting, "there is no such thing as a DOT approved aftermarket brake kit". Nobody will give you a certification or letter stating that their kit is DOT approved. So disregard the disclaimer Wilwood has in the instructions. They do this because the are such a big company, they dont want to be sued.

One important point that I should "re-state" If you bought a master cylinder from me. I sent you a 21MM" 82-86 Mustang master cylinder part number Raybestos MC39531, this master cylinder does not have a built in residual valve for the rear brakes when installing this master cylinder for a disc/drum application you will need to install a 10 pound residual valve inline for the rear brake system. If you are installing the master cylinder in a disc/disc application no residual valve is needed. The nice thing about the 7/8" 82-86 Mustang master cylinder is you dont have to change it if you upgrade to disc brake in the rear, all you have to do is remove the 10 pound residual valve. If for some unknow reason you have trouble getting a hard pedal, you "MIGHT" have to install a 2 pound residual valve in the front brake line.

Please feel free to email me if you still have questions.

PS For those of you that want to argue who's brake kit are the best. Just ask yourself this, "who's brake are on all the Winston Cup Cars (Nascar)?"........Wilwood's
....end of discussion.

Don't want to nitpick, but many Nascar teams use Alcon [IMG]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/IMG]
