Stop Tech BBK Installed...

Just thought I would share a few quick shots of the new brake setup paired with my recently acquired Vorsteiners. So far the brakes feel a lot like stock actually...and maybe even easier to modulate as they "bite" less as you first put pressure on the brake pedal. I'll post up more thoughts once I get some spirited driving in.

Yeah, I promised myself I would sell them as soon as the new ones arrived but still they sit in my garage...it is hard to beat a light weight 18" wheel. Maybe I'll throw them on to see them with the new brakes.

Seems like it's sitting high for being on any springs, I had eibachs before and it sat a lot lower than yours but maybe it's the angle the pic was taken

Honestly I think it could be the angle and the shadows. If I had my way it would sit a tad lower but not sure it's worth coilovers just to get a 1/4" more drop.
