HOW TO INSTALL:

Check your wheels for clearance

We recommend this check be done by Rugged Brake System authorised dealers or qualified mechanic.

The below images are done with a 16inch aftermarket wheel.

Step 1:
Measure a piece of rod or small piece of timber and cut to 375mm

Step 2:
Lay the piece you have cut accross the inside mounting face of the wheel as below.

Step 3:
Make sure the piece you cut does not touch any of the spokes beyond the mounting face or the barrel of the rim.
The piece you cut should be able to clear fully from the back of the wheel all the way to the mounting face without touching.



If you complete this step with out the piece touching any part of the wheel, you're good to go!

Modifying the front axle

We HIGHLY recommend this is done by a Rugged Brake System authorised dealer or qualified mechanic.
Make sure you wear personal protection equipment when installing this kit!
Once this kit is installed the vehicle MUST be Mod Plated, please check your State / Territories laws before installing this product!

Step 1:
Download our backing plate cutting guide at ruggedbrakes.com.au - info tab
Cut out the guide and hold it in place to the caliper mounting ears.
Mark with a pen the top and bottom of the backing plate to allow clearance for the caliper as picture below.
Carefully Cut the backing plate with a grinder, finish off the area with a file and paint to protect against corrosion.



Step 2:

Get the RED bolt that comes with your kit and install it into a brake caliper mounting hole on the vehicle.
Carefully linish the mounting ear down so that it is level with the washer and contours it perfectly (as pictured)


Once you have completed these steps it's a simple bolt-on!
