Exactly. I think the squeek comes from the pads and improper alignment. Never had a issue with squeeking, also I did it just because of the added weight in the front. Probably will never autocross this car or do any track days in it, it's just a fun cruiser and occasionally I will take it to the drags

I ended up buying stock s60r caliper bolts, trimming them down a hair and went with stock materials pads. Will know soon if the squeal goes away. I think my issue might be a alignment problem.

So far so good, 100 miles on the brakes, I used oem ac Delco pads and mounting hardware and oem s60r rotors. No noise and the brakes stop good. All in all it's a great upgrade so far!

I sometimes wonder if there's a time machine involved in this build, or I've been living a groundhog day over and over. One day it's "I have an idea about thing that totally may not work" and the next it's "okay, it's in and I put a few hundred/thousand miles on it". Kudos, or whatever you kids eat on the other coast...this is impressive stuff.

Lack of dealing with snow, flooding and constant yard/farm work probably helps with that.

Haha...true! Thanks, mopar, for giving me even MORE reasons to cite when my friends ask why I haven't gotten ANYTHING done on my projects. "dang varmint kids, snow, yardwork..." I feel better already!

This car is the best car.
Aside from the spider eyes, I love it entirely.

Soon! I am very fortunate as far as weather goes. However my occupation is a hd diesel tech so I work on vehicles all day, so it does get extremely tiring

So I ordered a new fuel rail for the car as well. Found alot of rust in mine that I had missed previously. Goldbox should be here tomorrow and I ordered a billet torque converter, apparently after talking to the trans guys the stock converter with the transgo kit will cause a super harsh shift which for those that have ridden in my car can tell you how brutal it is.

Converter is in and all I can say is, I wish I would have done this from the start. The converter made the car alot more responsive and the shifts have mellowed out quite a bit as well

Got the ms3x goldbox installed. Wish I would have just done that from the beginning as well! The cheap man always pays the most in the long run

How much of pain was it to pull the trans with those engine mounts the lack of space in there? Thinking in the future for a converter change
