    so i currently dont have pics but will update later with pics

    first you contact me for info on gb
    then

    jack up car

    to make easier may need to remove rear springs

    take off back wheels

    loosen ebrake on ebrake handle


    remove drums

    remove ebrake

    remove hub

    install bracket to hub, reinstall hub with bracket

    install rotor

    install caliper/pads

    install ebrake cable

    replace brake lines with ss lines included

    bleed brakes

    reinstall springs if removed

    reinstall wheels

    lower

    and go for break in period


    usually i recommend doing front brakes and lines along with this, i did and it is now amazing

    no you dont lol .. they're that size so you have correct bias and the rears don't lock before the fronts lol ;) looks wise it would be better but function> form lol
