Pics of my Wilwood BBK installation

My neighbor and I installed the 6-pot Wilwood BBK by ArizonaZCar yesterday.
We started setting up for the install around 8:00 am. We erected a covered
work area to save us from the Texas sun.

The instructions were very straightforward. They said, 1) Remove the 4 bolts attaching the hub to the spindle. Remove the hub and backing plate, discard
the backing plate and reattach the hub. Well... .....the damn hub was corroded onto the spindle! Would not budge...
After several phone calls to Dave at ArizonaZCar, and after 1 and a half hours, we were able to get the hub off. Cleand up all the corroded area and gave a light coat of greese to everything. The other wheel was worse! But from what we had learned from the first go-around with the corroded hub, we managed to get this one off in about 45 min- 1 hour,

We spent all day on the install. Dave at ArizonaZCar says it takes him about 1 hour to do the front BBK install. It took us more than 11 hours.

But well worth the work. I was expecting more room with the 5Zigen 17X8 wheels. There is less than a 1/4 millimeter room between the spokes and the Wilwoods. I have ordered a 3 mm spacer. But.. They DO fit within the wheels. The 5Zigen wheels are 18 pounds/wheel, 5 pounds less than the 23 pound stock 6 spokes. The Wilwood BBK is 10 pounds ligher than the crappy stock brakes. 5+5 is 10 pounds less unsprung weight per front corner. The sedan seems to accelerate much faster and brake much better!

Does anyone need some old brakes for a 2003 G35? Or are these guys destined for tomorrow's trash? The OEM calipers weigh a ton! The are at least 4-5 times heaver than the Wilwoods. What a bunch of crap! And I have spent several thousand bucks keeping these guys on my car for 82,000 miles. Good rittance!

Well Cato I do have to say they really do stand out they look awesome. I love the BBK on this car. Good job with the DIY as well.

Of course I will post my impressions of it after they have been properly broken in. Dave at AZCar told me to grandma the brakes for the first few days. So I am pretty easy on them. I still have yet to install my Stillen rear slotted sport rotors and metal matrix pads, plus the StopTech rear SS braided brake lines.

I suggest you keep the old caliphers. Just in case anything happens to the brakes you have a back up...

Nice work. I understand how the rotors, spondle, and hub are all mated, which I'm going to need to know soon.

They look nice on the car.

I always keep the stock parts just in case you need to put them back on.

For instance (heaven forbid), you get rearended by dumptruck tomorrow (you're OK) and the car is totaled. You want to be able to put the stock calipers and rotors back on before they haul it away for scrap because you're likely not going to get any more money for the car whether the BBK is on it or not. You don't want to scrounge around for replacement stock calipers and rotors at a time like that.
