Cleaned, Prepped, and Sprayed the Rear Disk Setup, SRT Front Sway, and R/T Rear Sway..

Image
Image

Getting ready for the weekend project.. Didn't touch the Pt Front Brake Setup cuz I don't think the calipers will clear the steelies..
Might have to wait to put my 18's back on the monster and swap the silverstone on this one til I get some more tires of the Sebring Wheels..

We'll see..

Thanxs bro... Its just like the srt front brake swap but lighter.. Getter a bigger piston, 11" rotors, and more stopping power than the stock setup...

The setup I have is a direct swap.. The srt is too but you have to shorten your inner tie rods a bit..

pt brakes are 11.02 big. basically srt setup but alot lighter. (something around 5-7 pounds it is said on neons.org) i have the setup for my 02 r/t, got the knuckles with hub/bearings, calipers, rotors, pads. they bolt right up to the stock 2gn lower arms and struts and uses stock 2gn 26 spline axles. Manual knuckles are the preferred ones to get . Because with pts the knuckle being auto or manual changes the steering ratio by the mounting location of the tie rod end.

Yep.. I'm actually thinking bout swapping my srt front calipers/rotors for the pts.. Less weight and I wouldn't have to run spacers..

Ah, gotya. The overlay looked close enough to a factory type design that I was racking my brain trying to figure out what it may have come from.

Having little ones on the way tends to motivate you a lot to get stuff done. Same thing happened to me. :lol:

:shock:

i just barely saw this thread.. AND I LOVES IT!!1

if i saw a hideous purple neon like that for sale, i would be scared to
even go look at it. but i guess its more of what potential the car has.
and i love everything you've done with it so far. the strut bars and
calibers painted white is just fan-freaking-tastic.

what spray are you using on your headliner?
