Does anyone know where you can find the installation directions for the new brakes? Or a picture. Thanks

They are supposed to come in the box with the kit.
The kits I sold  from USLC all had directions in them

I bought a used set with extra pads. It didn't have the directions with it. It is crazy how much lighter they are.

Sorry for  re-opening an old thread. Does anyone know where I can get more of the thin spacers?  My brakes came with 7 thin ones and 4 thick.  Anyway, it took 6 thin ones  (3 per bolt) for the one caliper and I need a few more.  :-\

While I'm at it, I assume the 90 degree fitting will go where bottom, inside, fitting is?  The instructions say to clock the fitting towards the top of the car, which makes no sense.

Thanks in advance!

Pull the sticker off the side of the caliper, that's where the fitting goes.

There is a kit of different sizes. I got one from Mike at CMG. Don't remember the cost
