That's right, found BREMBO rear XT6 rotors. They're not really all that fancy, but it's cool knowing I'm stopping with Brembo now. Also got the five spokes put on and the 17s listed in the classifieds if anybody reading this is interested. Next up is to find some new rear calipers then it's onto the front to upgrade that end. Also need to figure out whats going on with the front, wheels wiggle like I've got wheel bearings that are going bad, but they don't make any noise and spin fine when I break them down to the hub. Can't get the axle nut any tighter either.
Maybe the XT6 outer stubs are too long for the EJ knuckles and I can't get the proper bearing preload?

Why did you chose the 5 x 100 over the 6-lug re-drill?

Realistically I see this as being the only real benefit to going five lug over the redrill. If we could get the off-road guys to leave the five lug parts alone, and just redrill their stuff, everybody'd probably be happier!
