    • Secondly, the fluid cross over pipe must be switched around, and the left caliper used on the right, and vice versa! On the Cadillac the caliper mounts on the leading side, on the Commodore it mounts on the trailing side! In order to keep the smaller piston as the leading piston (which must happen to ensure even pad wear!) this change must occur before installation.

    But this doesnt make sense? I get you need to do one or the other, doing both negates the change? I agree with OP that in order to have the smaller piston leading into the rotation of the forward motion, the smaller piston needs to be on the bottom of the caliper to begin with ie if we rotate from leading to trailing mount the piston stays in the correct loaction but the plumbing is now upside down. By reversing the plumbing this is fixed.

    If you take the caliper and mount it on the opposite wheel the plumbing is right, but the piston is now in the wrong position. So the quote above makes me wonder if my spacial perception is totally screwed or the message has been incorrectly relayed to the masses.

    ps I have drawn this to confirm my understanding and it verifies it for me but I could be reading it totally wrong..................

    Mate I think you are right, well we both are, but logically doesn’t matter swapping caliper sides, indeed.
    I was one of the first to do this so took it to my setup guy who is ex-speedway, he worked install out and did have a reason but I forgot :confused:

    From what I can tell the top caliper is the rear left and is as expected.

    Good job in not damaging the paint! It was always my concern in doing the upgrade I would damage the paint. So did you go direct to ZZPerformance or use their ebay store? I think I will bite the bullet and go for the yellow kit. I am just hoping that I can clear the VF II SSV-Redline 19" rims OK. :)

    I am going to be ordering a second set of rims anyway but I want to keep the original set for track days.

    Have a read of the first post here re brake pads:

    Can't wait for some big brake porn.

    I would love to see these brakes behind the vf1 redline wheels.
