Dragging this thread up from the bowels of the site again....I just purchased a Scarebird kit....half of it arrived so far - still waiting on the Chebby calipers and rotors plus a few small parts a buddy of mine is helping with.
Looking forward to the install in a few weeks.

I don't know why it went to the top?
Hi we got the brackets but before we tear this A100 van down it would be great to know if we are going to have to buy four new wheels and tires to fit over the calipers. The van has some stock back spaced 14" chrome steel wheels now. How does the clearance look with your wheels? I had to go up to 15" steelies on my Chev when I did the disc conversion.
THANK YOU affraid

Just to clarify...
Which part are you referring to, the Scarebird ebay store part or the D100 article part.
