well it technically isnt truly bolt on, you have to drill the caliper mount holes in the knuckle larger to accommodate the larger bolt.

the parts car is a 2000 hyundai elantra. grab the rotor, the caliper bracket, and the caliper itself. carefully drill out the mount holes on the knuckle. bolt it all on.


you must be running 14" or larger wheels for this.
now onto the pics

what knuckles are you using i know the gti, turbo, 95+ are all different and this might not work for all.

I'm also wondering which knuckle you're running? I have a 2001 and I'm looking for big brake options.

It's cheaper to buy new at Rockauto.com and pay the core charges than yanking junkyard cores and trading them in. Can't wait to try this out.

Not sure why you would choose this setup over a honda swap?, tons of performance pads to suit Honda and little to no choice of pads for Hyundai.

Bingo. GTi front spindles are fairly rare stateside and GTi rear spindles are fucking hens teeth over here. Anything that bolts to a 95+ mk4, of which there are many on the road, has a substantial addressable market of big dudes that don't fit into the smaller mk2/3 series (international chassis). And worse, said addressable market are generally cheap bastards just trying to get to work every day and couldn't care less about performance, just surviving leased Mercedes and Lexus's rear ending you randomly in rush hour traffic and walking away without an ambulance ride. Been there, done that, got more than one t-shirt.
