93 Probe GT calipers with Samurai rotors
Custom brackets welded to axle. Pics do not show how the e-brake is connected, but maybe I will take some more shots with it hooked up.
Thanks, By the way is the Probe Rotor close to the same thickness as the sami's ?
I'm just wonderin if you get full use out of the pads, or if you have to toss them when they are half worn ?
Did you use the probe e-brake cables ? Or make you own setup ?
Probe rotors are the same thickness. Pad life should be normal. I used a proportioning valve from summit($40). Crossed the lines at the connection block at the front of the frame, and took out the factory valve at the rear of the frame. I used the factory sammy e-brake cables. Cut the horseshoe brackets off the end of the cables, and used a 1/4" threaded rod connector with a hole drilled in the center, and two 1/4-20 bolts threaded into either end to clamp the steel cable into it. Also put a small weld on the end of the cable where it comes through the rod connector, for good measure.
Pads make full contact. The Probe calipers have smaller fluid holding capabilities than others, so pedal feel is awesome. They were designed to stop a vehicle almost twice the weight of a samurai. They don't take up as much surface area on the rotor, but trust me, they stop on a dime[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
