The taper, in my case, is the same on both pads. If there was a twist to the bracket, the wear would not be the same inner and outer. I just think the leading edge does more work than the trailing edge.

OK...I was thinking it was tapered from top to bottom.

If Lane Automotive cannot help you, PM RacerX on this forum. His name is Carl Bush and he is a factory Wilwood Rep. He really bailed me out on my rear brakes last year. Awesome customer service!!!

Wilwood also just released a complete bolt-on kit for SN95 Spindles. The kit uses a radial mount caliper and utilizes the existing holes in the spindles, vs. cutting an "ear" off and fab-ing a bracket like I had to on my home-made set-up. The brackets were fairly easy, but I had a time getting the right rotor hat. I ended up with one that I had to CNC the center hole and narrow the depth by .120". Regardless, I am sure Carl can help you with part numbers and Lane Automotive can get 'em for you.

Mark.

Thanks Guys! I guess if I had read all the messages instead of just the ones that showed up on the search in this thread - I would have known the answer.. Will check in with Carl and order through Lane..
