Now that we’ve finished removing the old components and prepped our new stuff it’s time to bolt it all onto the car like the champions we are. Installation is basically reverse order of removal, but since we tore the car down like honey badgers raiding a bee’s nest I’ll try to slow it down a bit on the install. We don’t want any of you kiddies getting lost or hurt along the way.

TOOLS NEEDED: Ratchet, extensions, metric sockets, metric combination wrenches, 10mm line wrench, Phillips and Flat-blade screwdrivers, needle nose pliers, impact guns, muscles (the more, the better)

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: 2 out of 5

Footwork Installation

Upgrading Brake Hydraulics
