Make sure that you put the correct bracket on the correct side. Let’s just say that maybe someone whose name is Erik might have put the wrong one on the wrong side and then figured this out when the caliper and rotor wouldn’t come together right.
Fortunately the thread locking compound hadn’t quite locked… yet.
That was obvious to you, right? I have no idea what I am doing in this picture. I think I was about to turn the front suspension back to straight. Yeah, let’s go with that.
Also note that an open-ended lug nut provides a convenient way to temporarily hold a rotor in place on the hub.
Make sure that you don’t forget the washer. StopTech ships the adapter bracket with the washer on the stud and the nut gently threaded onto it. The washer is easy to miss. Don’t. Mostly because then you have to take the nut and caliper back off to get to the washer.
You’ll need to use a pretty thin-walled socket to tighten the nut that retains the caliper. Also note that StopTech includes torque specifications in the instructions for most of the hardware. Make sure you follow them!
