Nice work! I'd say the sport rears are more desirable than the fronts these days. Glad they found a home.

Built pressure today and went for a test drive around the block a few times. Brakes seemed to work decent until I lost the pedal! Drove it home to find this. Can't pull my wheel off yet until I buy a new jack

What looks like its leaking? Car sits to low for a better view lol

I can't tell :(

I noticed that my RR wheel was "oily" and got all excited.

Just glad I found the cuplrit, hopefully I can get my jack tomorrow and the brakes Mobius has sent me show up soon.
