It's the caliper bracket, to space the caliper further out from the hub.

Oh, and it also properly spaces the caliper laterally.

No, it's a +5mm wheel spacer to allow 15x9 6ULs to clear the kit. There are no spacers to adapt our brackets - they bolt straight to the spindle and straight to the caliper.

Email or phone usually works way, way better than posting a thread for tech support.

well not really tech support imo, just looking for clarification since I know many on here run that setup and I know you post often when time permits.

Perhaps consider changing it to read "5mm wheel spacer (required for15x9 6ULs wheels)" next time you guys work on the site.

I knew it was not the bracket and pretty much assumed it was a wheel spacer but you you threw me off by including it as part of the rotor assembly ... which would make sense if the spacer is to be installed under the rotor versus on top of the rotor like a traditional spacer.

If you're confused about a product or a description, we're just a telephone call away.

But I would rather get on the internet and bitch about your work, rather than my intelligence.

I think the next generation will never use the phone. Text message or internet communication only. I finding a lot of people who I can’t seem to communicate with unless I have text messaging. The younger they are the worse it is some of them even have busineses.

It's great until you need documentation - ask me how I know.

For tech support/general questions it's fine, for business transactions it's a fools game.

For credible vendors like Trackspeed and FM I have confidence in verbal transactions, however, until a vendor proves themselves I use e-mail to document EVERY.F*CKIN.THING.
