i feel you but running traditional brakes does give better wheel clearance and thus more choices. just drive slow!

thanks. i dont see it as a downgrade, more like a wheel upgrade to be honest i dont feel much of a difference. just drive more slow then before haha

thought about getting a new system, but the OEM is more the enough loud for me. cheaper too.

Thanks brah. At least you got access to better goods then mainland folk.

So update:
Got the amistad dishes back on with fresh rubber. Lowered the front and rear a few mm. Next on the list is a fender lip shave and roll. Upcoming Vegas trip may hault any progression for a few weeks lol.
