Mike, I'm pretty sure Centric Posi-Quiets come with caliper hardware (shims and retainers but not the retaining pins)...

Brake Pads Posi-Quiet Metallic w/ Shims and Hardware Brembo Brakes Front PN 104.09600

Brake Pads Posi-Quiet Metallic w/ Shims and Hardware Brembo Brakes Rear PN 104.09610

Order the ones that specify hardware included even though most of them have it, according to Centric parts listing.

New head unit just arrived, waiting on facia and wiring stuff.
And I just broke up with my girl so technically I doubled my mod budget for 2017. And that means I gotta pick her up from hibernation asap since I kept her at my now ex's dad's shop over the winter so... I guess I'm gonna get to drive her soon! The Z that is.

The good with the bad, bad with the good. Pic for attention.

I lifted my car at 4 PM yesterday to take care of the clicking rear axles. After lifting the car, and taking off the wheels and axle nuts, the wife called me to go upstairs to make Korean BBQ (it was the first sunny weekend we've had in a month.) I started to close the garage door and suddenly realized that the car's big, fat butt was awfully close to the big metal rod on the bottom of my garage door that was slowly descending on it like something out of a James Bond movie. I hit the emergency stop on the garage door about two inches south of scratch Armageddon. I had to put the wheels back together, drop the car off the jack stands and roll it forward three inches so it'd clear the garage door. Then I called it a day, disgusted at my own lack of garage door foresight and made Korean BBQ. Then I played Fallout 4 until midnight. I'm going to try it again tonight.

Hey if you got the axle nuts off I would consider that a successful Sunday. I failed multiple times at axle nut removal before I finally got it...





And rook dropping the diff just takes some time and patience... Start spraying that bolt now if your worried... The driveshaft bolts are more tricky, if you have some offset wrenches it will make life a little easier.

Yeah, I have shop air and an Aircat 1150 impact wrench that puts out 1,295 ft-lbs of torque. It made quick work of that nut. LOL.

I actually did squirt the bolts before I put the car back together with some ATF/acetone homebrew, so good call there. I have a full garage with two of just about every tool you'd ever not need. Half of it is out of laziness (I don't like to work hard to get projects done) and half of it is because I'm a compulsive tool purchaser - I do NOT like to have to make a special trip to the store to buy a tool I need, so I've been buying tools bit by bit for almost 30 years. Now I have three completely stuffed stacked roller boxes, four huge shelf units full of specialty tool kits, a ridiculously over-packed diagnostic cart, shop air (two compressors,) a parts bin and a boombox from 1987 to keep me entertained.

Your photos make me feel good that I'm not working in the mud under a tarp.

The right tools make every job more pleasant... I jacked up car as pictured them had to tap on the end with a sledgehammer...

Im excited for all the snow to melt so I can get that subframe out and rip everything off it. At least I was bright enough to get that off before I ripped it off the car... Otherwise I would be buying an impact with more ***** then my 250 ft-lb 18 volter.

I actually would LIKE to own a 250 ft-lb 18 volter. The only battery-operated tool I have is a Hilti drill that I found in the middle of the road one day. I bought a charger for it and it works like a charm. There have been times when I've been sick of lugging the air hose around the car, but I swear, it does make turning nuts and bolts a breeze.

1,295lbs o'TQ.

Jeebus, 1,295..... they couldn't make it so it'd be an even 1,300?

Guess the guys at Freddy Funko's Tahrs n' Whills can't use that cuz they need more tq.

Your Hilti should be around 80-90 ft/lbs not too bad for some stuff with a socket adapter.
I use my Milwaukee 18 volt impact for some stuff. It's got a mini led light, cus i can't see sh** anymore.

Got new tires and TPMS sensors installed and finally got the car back out of storage even if it was only for a day.





Tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S the next generation of the PSS. So far with maybe 50 miles they seem awesome. Good grip from the little I have tried and good steering feel with but surprisingly soft in a good way. They are quiet and ride incredibly well with minimal impact noise.

I will add a review to the tire thread once I have more miles and time on them.

I have a Harbor Freight Special that delivers up to 250lbsTQ but I rarely use it. I was using it for tire/wheel changes but I found that I can do it by hand nearly as fast with a breaker, torque wr. and an old fashioned speed handle and I have less chance of galling the wheel.

Although I did just buy a new set of 17-19-21 thin wall wheel sockets with anti-gall sleeves so we'll see if I can do pit stop like wheel swaps.

Just bought a pair of Race Ramps jack ramps so now I'll eliminate my having to jack each corner and locating stands under it. Efficiency improved by 100%!

Like others have said soak the bolts all with PB blaster for a couple days before you go at it.................worst case scenario if it does not come off just use a sawzaw and a 9in metal cutting blade and cut it off....a new oem diff cover is cheap. A high torque air impact would be beneficial even though it didn't work for me.

Right on guys. Thanks for the tips. My car has been in Colorado the entirety of its ownership and life and has zero corrosion so hopefully I won't come acrosstoo many issues. My catalytic converters came right out and I saw some other people had serious problems with corrosion on the bolts up by the exhaust manifold.

Yeah, those bastards really cheaped out by not going the extra 5 pounds. I was thinking the same thing when I looked at the spec sheet.
