Yep. At least that's what I remember when I did the brake upgrade on my 03. Gmt900 up front gmt800 in the back is the best combo.
I’ve got a gmt800 & 900. For whatever reason they went from a dual piston caliper on the 800’s to a single for the 900 but went to a larger diameter rotor for 900’s. If you could combine the two, that would be cool but also doubt it would make a huge difference compared to fronts.

ordered some 25w 3.9ohm resistors to shut off this annoying "service suspension" light in the info center. they were 10 bucks on amazon.

now, im debating rolling the dice on this "unbranded/generic" $40 rocker trunion kit.
did they actually come down in price that much? or is china just finally copying the $120 kits?

whatcha think?

This fuckin ****. Around 1230 afternoon yesterday, I'm sitting in the drive at the shop with it running and playing on the scanner to do a relearn on my blenddoors for the HVAC.

Im done, it all works great. Get out and see a puddle of coolant under the front two corners! MOTHER FUCKER.

It's the damn radiator, the drivers side tank split. Not at the core, but down the center of the tank!!! (Casting line? Idk)

so i call napa, theyre out of stock, and nothign in a store within 2 days of getting! WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHATTTTTTTTTTTTT, but either way, theyre at $176 for it.

then i call oreillys, they got one at the warehouse, $205.. nope

call advance, they got one in stock for 189, and wont pricematch.. but i go on line and add to cart, apply 25% off coupon, pay $153.
-- so then i call the commercial line back and order 2 gallons of coolant, and tell them to bring my "store pickup" online purchase with the driver :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

they do. and i got this thing all wrapped up by like 4pm. what a waste of an afternoon. ugh.

*now i just hope my stuff comes in on time, this weekend!*

Sure it took almost 3 hours. But my fog light housings are replaced.

Them led bulbs didn't fit. Currently disputing with that ebay seller.
