Re: Rear disc brake conversion - EMPI

I had the Empi rear kit on my old crew cab. It took a little bit of fettling to get it fitted. Seem to remember a bit of an issue with the adapter plates not having been machined 100% correctly.

Hi Guys, Does anyone know if the wheel bearing dust cover for the CSP disc brakes is a commonly available item? I have the one with the hole in it for the speedo but the other side is missing at the moment. Before I approach the CSP distributors I thought I would ask if anyone is aware of it being a...
