Sorry for the late reply, my shop manual finally arrived from
Helms...23-29lb/ft is the torque spec for the banjo bolt.

I used plain old Raybestos rotors.  I race an '82 Z28 as a hobby, couldn't
keep slotted rotors on it for all the stress cracking.  I've read that
cryogenically-treating them helps prevent this, but just not worth all the
$.  Invest the extra cash on good pads in my humble opinion.

And speaking of pads...these semi-metallic pieces are friggin' noisy.
Squeal like a pig every time I apply brakes, really annoying.  Soon as I
track down a set of Performance Frictions they're outta here.

Subject: Performance Brakes

Hmm.... I just torque it to feel, and I have never had a problem with leaking
before. I had an email conversation with explorer pro comp, and they are going to
check it out and then decide what they want to do with me from that point on.

I use performance friction pads and shoes, and I have never had either of them
make a peep, even without Napa Disk Brake Quiet. Just grease up the caliper pins
and the drum backing contact points, and everything stays quiet.  Shhhhhhh!!

I was just wondering how well those slotted rotors actually work. The add claims
that they can make me stop 20% better. Did you notice anything?

I am not a brake romper, but I appreciate longevity and performance. I don't
think I have ever gotten, or needed the brakes to lock up before.

When you are 20 years old, I am paying WAY to much insurance as it is, so why
drive aggressively/ hard to endanger the chances of my rates being raised?

Gary,

     I am just guessing here but I think you can get higher density foam that will withstand your
frame. ;-)  If you replace the entire seat the passenger side will not match the new one.  The way I get into my truck causes the seat pad cover to rip.  I am having it replaced under warranty, but what do I do after warranty runs out?

I got them at the not so local Napa auto parts in the next town here,
Sebastopol Auto/Truck Parts.

Hmm.... You know that's funny. Another reason that I got my seats re-uphostered at the same time the soft top was made for baby bronco was that I kept distorting the fabric as I got in it.

3" Suspension Lift, 2" Body lift and 31" tires and no step make it just a little tricky for me to get in without sliding across the seat fabric. I kept sliding across it, until all of the cloth was "swept" to taht direction and got wrinkeled.

The only rememdy I suppose is to climb up and over the seat.... Hmm....
