    Thanks Cordes for your suggestion on the Hawks
    Glad you're enjoying them. They did better than I thought they would in my CSX. Bang for the buck they're unbeatable.

    Sure. Just check the boxes for the messages you want to delete on the right side of the screen. Next, scroll to the bottom of the list of messages, and select the box that says "selected messages". When the box pops up select delete messages, and then click proceed.

    There was a comment made on TD that this does limit 15" Wheel selection. So I thought I would test what I have and report back

    I just checked several 15" Mopar Rims on the 91+ 11"
    What fit....
    6" crabs ,pumpers, TurboStars and Centurion II (needed a spacer, I used a 3/16' spacer)
    two aftermarket rims also fit, one was CSA by Mullen(Australia) and another unknown manufacturer.

    edit: only the Centurion II required a spacer

    What did not fit....
    the 87' compact spare did not fit, so if I get a front flat... I will place the compact spare of the rear and use the good rear on the front . Not a biggy as I have not had to use a spare since the 70's (on a 73' Dart)

    They made space saver spares for the big brakes. They're not too hard to find in the JY since so many lebarons received the big brakes.

    I have two cars with the 11" rotor 4-wheel vented discs brakes: My '91 Spirit R/T (stock) and also a Shelby Lancer I converted. I also put this setup on an '86 Omni GLH Turbo that my brother now owns. The brakes work wonderfully and stop on a dime in all cases. I was watching a Motorweek video on YouTube of a review of the Spirit R/T and I'm surprised they weren't impressed with the braking performance.

    Re: My awesome 11" brake conversion on my 87' Sundance

    Is there a write-up somewhere with a parts list, options and instructions on how to install 11" brakes on an L body? I know there are bits and pieces in various threads...

    Thanks, Ralph

    fair guess that maybe all the later cars might have the space saver for the big brakes ??

    why make two if one will fit all ?

    seems all the newer space savers I came across have the huge center dome

    If you want a space saver try to grab a PT alloy, iirc all pt's had 11's. Light and rust free. This style: ebay.com/itm/Wheel-Steel-15x4-Compact-Spare-Fits-01-10-PT-CRUISER-78955/282931672642

    Rock Auto lists 260mm ( 10.2" ) and 282mm (11.1" ) rotors but it looks like the 282mm ones have 5x114 holes.
    What rotors did you use?

    ...nevermind.. Rotors from a spirit with 11 brakes.
