Re: Disc swap?

I take it you measured just between the c clip and wiggle room, or did you use a dial indicator on the rotor with the axle installed?

Re: Disc swap?

I don't have a ARB, but if you be able to just install the shim just before the c-clip maybe prior to slipping the axle in?

Back to a checklist......
Did you let the PV or MC go dry during install?
Do you have any SS brake hoses?
Are you sure you have the bleeders oriented correctly - common mistake

Before you make yourself crazy, I would at least try bleeding the calipers off the rotors with some wood or something to fill the gap.

I pre-measured (with a dial-indicator) the end play off my new axles directly off the flanges as to get the best reading.

I have an arb, it might be tricky to to get shims in past the retaining ring thing . I think I may still have some extra various sized C clips from ARB, perhaps some wider ones.
It doesn't look there is anything too unusual inside......

naw thats it, clearance is tight with that ring you see in the middle, a bit tight getting clips back in, shims on top of that would be a little hassle.

master cylinder never ran dry, im racking my brain as to what PV is?
good thought on caliper bleeder orientation, they are facing up, all hose is stock hardline with new ZJ soft line.

based on your experience perhaps this is all just by nature of the new set up and the little bit of play shafts have.

Re: Disc swap?

PV is "proportioning valve", and if neither the MC or PV went dry then no issues. Rubber lines will generate a softer feel specially now that you have 5 of them. I'd definitely replace all the hoses with SS and start again from there.

Re: Disc swap?

Ok I miss spoke, I have braided lines front and the main to the axle. I supposed I can still look at custom braided rear lines.

Disc swap?

Crack the fittings going from the central line out. Then to passenger side banjo then bleeder then repeat on all driver side.

Bleeding at just the bleeder often leaves air upstream.
I've seen no air come out of bleeder then crack the banjo and tons of trapped air comes out.

My guess is you have air in the lines a spongy feeling petal.

Youl likely not notice much if my difference in pedal feel between braided nd rubber.


The calipers float so I'm not entirely sure what shiming the axle is going to do for anything since the caliper will just move to follow it.
I even just looked at my 8.25 disc braked set up. Maybe I'm missing something on the hole shimming idea

Good luck
