    Finally got the rear brakes updated to Police/Charger Daytona rotors/pads/and brackets. First note is that when ordering the NEW rear brake pads, DO NOT get the ones for a Challenger as they are too thick, you must have a "b"after part number to get the correct pads. I order Centis Fleet pads that were supposed to have new seals and rattle clips. Well the fronts did, but the backs didn't. May have been me though as I had ordered a complete front/back set of EBC Red pads BEFORE I learned that, returned the rears for credit but am "stuck" with the fronts. Had to "Drimmel" the rear rattleclips as pictured, do not know if I had gotten the NEW clips if that may have saved that step, and after installing MAY have worked with the stock pads after all, as there SEEMED to be clearance for the slightly thicker stockers. Used/upgraded ALL Rotors to R1 slotted, Fleet duty Scorched Pads and need to BED them properly but weather not cooperating and had to take car for supplies so hope to get that done soon. On a side note, having to type this SLOW, don't know why but this has taken FOREVER!!!!
    OK, This is PITA today, can't do a thing but hope this works, First picture shows difference in rotors thickness, next picture is After, next is Before of my car, next two are pictures of stock/Police rotors and brackets side/side.
