I've had these brackets on for a while now and have been running some generic civic calipers I found at the junk yard. They didn't really fit well (caliper too far away and ~1/3 of pad surface overhangs outside of rotor diameter). Those junk yard calipers are starting to leak. One of the things I wanted to take care of for this season was to get the correct size calipers to properly fit on the rotors. Per Xcessive's website the desired caliper is a 1984-1987 Civic with a 1.5l.. There were several variations available. Working at a parts store I was able to just order in every available caliper for every 1984-1987 Civic listed. Just in case there were differences, I wanted to make sure that I could get the right one. I spent most of my saturday shift messing with them. Some wouldn't fit at all, but the ones that did fit and seemed like they would work had the same problem as the ones I had from the junk yard (caliper too far out and pads not fully on rotor).
So.. What exact vehicle am I supposed to be getting calipers from to fit these brackets properly? Or are they designed to hang 1/3 of the pad off the outside edge of the rotor? May call Rich today to verify what I'm supposed to look for if nobody knows right off.
