I didnt think anyone sold CSL size blanks? I know PFC has their Direct Drive slotted rotors but they have been on back order for the past year now.

Would you recommend getting a caliper rebuild kit if getting used calipers?

It's recommended that you do, you don't want to go through the entire process of machining, powder coating, installing, bleeding and so on just to find out you have a faulty seal and/or boot.

I got my complete, ready to install set from MCORE Innovations. He sells through TTFS or you can ping him on instagram. Very happy with mine.

Good looking out!

Out of curiosity, how much did your kit run? If it's not that much more than sourcing each part individually, I may order through them.

I remember that it was a few hundred dollars more than sourcing everything yourself, but it is worth it IMHO. Takes a lot of time getting everything together, rebuilding and powder coating the calipers is not hard, but does take some time.

I managed to get my whole kit done for $2500 including new front and rear rotors and track pads, but like I said, it took some time and effort.
