    I called up TSM about 14 bolt disc brackets. They quoted me like 240 for just the brackets no rotors or anything. I seem to remember someone bought them for alot less. $150 sticks in my mind for some reason for the TSM versions. Did the price go up or was I confused

    You heard them right.

    The price change is due to a change in the design of the brackets.

    It would be cheaper to go ahead and buy the whole kit from them rather than buy just the brackets and then buy the rotors locally at your parts store.

    $300 for the complete kit, minus the calipers, and that translates to $60 in rotors, where I would have to pay around $70 for the same thing. $240 for the brackets and bolts does seem high. [​IMG]

    It also depends on the design of the brackets, the 14sf brackets are about 1/2 the price of the 14ff brackets.

    I just bought brackets for the 14SF. They were $125.00. But the ones for the 14FF are something like $240. Wes is right. By the time you buy their brackets then source all the other parts it would be cheaper to buy the kit.
