      Iím seeing that, but donít see how Iíd go about buying the parts to accomplish it. Are the calipers replaced, or is it just rotors and the carriers?

      Thanks for always chiming in with your experience
      Calipers, rotors, pads, lines. Itís effectively base Xc90 brakes.

      If you were looking for 305mm brackets which is just a bracket/rotor change thatís super easy. I can easily get a set of those used for you

      Iíll see how this setup works. If I still feel like they wonít cut it, I may order some 305mm rotors and take you up on that. Might also see if there are any XC90ís from that generation sitting at the pick n pulls and grab parts from that, but I doubt theyíre lying around.

      Thanks again

      I monitor the local LA and Inland Empire LKQ yards via their app and there's at least an XC90 or two that roll through weekly... I watch Sunland, Monrovia, Ontario, Fontana and one in the Santa Fe Springs area...

      Well, that certainly looks effective!

      Finally put some decent break-in miles on mine, Iíll see how they do this week with some harder stops.
