Anyone use the Caliperfexion brake bolt kit?

I just bought (and am gambling on as I have not yet found anyone else using them) a front brake bolt caliper kit from Caliperfexion that I will be putting on the car. I plan on trying to hit several track days a year with this car so this seems like it will save me some headache but I wanted to see if anyone else had experience with them

The cool parts are:
- there is now a stud with an ARP nut and washer instead of the factory bolt so easier to work with/on (9/16" 12 point)
- there are screw on extensions to the stud so you can simply slide the caliper over when changing brakes and don't need to hold or find a way to hang the caliper.

These are their pictures that sold me on giving them a shot.

I had them installed but have changed the brake pads myself yet. It's a worthwhile mod if plan to do any tracking (not to mention having to use brand new Ford torque to yield bolts every time you change pads seems like a PITA).

Someone is late to the party.

You will need two sets. One for the car and the other to show off to people at Cars & Coffee.

Yes, I currently have them installed on my GT350. They are def a quality piece and a much needed one. I have taken my calipers off twice and even from two times of removing them, the aluminum knuckle had already started shedding a small amount of material. This gives me piece of mind as I no longer have to remove the bolts. I have yet to do a pad change with them so can't comment there but I would imagine it will be a breeze.

Sorry if this is common knowledge - did a search for Caliperfexion and nothing came up.

This car is both my first Mustang and my first Ford. Excuse my ignorance.

They are new - you purchase them separately. Just email them and they can help you get a set.

Nope, never heard of them. What is this sorcery you speak of? *slightly sarcastic*

I have them and like them. I have yet to see how they hold up over time, but initial quality and shipping/packaging were terrific.

Yep, that about sums it up.

It makes for an easy brake job. Glad you discovered them.
