Quote: Using the thinner rotors ( factory 90 v6) wont hurt your pedal travel (initially), but it will put the pistons out further. As you get to the end of your brake pads the calipers may not work right since the pads and the pistons are too far out.
The best plan is to use the rotors and the calipers from the 95 as a set.
I updated the brake info thread with the V6 3.5 rotor VS the V6 3.0 rotor.
Worst case is you have a 5 mm thinner rotor, that's with the rotor just cut and does not take into account wear.
I dont know exactly what having the piston and the pads out an extra .2" will do, but its not something you want to just take for granted and says its OK.
This is one the the key factors that determines how far rotors can be cut on a stock system. Remember the piston has to travel to account for wear on both pads. How will it work .2" further out when your at the end of your brake pads?
In the same thread Fast Eddy also pointed out the pads can drop out. Now we know for sure that it can happen.
