Conversion hubs  = The heart of any brake upgrade, generally the stock rotor milled down to accept a floating rotor

Conversion bracket = flat steel brackets that allow the use of non stock calipers on your spindles.

Bracket clearancing = this is machining required to the caliper so the conversion bracket can fit both the caliper and the spindle.

Rotor hole enlargement = late model brakes use a smaller pilot hole on the rotors, so to utilize them we need to expand this hole precisely to fit the hub
