Well the conversion was a success! It now stops like a new truck, the only fitment issue was the stock wheels clearing the calipers. The spacers seem to work fine, I took it out for a drive and had no issues, I am definitely happy that I went with the kit. Thanks to everyone for the advice and to mikebte for texting me the photos of his.

I have it up on jack stands, taking the wheels in tomorrow for new tires. Thought I would take a picture of the master cylinder mounted.
