Hello
here are some pictures of my 2012 Escalade platinum with the brake kit
i removed the speed limiter and the first thing i noticed when i did that is the stock brakes are crap on high speeds , the steering shook like a washing machine with a brick inside it . they where not designed to go over the 100mph limit

the install was fairly simple , the only problems i faced is i had to cut the front heat shield between the disks and the arms , and i had to use a 1/4" spacer on the front wheels as this kit was designed for the normal Escalade Rims not the platinum

now the car STOPS like i just dropped an anchor from the back , i wish i have done this before

Holy ish look at the factory front rotors... Drive it like you stole it lol... You will definitely get your moneys worth on this upgrade not to mention some added safety driving like that
