BBK Front Only

Does anyone have a BBK only in the front? The reason I ask is due to my wheel fitment. My rear wheels (spokes) would interfere with the caliper and using a spacer would require serious rear fender modification.

Does this look out of place? Does anyone have a photo with just a front big brake kit installed?
Would this cause a imbalance of braking?

Thanks guys!

How do you know it won't clear? Did you printed out a template to do the measuring? And yes! It will look out of place with just the front BBK.

I used a PDF file, cut out the piece and did the measurement -- no go.

I was looking for a photo of the entire vehicle with only the front brake kit installed.

(I suppose I should have posted this in the brakes section)
