Re: Brake Upgrade

Im looking to upgrade my brakes to larger rotors and calipers. I would be intrested to hear any referrals or tips on the parts to use. I current have 17" rims so space should not be an issue hopefully.

95 EF

Mods: Pacemaker extractors, lukey cat back system. DBA Slotted rotors front & back.

Re: Brake Upgrade

Im wanting to upgrade my brakes on my xy fairmont gt ive been told that if i want to remain using 14 and 15 inch wheels my options are limited so heres a thought

considering im limited to my choices how would i go using xc cast iron pbr calipers with the xc hand brake set up also i want to go 4 wheel disc so do i look for the rear set up from an xd falcon and if so what will i need from the xd to convert my rear im running a 9 inch on the xy any assistance would be greatly valued

Re: Brake Upgrade

I purchased a set of brackets on Ebay, along with drilled mustang rotors and Chevy S 10 calipers, 1967 Galaxie master cylinder for disc brakes and a booster it performs very well on my 1964 galaxie

Will work with 15"" rim size or bigger.

I'm pretty sure the rear disks from an XF will bolt onto your 9"
You need to use a wider rear bearing seal to allow for the thicker caliper mount bracket
You also need to weld brackets for the cable onto the diff housing
An XF handbrake cable will fit with some work - or you could get the caliper hooks fitted to your XY cable.
