Re: brake upgrade

how much you wanna spend.
iam about to put xf stub axles and disc with xw cailipers into my te but from the car i got it the lower control arm had 10mm cut out of it to reduce the camber from the look of it but since i was chasing more then the adjsutment can give iam happy with that.
as for rear you have redrilled axels or falcon diff or 9in basicly i have redrilled but dont like the look of it but not enough meat around the wheel studs

Tongue Re: brake upgrade

hey there.....BIGBROWNBEAR,
just converted my te cortinas front brakes with series 8 rx7 4 spots and discs, they are a 5 stud pattern that is the same as ford falcon..
cost of 4 spot calipers from jap wreckers $380 a pair
cost of caliper supports $120/ 60 per side
cost of new dba slotted discs $165 each
these are decent size discs at 300mm
hope this helps
