Re: AU Premium package on Au S1

ok after spending an hour on fords parts database and on teh phone to barious brake ppl we have found:

the T series spindl assembly SHOULD bolt straight onto the AU S1 strut setup. we also found teh S1 came out with a premium package on the XR series. so anyone here with an AU S1 with premium brakes?

well basically i am looking for the part indicated in the picture attached ...

Ive never heard of a premium brake package on the series 1 XRs. The T spindils will fit in but any series 2 spindls will fit.....

Re: AU Premium package on Au S1

The only Twin Piston, Premium brake setup on the AU1 was the T series Twin pistons.

Evil, have you tried Cebco, they do the Spindles.
Whatever you do dont just cut off the lugs.

Re: AU Premium package on Au S1

cebco doesnt like selling their gear in parts ... either complete package or ...

well i have received new information and graphs, which opens new doors, tomorrow i gonna convince a mate to let me borrow his S3 and let me pull the brakes off :D

however i gonna keep the T spindle assymbly as backup option.

And dont worry i never even intended to cut of the lugs ... i have been suggested to that for the conversion, but i know a little of structural intergrity of metals and how they are casted, besides the S1 calipers are on the wrong side anyway

the project continues ... i hope by next week we gonna have an accetable solution ... keep yas posted. thx for the info
