AUII Uprights on ED

Can anyone tell me if AUII uprights will fit onto an ED XR6, front end.

Now ive got the 17's, i can fit some decent brakes inside. I am after the twin piston setup.

Cheers
Kerry

Interesting question TIKFD6 but sorry I don't have answers.

If you have just got 17's with an E-series offset I don't see how that would work with an AU upright/brake package as they require wheels with a different offset.

While on the subject anyone know if the whole k-member/front suspension/engine subassembly from an AU would unbolt and bolt up to an E-series. None of this manifold swapping stuff for Raptor, I like to think big.

E-Series wheels should go onto AU, the offset would be greater on the outside though, could rub on the guards. AU are offset inwards (like FWD), they might rub on upright or inner guard on E-Series.

I think TIKFD6 would be better trying to buy an aftermarket brake upgrade package that is already designed for his particualr car rather than trying to adapt AU onto ED.
Just my opinion.

Yeah good point Falchoon.
The wheels would be placed further out which will also cause them to swing in a greater arc when turning so interference could also occur at the front & rear of the front wheelwells.

Not a good idea IMHO.

Go aftermarket or EL-GT uprights & calipers (if you can still get them).

I priced ELGT calipers the other day $850 a PIECE, SEE WHY I ASKED THE QUESTION.

if they dont it looks like Cebco will be the lucky winner, $2000 here we come.

I am reliably informed that the front uprights (i.e. shock/spring assy) are interchangable from EA to AU, although I have not actually tried this myself. Crossmembers and other suspension components (contol arms, z-arms etc) are not interchangable as far as I am aware.

The offset difference between up-to-EL and AU-onwards wheels is 30mm, so they are not interchangable at all, although the stud pattern is the same.
