Re: Disc Brakes on XT Falcon
This brings back memories as my first car was an XT fairmont wagon.
Ford had an option in this series of solid discs at the from which were a two piston design, changing pads on these was a breeze. All you had to do was to pull out two circlips and the two sliding pins and out they came.
Never did like that setup, so we pulled the brakes of a ZG Fairlane and put these on. This conversion involved the entire stub axle assembly and caplipers, ball joints may have to be changed as well. Sorry I cant remeber this detail as it 14 yrs since I performed this. Rims will have to be changed as the bearing carrier is a larger diameter than the one on the XT series, making fitment of the original rims impossible.
A better solution may be to investigate whether the stub axles from an XF fit and match, if they do then this would be my choice.
Any other questions please let me know.
