GT Brakes

I have lined up ELGT Twin pot calipers. Now I know the disc's need to be up sized, I have been wanting to do this for ages.

Now are they (calipers) just a bolt on?
Is it as easy as replacing disc's and pads?

I am using 17" wheels, so clearence isn't a problem. The vehicle is a 1993 LTD and it has ABS. I have a bigger reservoir to go on too.

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Yep. You'll need the spindles (suspension uprights) callipers, discs and brake flex lines from the EL GT. The spindles are different - the EL GT ones are a different forging with two holes to acceptthe mounting bolts, rather than the standard 'ears'. Wheel bearings are the same - fit new ones. Master cyl should be okay - but double check diameter anyway. HTH
