TE50/TS50/250 Pursuit Brembo Brakes ONTO au2 XR8

Hey guys,

Has anyone, or does anyone know whats involved in fitting those huge 355 x 32mm vented and cross-drilled discs with huge four-pot calipers at the front, and rear where the vented discs are 330mm and the calipers still four-pot From a TS50/250Pursuit Ute onto a Series 2 AU XR8.

I want to know if the disks just simply slide on inplace of the standards, and the calipers just bolt on, or does the whole sub axle need to be changed. What else? brake lines? Master Cylinder?

Cmon Guys, i want big brakes, and if i can get these over the counter from ford(As their fitted factory to the TE/TS50 and 250 Pursuit utes, im sure engineering certificate wont be a problem.

Let me know if you've done it, or u know what needs to be done

Oh yeah. i know you need 18" wheels to clear the caliper :>

Are you sure you want these brakes - there is a thread on this site somewhere that details problems with these brakes. The major problem is that the discs only last about 20-30,000 km before they need changing. That's discs, the pads would probably need changing at the same time. You may be better off with DBA discs or similar (No, I don't work for DBA).

Yeah, you'd have to want them real bad for the cost of fitting and the cost of continually relacing them - they wear out so damn fast.

OK, so the disks run wear out real quick...

so i could get aftermarket replacements of the same size.. but that wasnt my initial question, how do i get a large setup like that, and i mean, the 4 spot calipers, and the huge disks.. not only the front, but all around. i mean, technically it should all bolt together without a need for adaptors to fit the calipers.

I mean, i could always get harrop/DBA/whatever disks rather than the standard ford ones, if the ford ones wear out so quickly
