Question what brakes

I have just decided to rebuild my front calipers and the one of the holes that the sliding pin go through has worn oval at one end. The brakes were a little juddery and I suspect that this is part of the problem.
My question is what brake calipers fit the EA (ie ea/eb/ef/el etc) or is there an a better caliper from another model. When I had a VN commodore we upgraded too VT twin pot calipers. So thats the type of thing I am looking for.
May be aftermarket calipers if they are not too expensive.

Hope someone can shead some light.

Re: what brakes

To make the conversion to the twin-piston (ford) setup, you will need:

- Aftermarket Swaybar (& possibly mounting points)
- 16" Wheels or Greater
- Lower Control Arms
- Uprights

I know that this can be done for EF/EL & AU1 as they had single-piston calipers up front.

I'm selling my AUIII Brakes, which include twin-piston calipers up front. And i know of a wreckers were you can buy the parts needed for the conversion. Otherwise, best bet would be to try a wreckers, for some E-Series Calipers, or ring Cebco about their brake packages (but you'd most likely need to upgrade the above, if you wish to get one of their packages).

AUIII Falcon Forte - 4.0L I6, Silver Star!

Re: what brakes

Unfortunately any major upgrades will cost $$$ due to the design of the E-series spindle which is specifically set up for that particular caliper.
