Stud Pattern

Is anybody running Falcon Stud pattern on the front Of their Escort/Capri?
How/What have you changed to do this? Have you upgraded the brakes in the process?

Re: Stud Pattern

Grey ESp

Yes (capri)
Brake discs calipers
Yes

You can buy a kit from the castlemain rod shop I think which comes with the instructions on how to modify an XF falcon disc brake hub. (need to have it machined slightly to move the position of the bearing), premade bracket which bolts to the strut where the old capri calipers bolt to then allows the XF brakes to bolt straight up.

The you buy some bearings and the disk and the calipers and your set. Very easy conversion. I think it is exactly the same of the escort.

An it keeps the same wheel offset.

Re: Stud Pattern

You can also use Zephyr disc brake hubs (If you can find any).. they are a direct bolt on swap with Capri Hubs but are falcon stud pattern.

Re: Stud Pattern

The Rod shop also do P76 rotor kit. Much easier to fit, and no machining required. While youare at it, get a set of capri front struts. The bolt straight in, and are 50mm shorter, a quick and easy way to lower your car.
