Does anyone else do these kits to suit ? or can you fit bigger brakes from another model falcon that will simply bolt on without to much hassle.
Those kits suck and you cant fit 14" wheels over them. The 300mm kit I have has tiny pads, only very slightly larger then stock pads. Braking improvement is marginal at best. There is almost a whole inch of disk that the pads done even touch so it goes rusty. There are little tabs that they dont tell you about but they know they cut into and score the disks instantly. Dont bother with them.
