How easy are they to bolt on to an AUII XR8??
And do I need to consider the rear stocko brakes...

Carlos,


obviously more costly but worth it to do the rears...but in saying that this sort of upgrade would still be fantastic even if just for the fronts...grab yaself some good performance pads for the rears and you'll be right....braided brake lines all round would also be a consideration....just comes to how pressed your budget is

Don't want to be throwing too much at brakes... just had enough of the XR stocko's - and this seems attractable!

Definetly no drama's fitting them on the AUII?

Carlos,

yes we still have them , i have been able to get them down to $650 per set


wow that is a good price ... these PBRs Darren are they just a twin piston setup or quad piston calliper?


they are Twin piston but 322mm is still a massive improvement.

Darren Ill give you a call next week to organise a set are you able to separate the kits not realy after standard lines or pads?

Cheers
Mark

Mate read it properly, he's saying SLOTTED not solid :)

And from the first pic you can see that the rotors are vented so they are probably the fronts...

O.K. by Darren saying that they're solid he means that there a flat rotor ie not slotted.

And from AU onwards the front brakes didnt have bearings in them, they are just aa hat that goes over the wheel studs like the rears, but no hand brake drum of course :)
