I'll be upgrading my brakes, so i'll no longer need my factory setup.

The setup consists of the following:

Twin-Pot Caliper up Front to hold a 287mm disc.
Single-Pot Caliper at the Rear to hold a 287mm disc.
I can supply a rubber brake line.
I can supply 2 x Premium 287mm slotted discs, with the elipse groove in them.
I can supply 4 x Standard 287mm rotors.

But for $100ea for DBA Slotted Rotors, i'd suggest you get all new rotors.

This setup would be great for a E-Series-AU1. To further make the conversion to the twin-piston setup, you will also need:

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

Darren/Nick, can help you with the other parts.

My new brakes will go on, early next month. So as soon as the calipers come off, i can meet up then.

Looking at $350 ono.

I'm located in the NE Suburbs. PM me or SMS me on 0417031514.

Picture by the way:

^^ I'll clean them over the next day or so.

Cheers

No there wasnt. So this set will fit straight onto a AUII (if your calipers are buggered). But for pre AUII, which includes AUI, the calipers up front only had a single piston caliper.

The brakes do pull up harder, than an AUI setup, even with standard discs on.

I also should mention, that the calipers have only travelled 6x,xxx kms.

Thanks

You'd need the following:
- Aftermarket Swaybar or (AU2/3 Spec) (& Swaybar mounting points)
- 16" Wheels or Greater (for the front)
- Lower Control Arms
- Uprights

I've been in my mates AU1, which is the same setup as E-Series with single pot calipers up front, and mine pulls up way harder, with just stock standard pads and discs on.

you have to reweld your calliper mounts, need to be pretty precise, thats why we are getting uprights modified for the new brake upgrade kits
