Do BA rear calipers bolt up to an AU. Iv been told yes Iv been told No. Can anyone give me a definitive answer. Looking to upgrade my rear brakes as they are s**t and iv had the fronts rebuilt already. Cost WAY too much. Was better off buying second hand ones. Thanks guys

If you have a live rear axle you CAN fit BA rear wagon/ute brakes but you will either need to change the backing plate or put a washer between the calipers where they bolt on, the chnage of backing plate is much better.

I cant answer for the IRS but I guess you could use the washer method to space the caliper.
I have an AU I XR6 with live axle and will be changing mine soon, I have the backing plates from a BA wagon to do the job.

The backing plates are available NEW from Ford. L/H BA 2212 C $128.40, R/H BA 2211 C $130.44
More than likely you could pick up a set from BA wagon or ute for a lot less. :)

I couldn't see why you couldn't get the calipers to fit your backing plate but you may have to space them out with a washer OR, chnage the whole backing plates but that I can't guarantee.

only if it's not a hassle of course.
I've been told terry brakes will fit on my live axle AUII ute.

You would have to change the backing plate and get a High Series brake Ute or wagon one and also the dust shield. There is a little difference between the Territory Caliper and the High Series Ute/Wagon type but I am guessing you could use the Territory one?

The Backing plates are R/H BAFC2 2C220 A $217.10, L/H BAFC2 2C221 A $217.10, Dust Shield R/H BAFC 2A481 A $31.85, L/H BAFC 2T001 A $31.85.

Those prices are full retail and I am sure that you could get these from a Wreckers like FTG?
Hope that this helps :)
