Iv got an XH XR6. thinking about doing a front brake conversion, either au2 onwards or ba.
im guessing someone has done this conversion, just couldn't find it in the forums.
do the uprights just swap straight over?
how does it go with the offset as well?
will i have to get different offset rims or put spacers on the back, yeah?
will the later model master bolt onto the existing booster?

any help would be appreciated.
cheers.

It is not a bolt up thing.

you need to put the entire AU front suspension and K frame in, and it requires alot of work.

would be good to see someone post up their build of an AU front brake/susp/kframe set up put into an E/XH series.
Veg, if you do it mate a quick step by step write up here would be appreciated by many.

cheers
