Gday guys.

I am contemplating a budget brake upgrade using a pair of twin pistons calipers on the front.

Basically I am looking at adapting them on the front in a different position in regard to where the original sit. I will be looking at something similar to dogbones to relocate them to either close to 12 o'clock or 8-9 o'clock (looking from the outside at drivers side wheel).

Any disadvantage with the location of caliper on the rim?

Im not keen to step up the size of the rotor due to that crap arrangement E series have, nor do i wanna upgrade my rim size.

Might be looking for nissan or possibly ford/holden twin piston to suit...
