yes someone has made the au1 to au2 upgrade

it quite easy u need au 2 calipers( or get some vt calipers they are the same )/rotors the au 2 uprights and stub axles
also need teh au 2 sway bar
i think you have to drill 1 or 2 holes for the au2 sway bar to mount it

You'll also need to upgrade to 16s or higher, and need new suspension parts. So i've heard, but best speak to an expert. Theres a place in Melbourne, where you can get a full pbr performance package for $1785, not sure whether that's fitted or not.

you need to change the lower control arms also to fit these brakes.
we can supply the kit from a BA or a AU to fit au series 1 but there not cheap. best to go for the BA as they have slightly larger rotors
prices are as follows

lower control arms $300 each ouch!!!
stub axles $175 each
rotors $45 each
calipers $75 each
sway bar & fittings $100

total $1290
and if you say your from fordmods when you order i throw $50 fordmods way

I would of thought that only the steering knuckle ( stub axle ). Hub assembly, rotor & caliper for the swap over. Does the AU2 on have a different offset on the lower control arm or different lwr ball joint.
