Hi guys,
I have searched high and low for an answer to this question without success and I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to know.

Does anybody know of other vehicles that use the same Brembo 6 pot (front), 4 pot (front) & 4 pot (rear) calipers as Ford use?

Reason being, if you're like me and can't afford the over inflated Australian prices for parts, you can get cheaper Brembo's from the UK and other places O/S.

Well, I am sure that the calipers do share likes with ones made for other vehicles but the hard part is getting the right brake caliper brackets to bolt them on and Ford does NOT sell them.

Thanks Papa,
I'm fortunate in that regard as I already have the brackets, just need the calipers.

hey mate, contact Justin at Tuff carparts - sales@tuffcarparts.com.au

He is selling Brembo kits at the moment for BA-FGs and would probably be able to answer your question for you.

Cheers

Phil

Quite cheap I thought for a front set - The kit is $2399 + freight. Brembo 6 piston calipers, Brembo 355mm slotted discs and goodridge braided lines with factory pads and the two adapters (that he will fit).

Sorry please note his email address is sales@tuffcarparts.com

Oh wow! thats strange they cost different depending on the side, thought they would be the same price, but yes Justin is much cheaper hahaha, if i didnt just finish off upgrading my brakes i would consider it but I think it wouldnt clear our rims though
