I'm wanting to upgrade my brakes on my Ef2 Fairmont Ghia as have future plans to turbo.
So I'm wondering if people can let me know what my best option is?
I'm also wondering, if while I do this upgrade, how hard it is to change the offset to be able to fit Au onwards wheels, Seeing as the choice of wheels made in the Ef offset is getting very small.

Sorry if this has been covered before.

Thanks.

Send this chap a PM and see if he still has the Race Brakes kit for sale. You'll need put spacers on the back axle to match the big brakes AU offset if you're planning to use AU/BA/BF wheels.

Another option is to just use slotted DBA discs, good quality pads & maybe braided brake hoses (which I'm going to do soon).

I have been emailing the guy that sells the kits mentioned in this link.

"Kit has 330 mm x 28 mm slotted rotors, replacement uprights with new ball joints, hubs bearings and seals with the correct tone ring for your ABS if fitted. Caliper brackets and bolt kit, braided hoses, twin piston calipers and pads."

Is this what i want?

Also are spacer on the back safe? Dont want my wheels falling off haha

You can fit an AU diff which will give you AU offset in the rear without the need for spacer/adaptors.

If that is a Mr Spares kit off ebay will do the job. If you can afford the 343mm set up for sale on here at the moment would be well worth it and you can retain E series offset (although from memory the ebay one is only around a grand).
