Yeah fg rear calipers to au I already have an m80 diff from an fg bolted in the rear so I don't need to change the rear back plates

You can use the hoses but I would recommend getting fg hoses to be safe. Brakes are important don't cheap out.

I've already brought all the hose's the front two fit fine and same with the rear drivers side but the rear passanger doesn't fit it's a different connection on the brake line side but exact the same on the caliper side, so I've just used the au line, I want to know what the difference with the actual hoses are ? Are the bigger diameter ?

Did you use FG brakes on the front?

Information is all over the place on this topic but as far as I can tell, the BF XR8/XR6T bolt straight up but the FG equivalent callipers need to be reversed left to right. No idea about hoses. Different people say different things.

Cheers

If you get stuck, just take your hoses to ABS brakes.
They can make a custom hose with the required fittings each end and at whatever length needed.
Have done this a heap of times.
I usually have the teflon stainless braided hose type (Aust std so roadworthy) but I understand they can do rubber as well.
Otherwise you can also purchase custom "build your own" from HEL for around $60 each.

Cheers muzza. I ended up sorting it out the rear au hoses are the same the fg, I've got ba brakes on the front with ba hoses and on the rear I have fg brakes with au hoses and every thing works fine
