Thinking of upgrading the rear brakes on BA XR8.

Has anyone tried to install Territory Rear Callipers and Rotors on a BA?

I know that you need to trim the backing plate needs to be trimmed to accomodate the larger calliper, are there any other issues?

Any information would be much appreciated.

:D :D :D

If you're on fordforums, then there's a great thread in there about BA/BF/Territory brakes onto AU - same principles apply.

I've been told though that it's all straight fit, but I'm now receiving conflicting information from wreckers, so I'll have to keep investigating.

Thanks...

Just read the entire thread. It should be a staight bolt on according to the thread but the height of the territory rotor is 8mm more than the BA.

I have a suspicion the rotor may foul the backing plate.

I run Territory brakes fine on mine, you just loose your spare as they need 17" rims to clear.. it all just bolted straight on otherwise. I don't have dust covers anymore tohugh.

fnp,

My BA MKII XR8 has 17" rims, rim size is not an issue. I have Premium (PBR C6 callipers) in the front.

What car have you got? BA MkI or MkII?

Is this an easy enough thing to do yourself?

the issue with the rim is with the standard 16" steel spare rim that 90% of XR's come with. His is a BA MK1.
I installed the territory gear on his XR, and you will need new backing plates for the rear, as well as rotors, callipers, pads and brake hoses.
