Rotors themselves cost heaps, slotted dba's in 330mm; id like to see this done for sure!
Is the solely front brakes or front and back?

so are you guys trying to make up a kit that uses a cheaper spindle or a more comon spindle?

so do the mustang uprights fit, is it the points at the top and bottom where it rotates that are different or were the rack bolts to ?


sorry bout s**t questions i jave read the whole thing but when you have not been in thread or take offline as much as you guys its hard to understand sorry....

We're looking for something that'll fit easily.

Them ustang brakes are the same as used on various EL models (GT and FBT), so most of the work is already done, it's just a matter of sourcing spindles/uprights cheaply - if you were ok spending $1,400 on ELGT parts you could get them from Ford.

Try ordering $700+ each spindle + second hand ($200ea caliper) or $550+ new calipers each side + rotor.

Its more expensive then Cebco, and thats a rip off! lol

should'a clarified more...

if you're ok spending $700 each on ELGT uprights, AND adding calipers, dics, ... ... ... then you can get 'em from Ford.

Those Twin Piston ELGT Calipers are as common as dog s**t, your getting ripped if paying $550 each! :shock:
Check Ebay, in the US they go for about $200 a pair new. Same goes for the rotors which are about the same price.
Even if it costs $100 to ship (wouldnt even be half that I though I think) your still well ahead of any local pricing.

Just need cheap spindles :(

LOL - this is funny...everyone is talking about 'how easy' it is to source this and that...but very little on here have done this conversion either through cebco or sourcing their own components...all you DREAMERS - put your money where your mouth is and then post some results - I don't see anyone other than Fusion doing any R&D here :!:

Cheers,
Steve
