Hi guys,

Does anyone know if there is a bigger rear caliper avalable for the AU or BA falcon or some kind of twin piston caliper i adapt onto it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I dont think your rears really do much of the braking in a car where the majority of your mass is in front of the b pillars. keep the standard callipers and put ventilated disks in. its the fronts that get a canning on falcons.

I've got some territory rotors and calipers for the rear of mine. Haven't put them on yet, but afaik, the caliper size isn't really that different on the rear, the rotor is a bit bigger though.

with the terrtory rears are not neccesarily bigger but the piston size of the calipers is larger and there is more surface area in the pad section as well as on the rotor. so more friction can be produced. if you look closely on some XR6 turbo's they also use a rear territory caliper and rotor set up. ventilated rotors will make a difference but using some slotted DBA ones will also help as the slots and casting are better than standard.

Yeah i have a set of slotted rotors on the back but even with them the amount of work the rear do is minimal. I might see if i can get a hold of a rear territory caliper.
