yes (EL Futura), DBA, can't remember, it was all part of a ~$900 service.

Some of the best money I've spent.

$1200 holy s**t!!!!!!!!! I got that setup for a non ABS for $720 from Perth Brake Parts and it only cost $50 for installation. I think the Brake Gods were smiling on me that day.

I got all new pads, one new rear caliper, new fluid and two new front DBA cross drilled and slotted rotors for $750.

Mine is an EF Fairmont with ABS, the brakes are identical to the EL.

I run rda sloted rotor x4 better than dba's because the slots go to the
out side edge of the rotors and I curently run bendix ultimates but
are going to try EBC Green stuff next time as they arn't as hard on
the discs and they are supose to work better when cold than ultimates

The slots go to the edge also in DBA's and they cost $120 per rotor.

WOW, $1200... I'm looking at $350 this weekend for the front's and probably the same for the back. That's new DBA slotted rotors, Bendix Advance's, new bearings, fitted!

Helps to to go someone who owns an EL, and to really know the mechanic well... :D Oh, and to not go to a Ford Dealership anymore! :lol:
