Hi All

I am looking at getting some RDA slotted rotors for my BF Falcon Sedan, im going to stick with the stock calipers (which are actually PBR to my surprise :D). How much should I be looking at to get the RDA slotted rotors supplied and fitted? I might just start with the front first and do the back at a later stage.

Just after some pricing advice

Cheers

Phil

dunno about RDA rotors but i paid about $130ish each for DBA units from memory. ohh and you'll find all falcons have PBR brakes, even mums EA. It's who ford use to make their brakes.

i got a 'no-name' set off ebay cross drilled n slotted for $140 delivered. if you can change a wheel you can change a rotor, it's only another 2 bolts. and possibly a g-clamp & a few other assorted easy to source bits n pieces.
haven't even gotten round to doing the rear yet and results are still fantastic. i'd replace the front flexi lines with braid before i touch the rears.

I have been quoted $300 supplied and fitted for a front pair of RDA slotted rotors for my BF which has the bigger brakes than the BA, i think ill get someone professionally to do it, i dont really want to stuff around with my brakes when they are so crucial

Yep - I believe PBR supply all the calipers to Ford.
It's just a matter of spec.

My BAMk2 XR6 has stock PBR calipers and rotors which I am upgrading to a larger set of PBR calipers and slotted RDA rotors - I got the kit from FTG for $780

Fitting should be easier than it was when I did the rotor swap on my EF because with the BA's the rotor just slips on - no repacking bearings or any of that sh!t

Just need to wait till my Dad has some time, mainly to help with bleeding brakes after install.

you can get one man brake bleeder setups pretty cheap.never used them though so i cant comment really hehe.
my ea spac has pbr calipers & master cylinder from factory. would find alot of other cars do to. clutch assembly to i think.

my bf has 298mm rotors, is that bigger than the ba's ? or is it the bfII that gets the bigger ones ?
