Hi all...

Is there any way at all to upgrade the brakes on an EA-EB series falcon? I installed an R33 GTR brake upgrade on my mates 180sx and those were a direct bolt up replacement.

Do any of the later fords enable this same sort of upgrade?

steel

yes and no..
they dont just bolt right up, but you can get modified uprights and other bits n peices to allow ba rotors and holden calipers to fit (forgot what holden calipers)


look up mr-spares on ebay for his brake upgrade kits or alternatively look up the cebco brake upgrade kit (3k for that and 1.5k for mr-spares one)

Do the rear discs on the falcons have a drum operated park brake or not?

The EA-ED uses the rear caliper for the handbrake. The EF onwards has the inner drum brake arrangement.

If you get WHAT brake upgrade for the front and rear?
I'm not aware of any rear brake upgrads for any E-series.
AFAIK the handbrake set up is different between the early E-series and later.
