take a wheel off and take a pic...
it might look like drum from behind but from factory they are not drum..
considering even the 1988 series 1 ea wagons had disc brakes on the rear..

:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
I have just made the biggest pelican out of myself!!!!! :roll: Yes they are indeed disk on there....
but Christ are they tiny!
The wagon I saw the other day must have had a brake upgrade or something because they looked MASSIVE compared to these pissy little things.
Deepest apologies to everyone and no doubt a good laugh is being had at my expense, I know I laughed when I took the wheel off and realized I'd made a total d**k of myself!!
Well I need to go and find a quiet cupboard now, and hide my shame..... :)

Incorrect about the utes. I had a 93 XF (was right on the XG changeover) and it had rear drums.

Yeah they were always optional but not standard.
I had a P6 LTD that had rear discs. Doesnt mean all XC's come standard with them.
