not quite,
the ba control arms and uprights are the same as au2 , but the rotors and calipers are different (ba slightly bigger)..
in saying that ba/bf and fg brakes can be bolted on to au2. I have fg xr8 brakes all round on my au..

Sorry to hijack here..
Troyman, what happened to the thread where you did this conversion on your Ghia? It was a S1 wasn't it? I'm considering this conversion to mine.
