Wow, those calipers came up looking great!! Should look good sitting behind the wheels over a set of drilled and slotted rotors. Looking forward to seeing them go on :wink:

Standard XR front springs and lowered King Spring Rears for XR.

It looked lower with the 16"s :roll:

Looking forward to seeing what you will do here, Id love to do that Au2 onwards brake upgrade and if I was feeling generous Id get a set of the 4 pot brembo's from the F6's, there was a set on boosted for $1200.

Hey George,
I just had a read through again, may have missed it though. With the BA calipers, what is need to fit to the AU? I know you needed the AUII parts but do you need the BA caliper mount? Or are the calipers mount the same as the AUII's?
What exactly is the difference too? Is it a larger pad, larger pistons or both?
Cheers,
Ash


All you need Ash is the Rotors and the calipers with the outrigger attached. Might be an idea to put the BA late model hoses as they have a steel coil around them. Other than that, everything else is the same. The Discs are 298mm as opposed to the 287mm of the AU I,II,III. There is also a different bore size in the BA later model caliper (2003 onwards).

The Disc pads are larger and a different shape, same as the front of the Territory.
