Have a good and safe trip George. Nice time of the year to hit the road. I'm sure you'll be busy working on those brakes when you get back home :D


I will, believe me. I am amassing the goodies now. I have 3 more things to get and that is it.
4 nuts, 8 bolts and two swaybar D brackets.

Finally today I finished the job of adding BA brakes, lower control arms, stub axles and sway bar to Lucifa. It has taken me a long time to get around to it and I guess people would think I am OLD and slow, I am :D
While I was at it, the new SL springs went into the front, looks so much better now as the front has come down considerably. Here are some picks.

Looks great. Did it all go smoothly? I'm keen to hear how they compare to the original gear.

Well, no more pulling to the left and I find that the brakes are MUCH more responsive. Something I made sure I did when I cleaned the front was to clean up the ABS sensors, so many people miss cleaning them, even some mechanics :)

Great to hear George and all looks very neat and tidy!!
How do they go? Should be a huge improvement over the AU1 set-up.

Thanks guys, was worth the effort, now I need to do the rears, change the Calipers and Discs to BA. I also have a Tickford AU Master Cylinder, 25mm bore as opposed to 22.87, that should add some more oomph to the brakes. :)

Good to see George!
What is the Tickford M/C from? Is it badged Tickford or is there any other descriptive labelling?

There is no Tickford label of any kind but it is 25mm bore. I will have a look tonight when I get home and see what numbers are stamped into it, they are also the same for XR with Ind rear suspension.

Really? Becuase I have an AU1 XR6 here ith IRS. Will it still have it even though it is an AU1? OR was it only AU2/3?

AFAIK, it is XR6/8 series 1, as the boster changes in AUII/III
