Hey All, Might be a stupid question but would factory HSV Brembo's or AP Racing brakes off any newer model HSV work on an fg xr6 turbo ute? Reason I ask is that I'm looking for a decent upgrade over stock and the stock brembo's off a vf ss are cheap for what they are second hand. I would imagine at a minimum you would need to get some dog legs made up. Is this worth it or should I go for a different set up? Any help would be greatly appreciated Cheers
Hey lads Happy new year soon! But car parts is life lol. So I am in dire need for new rear rotors and brake pads all round as I'm getting heavy shudder, I took it into a mechanic who put front dba t3 rotors on and new crap repco brake pads all round and have been back 4 times to try and figure out why the shudder. I got the rear stock brembo rotors machined, no help. I gave up on mechanics and decided just to do things myself. I changed them out with another set of second hand rotors, no go too. So I'm just going to change them out with some new DBA t3 rear rotors and brake pads all round and see if that fixes it. However I've done some research on brake pads and HOLY sh*t there is a lot to choose from! So my question is to all the barra gods out there is, where should I start??? I'm heavy on the brakes often but no track days as of yet and I hate hate hate brake dust!!! I have learnt ceramic is the way to go for little brake waste and am willing to pay a bit extra to get good performance with no rim muck........ I'm in Brisbane, has anyone had any dealings with Brakes direct? or know anywhere that does rotors and brake pads at a reasonable price? P.s. I've got 4 pot brembo fronts and 1 pot OEM rear. Cheers
Could anyone share their front brake line length (FG) from Performance Ford package to 4 pot AP Racing CP6600 Calipers? Looking to upgrade my front stoppers on my FG ute. Would like get all parts ordered in one go but having difficulties getting info if longer lines are required.
I have a fg xr6t which has the 4pot brembo brakes in the front. Last week I dropped the car off at ford to get the diff bush replaced, a day later an annoying squeal started when braking. Now it has got worse and louder, when turning left without even touching the brakes the screeching noise still happens. When the steering wheel is straight or turning right, there is no noise. ford said they didnt touch the front end when replacing the rear diff bushes so I can't really blame them, cars also out of warranty. If I had to take a guess, I'd say noise is coming from the front. To test this theory I splashed a bucket of water onto the front wheels then went for a drive, the squealing stopped for a good minute then started again. front pads still have 40% left and rears have 60% left Any ideas?
