Default BA BF C5 325mm Brake Kits cheap

As the heading says we have brake kits available for the BA and BF model vehicles which could also be fitted to AU11 AU111 and even FG.
The brake kits are the same size as was fitted to the BA GT fords with the C5 twin piston caliper and the 325mm x 32mm disc and the same front kit in the PBR PK kits for this model.

There are only a very limited amount of kits available (4 only)

First in first served thankyou

$1000 which are priced to go.
PBR Red C5 calipers with pads X 2
PBR Slotted 325mm discs X 2
Goodridge braided front lines X Pair


FYI-The calipers are new old stock and shop soiled which means they are still brand new but have minor marks and chips on them and they are red with the pbr logo on them. Hence the clearout prices as these kits are worth much more than these.

Wow that's great buying, I would love to get some of these, but would only be able to in the next couple of weeks and I'm sure they'd be gone by them, Fantastic price though!

They should fit but you can always bring a rim down and we can check.

Awesome!! Im due for new discs and pads for my standard POS brakes, and these dont look much more expensive then what i was going to buy

Will give you a call in a week one i get the car back in the shed (mainly because im not sure how much its going to cost to get it back so i may need to wait for the next pay run before picking these up :P)

Cheers!

How would these compare on an fg xr6 upgraded to xr6t calipers with dba 4000 discs and bendix heavy duty pads in terms of cost and performance? Reason I ask is my local wrecker gave me a call and said he just got a set of calipers of an fg xr6t that I can get for a steal but would still need discs, pads and (possibly) lines.

I think the BA GT brakes are a better upgrade as the brakes are "stronger" as they are 325mm x 32mm compared to the XR6T which are 322mm x 28mm and the calipers in the BA GT kit are also a better caliper and for $1000 it is a steal.
As you need to buy rotors,pads and lines you will pay anywhere from $350 to $700 if using slotted rotors and depending on brand etc plus the cost of your second hand calipers you need to buy that may or may not need overhauling. The PBR front BA GT kit has all those parts but better quality with braided lines.
Either kit will improve your braking and that is the main benefit its just the BA GT kit will be a step over the FG XR6T kit.



As of today we only have one kit left.

Thanks for your help with these and your prompt delivery up to Brisbane - excellent service!

Hey, what's a good replacement pad? The PBR Performance pads work well, but are made from pepper. Excellent caliper too.

You can purchase RDA rotors or DBA in the 325mm size with plain or slotted available.

Hey Mate

Was wondering if you could help us out with some info.
Ive got a 2005 BA XR8 2 with the factory premium brakes.
Im Needing to replace the front rotors n pads and the rear pads.
Im interested in the DBA clubspec T2/3 4000 slotted rotors.
And im after a pad that will allow me to do some club/track days without devouring the disks, im not overly concerned about dust or brake noise.

Cheers Marco
