Default New age Front brembo calipers on the rear

has anyone put a set of front new age brembo calipers on the rear? looking at putting a set of Ap 6 pot's on the front and pondering on upgrding the rears by putting the front claipers on the back, i realise it will need adaptors, but has anyone done it?

This sounds interesting; don't see why you couldn't machine something up to retrofit them, let us know how you get on!

Hi
No it cannot be done , you would need a huge diameter disc to fit if you could mount the brackets to the hubs , but then the piston size is too big for a rear caliper and you would never stop it locking the rear wheels up , the front calipers are totally wrong for a rear fitment
Hope this helps
Cheers Ian

As Ian said, you really don't want to be locking the rear wheels up. Don't go too big on the rears, std brembo rears will be fine with a decent front setup.

Same answer , calipers and pistons too big for rears

As above , STi Brembo rears will suit most people , the AP 4 pot is the next step up , but these use a small 4 pot caliper with small pistons , which fit on a 335mm one piece AP disc
