Probe 2.5 rear brakes

Post by Chris sabey » Mon Apr 25, 2022 3:43 pm

Hi, where can I get some racing standard rear brake discs and calipers please?
Looking to upgrade from normal brakes to some much better ones 👍

Some people in have fitted Mazda 6 front callipers and discs which is useful and relatively inexpensive upgrade which is quite straightforward, but I’m not sure if the rears also fit.

I think that there has also been someone who did a Brembo upgrade but that is more involved.

is the Mazda6 conversion bolt on or are there modifications required?

Mazda 6 ‘big brakes’ are a direct fit, if you get the right model/year
iirc, 2lt. Diesel :?: :?:

Tbh are there many out there still with the Mazda 6 upgrade?
I think most that did back in the day ditched it and went back to normal….. :|
Know I did……and there was no upgrade for rears….

What are you looking to achieve, cheapest, quickest option is to just buy the best quality or sport rated discs/pads ie ebc red yellow or green…….
