  • XR2 Brake Swap Pictures

    I decided to swap to the Capri XR2 Front Brakes on my White Car because I wanted to keep the 4x114.3 Bolt Pattern so here are some pics of the Hubs and stuff.

      99% of the time you have to run at least a 14" wheel with these brakes and the Rotor is captured just like the Festiva but I wouldn't call it an issue. They are easy to change with pretty cheap tools and it only takes about an hour to completely rebuild one once you have done it a few times.

      From what I was told some of the 323 brakes can be used with 13" wheels but I am not sure if they are captured or not and they aren't as easy to find anymore.

        I use to run XR2 brakes. You need an upgraded Master cylinder. Also weird thing is you have to run Aspire LCAs and pre-compress the suspension to get the knuckle bolts in. It never affected anything but an odd step regardless.
        Current cars:

        1993 Ford Festiva 5-Speed - Festiclese III - Cousin of the Banhammer - "The Jalopnik Car"
        1984 Toyota Cressida - 2JZGE Swap, Turbocharged.
        2013 Mazda Mazda2 - Exhaust and Wheels (the daily)
        2002 Toyota Tundra - V6/Auto/2WD - The Tow Vehicle.

          Yeah the Aspire LCAs are slightly longer which sucks because the Aspire LCAs are a lot more expensive than the Festiva ones. 2 Festiva LCAs will run you about $75 shipped where Aspire is about $170 shipped...

          I have a Capri booster and an Aspire booster but I am not sure which one I will run yet.

                The wheel hub itself has to be pulled off of a donor car. I found these at the junkyard. You should be able to buy everything else new from Rockauto.com

                Someone mentioned swapping some Mitsubishi Galant stuff onto the Capri wheel hub to get rid of the captive rotors but I don't know the details on that swap.
