Sierra brakes. Need some info please.
« on: September 20, 2014, 21:06:06 PM »
Hopefully there are some people who know their sierras on here, as I'm after some information.
I'm building a better brake kit for my capri, and can't find good pads.
The front and rear callipers are from a Sierra diesel estate. Every time I look for good pads they only list cosworth brakes. Are either the front or rear brake callipers the same on a cosworth and an estate?

If not where can I get good fast road pads for these callipers?
I've got green stuff on the front, and the rears I'm in the middle of making them fit, but I don't feel green stuff are all that good.

The capris is running a BOA V6 so I need it to stop.

All Sierra rear calipers are the same, including the cosworth.
