front brake upgrade....

Did a search an didn't quite understand if the DA front brakes would work on the sedan.

Also if they do what else do I need??brake booster, master cylinder, brake lines??

Because theres an automatic 92 DA four door at the junk yard but are the brakes the same between auto and stick??

i know the disc brake rotors are the same size! as for calipers should be the same size because brake pads are the same part number at autozone they checked it for me. brake lines they'll fit i got earls stain less steel line for a DA. my brothers ef is using the complete DA front brakes. as for booster and slaves mastercylinder havent messed with that yet. im still using stock set up with cross drilled and stainless steel front brake lines. made a hug differences. stop faster then before also dont feel the pads losing grip to rotor on the speeding on freeway (racing). dont need that AEM big brake kit  i aint picky cause its not a track car its ment for daily use. hawk pads and project u i thinks called are pads i had no issues with good luck

I don't know how the sedan managed to stop with those pissy things on the left. Mine barely makes do with the ones on the right.

odd, my car was ok with the smaller ones, it just bugged the heck out of me that I could have bigger ones...  Laughing

my stopping power is extremely sharp, too sharp and the wheels will lock and rubber burns I also have a bigger MC and 3540 prop valve.

i think you know this...  Laughing

It's probably the extra weight i carry. I wouldn't mind some DC discs up front.
