Ok, I remember hearing something about the '05-'07 Escapes having rear disk brakes. Is this true? If so, wouldn't it be possible to swap the drums out for the disks?
I too, have read articles. That state, there is no advantage with 4 wheel disc's vs Front disc rear drum set-up for passenger cars and trucks.jonas1022 said:I was reading a test of the newer Escape online magazine, and they show the stopping distance to be equal to the drum brakes. So, imo there is no advantage. Except for maybe shows.
Great Idea BC.........Big Chris said:Save your money and just paint the drums & front callipers. :thumb:
One article, that I do remember was in the Detroit Free-Press. When, ?????? But it was about GM going back to drums for pick-ups. It stated that, there was no difference in braking operation and that it was also "cheaper" etc. I do not remember the Escape being named as one of them. The others?? I just don't remember the specifics. But they were basically the same info. I'll try searching tonight for them.....jonas1022 said:PK, do you remember where you read those articles? I was drawing a blank and wanted to post a link, but couldn't remember where it was that they tested the Escape with the rear disks... :shrug:
