Default Land Rover - AP Calipers for 780

Does anyone know if there's been an attempt to use AP 4-Piston calipers on a 7 series?


Looking thru the J/K and found a Discovery Sport with solid calipers.

May pick them up to do some fitting but curious if they are similar/same as other types.

Thanks, Robie

Might work, might not. Did you get any measurements? You still hacking on that poor car's exterior?

Moved onto the interior. Back seats ripped out, trans Pan is still draining. haha

About to daisy chain up some rear amps. Fun, Fun

Calipers cost about $40 a piece, dont have it right now.

Are they radial mount or standard mount calipers?

Price sure seems right.... if they will work for you.

I have a spare set of hats, rotors and mounts for radial mount calipers I got with my kit from Sellholm.... May just be the shizzle on the 'Penalty Box' if some affordable radial mount calipers can be sourced.

Keep us posted!

Come to think of it, the truck wrecking yard by my house usually has a Disco or two, I might go take some measurements.

What year? These ones are 90-98. Very similar to the 240 calipers.

From what I can find out they have 2 inlet ports and fit a 298x24mm disc. Piston size is similar (41.2) to the double piston 740 calipers (40.4).
