Commercial Axle on an MPV
I've stopped using Brembo, don't rate them at all any more. The last few sets I've put on have been ATE and tI've been really happy with them.
So I went up to IMAxles today, really helpful, knowledgeable folks. Gave me a few pointers on doing the swap, The axle was labelled as being for an XTR or Escapade, I decided I was overthinking it a bit too much, so I'm just going to whack it on regardless of what I might be loading the van up with in the future.
Sucking eggs I'm sure .... Lol !!

Make sure you fit new brake flexi hoses whilst the axle swap is being done.
Definitely, it's a once in a lifetime chance to change all the brake hoses at the back without having to grow a third elbow!
Axles in, we had to bite the bullet and go in through the boot floor to get a couple of captive nuts to play ball, but it is what it is.

Just waiting for the (correct) wheel bearings to arrive. I'm just having a bit of bother making up some brake lines. Has anyone done the ones that go from the Flexi down to the cylinder? I'm struggling to get a tight enough radius in copper to make a clean exit from the union, without getting too close to the shock absorber.

Any pointers appreciated.
