Espace Mk2 Brake upgrade

Hi, I want to upgrade / update the braking system on my 1995 Espace 2.1 TD. I currently have the standard Lucas Girling setup of vented front discs and rear drums which is ok but I do feel it could be a lot better.

Over the few years I have owned the vehicle I have totally overhauled the braking system and all is well with it as indicated by the rolling road test on the mot.

I want to know if anyone knows of a bigger brake setup that will bolt onto my hub carriers maybe off a later espace or a sports model Megane, Laguna clio, etc.........

I also wondered if someone knows of Renault with rear discs that the caliper brackets unbolt with the stub axle. The espace rear stub axles are held on by 4 bolts onto the rear beam.

I would be very greatfull if someone has any parts lying around they could take measurements off like mounting hole centres and piston / disc sizes etc?

Many thanks,

Currently in nudger2802's garage:
1995 Espace RT 2.1 TD & 2002 Ford Focus 2.0 Zetec S
