you totally mis-understood. lol

98+ 626 rear disc brakes are a bolt on upgrade for our car. and our stock ebrake cable fits fine on them. they are a true bolt on upgrade.

Yeah...maybe you mis-understood haha

I was just asking if our stock ebrake cable fit with the 626 rotors etc on. thats it, i realized it was direct bolt on like the 6.

Either way you answered my question!

PS Monoxidechild.....I just realized that this year will mark your 10 year anniversary on the site? Damn.

I have Mazda 6 brake calipers on the rear.

I got handbrake cables custom made. It wasn't cheap, but it works. I would measure it up, but mine also had to go around the 4ws setup so it is longer than what would be necessary on a 2ws mx6.

the stock mazda6 lines would have been perfect for you i bet then. since there slightly too long for the 2WS cars.

and yes. when you swap to the 98+ 626 set up. you need the calipers, rotors, and pad's off that car. then your stock mx6 ebrake cables will still bolt right up.

and i have been on this site for WAY too long. lol.

So I got this setup looking in this thread for my six since my brakes are failing now I'm going to run with this setup front brakes from a mazda6 rears from a 98-02 626 correct? This is for pheene now becarful ordering those rotors off eBay some use cheap metal that warp easily, better to go with a slotted name brand. I bought slotted front and rears a few years back and they aren't great and have warped after 2 yrs with lil over 4000 miles. Now where is the best place to order this stuff.

i am a machinist...and would be happy to cut some brackets if we could get a decent sketch/blueprint of them.

When ordering the equipment for the front, are we looking at the 4cyl motor or 6cyl motor? Every site I've been to has asked and I don't know which to put in. Also, where did the OP order his parts from?

The engine size makes no difference on the brake set ups. Its all done by years. Or model when it comes to the Speed brakes specifically.

Our cars are the exact same way. If you have the 4 cyl or the v6, it had the same front brakes. And the same rear disc's if the 4cyl is so equipped.

I was asking you about sending me a couple of those links you were telling me about that dealt with the millenia steering wheels into the mx6s. I've looked through 20+ search pages and can't find anything.

They bolt right on. Unless your talking about the electronics portion. In which ive never heard of anyone doing a Millenia. But on Mazda626.net those guys are using the mx6 wheel and swapping over.

Does anybody knw if a 2005 B3000 caliper will bolt right up? I was looking at it and it could b a good upgrade for the front if it fits. I just can't find any info on it besides the rotor being bout 11.25" and its a 2 piston caliper.

A Mazda B3000 is nothing more then a re-badged Ford Ranger. Nothing Mazda on it other then the badge really. So no, the brakes are not gonna work.
