    anyone got pictures of mk3 astra with rear brake discs?

    hi folks

    as title, have been looking at local scrappy for hubs to do a disc brake conversion but noone has any, so am looking at cost for buying brand new parts but not sure how many parts are involved in the rear discs, so some close up pictures of anyone that has had it done would help.

    I have the discs and pads already and think all thats left to complete it is:

    wheel hub-inc bearing
    calliper
    hand brake bracket

    anything else i need?

    cheers

    I got loads but cant post em, can email them though.

    new you will be looking at a £350-£500 bill

    why not just buy a s/hand full beam you can use them from late 16v sri cav, mk2 astra 16v GTE, all mk3 astras with rear discs.

    If you get stuck i got 99% parts for sale.

    thanks for the offer mate, but had been posting requests for a beam or hubs for a few weeks now but noone responded or had any. The only place i could get a whole beam was from vpsc for £150 + £40 postage, so have ordered new hubs with bearings, calipers, wheel bolts, brake shoes & the fitting kit from autovaux which was told should be just under £250

    also need discs/pads
    caliper bolts
    new hub nuts (4per side)

    also possible new brake lines

    also not sure if the disc beam handbrake cable is not different.
