    308mm brakes

    i was looking at 308mm break up grade kits on LMF and i might be a bit thick but can someone explain to me why the 4stud ones are over £300 dearer than the 5stud ones. The only difference i can see is you get knuckles with the 4stud but what are knuckles and why do you need to change them with the 4stud kit and not the 5stud kit

    I was also looking at these kits, and wondered about the price difference. Fortunately the coupe's are 5 stud tho!

    because the 5 stud ones are more common as they come standard on 5 stud GSI's etc were as 4 stud ones need made up.

    If you read the advert again, you will notice the 4 stud kit comes with calipers and the 5 stud kit doesn't.

    This is because the calipers on the 5 stud astra's just need the bracket to house the 308mm brakes, where as the calipers on the 4 stud would not be any use, therefore the calipers used on 5 stud astra are supplied.
