    Astra VXR rear brakes

    Im pretty sure astra vxr rear brakes are larger than the mk4 rear brakes.

    Can anyone confirm this?


    Also, what would be needed for the swap, just mounting brackets, pads & discs, or are the calipers totally different?

    Failing that, how hard would it be to fit vectra vxr rears, a tasty 292mm vented disc on the back

    14mm = 7 mm all round extra on the rears. vxr fronts are 322 over the standard 308's - the extra 14mm on the front end is very very noticable so id expect the back to be just as noticable with the extra area given on the vxr setup
