    brake calipers(5stud setup mk3 astra)

    just got me a 5 stud setup,for my mk3 astra sport.
    ive got everything apart from-
    front calipers+discs/pads
    rear calipers+pads

    what i want to know is,what calipers/discs+pads to use up front???
    and also what to use at the rear???

    of course i will need a disc rear beam off a mk3 astra gsi or 2.0 sport,to do the conversion,but im just stuck on wich calipers to use all round ??

    could i use standard astra gsi/sport calipers at the rear?
    would v6 vectra calipers fit up front?

    any help would be great,as i want to make sure i get the correct parts before i do the conversion


    any help would be superb

    You dont have to use the whole rear beam, hubs will do, its only 4 bolts per side. the rear calipers can be off mk3 cav or mk3 astra or calibra, but you cant use calibra rear hubs, they have to be off cav mk3/astra mk3. front calipers can be off mk3 cav and calibra, and im sure veccy ones fit too.

    You can also use Vectra rear hubs as well with a little messing around with the handbrake
