    Astra mk2 stepping out to the right under heavy braking???

    Hi folks i bought an Astra Mk2 Gte Let last week, i took it up some back roads today for a blast and the back end is stepping out to the right under heavy breaking , the previous owner has just put new discs and pads all round and all discs are cleaning up fine which makes me think it aint a sticky caliper, any suggestions????? Any advice would be greatfully appreciated ,

    Thnaks Dave.

    Sounds like brake bias is out and the back end is locking before the front.

    Have a looksee at the brake proportioning valve in the centre of the car (underneath), just in fornt of the back axle

    check the spring is there and it's located correctly.
