    the left side are std elan the rights are dorkman made in the usa
    main differance is the sliders steel on the left ali on the right.
    however they are not what i am planning to get on my car.
    i found this picture on another site.
    i fancy fitting bigger discs than std and other calipers i will have a goodold measure of the rear mountings ect later in the week.
    but the elan runs a compleet rear hub combo like the golf gti and not a disc/hub combo..
