    just something a little meater really, something like a willwood set up to match my fronts but obviously not as big - something like 308mm maybe??? I need new rears anyhow so its either uprated of standard.

    I asked Steve (LMF) to have a chat with willwood for me and he is going to let me know.

    Pete has an upgraded rear wilwood setup, may be worth asking him about it? (although dont know how well that would mate up with astra rear'ness as not sure how much of his backend is standard.

    The vectra's rear calipers mount differently to the astra's dont they? or do they just bolt straight onto the current mounting plate?
