    Rear Disc Conversion?

    Ive got a 1600twinport CLUB astra H and its got tiny discs on the front and drums on the rear.

    Last few days ive noticed that my braking is getting worse and worse (spongy) so i thought it mite have been discs / pads worn out but on inspection they dont look too bad.

    Anyway is this a common problem with the servo or just dodgy brakes.

    Id like to convert the drums to discs and upgrade the front set up. Im assuming this is possible using sxi / sri bits? and how easy??

    PLUS im a horrible 4 stud so ill need 5 stud bits and wheels?

    you could change them over to 5 stud 308mm set up on the fronts from a 1.9cdti they work well an look good

    same for the rears

    ok im assuming id need backing plates, carriers, calipers, discs and pads?

    oh and a set of 5stud wheels

    anything else? oh plus when i woz looking in a breakers today it looked like the hubs and discs were multi drilled for a 4 or 5 stud wheel, is this the case?

    and as ur advertising vauxhall spares, can u sort me out with the bits, baring wheels and pads / discs?
