Managed to find a set of VXR brakes on E-Bay for a decent price. After selling my Brembos I was finding the braking a little less than I was used too even with Tarox discs. So I thought I'd upgrade all the brakes to the VXRs which I'm thinking may help.
The brakes were advertised as just the discs, calipers and pads, the hoses had been cut ( I wish scrapyards wouldn't do that as it's just lazy and you need the front hoses off the VXR due to the banjo bolt being much bigger ) Anyway I managed to convince the seller to supply the rear steel brackets off the VXR as well as I was convinced they were bigger than the Astra Gs and how right I was.
Here's a quick pic to show just how much more robust the VXR bracket is compared to the Astra G
Not only is it taller but it's substantially thicker and broader too.
I've now got 3 front calipers and 4 rear calipers so if anyone would like to buy a set of VXR rear calipers and a single front caliper they are for sale. No discs I'm afraid unless I decide to buy new ones instead of fitting the ones I picked up today.
Oh and just recieved a set of stainless braided hoses from Courteneys today, full set all 6 hoses to fit the VXR. Funny thing was the kit was missing the banjo bolts and it's advertised as including them, they are looking into it for me.
