    Question does the 1.8 astra come 4 stud and abs

    hi there i have be doing some research on upgrading my brakes from 4 stud 256 to some thing bigger possibly 308's.but, i am putting an f23 into a car that has no abs a mk4 astra which has a c25xe fitted. i was told that astra 1.8 setup might work. i would like to stay 4 stud cuz of my alloys.

    does the astra 1.8 come 4 stud and abs, alot of threads in this forum are saying
    4 stud no abs
    5 stud abs

    any one got a pic of the 4 stud abs hub etc and what way is the abs signal taken, is it notches on the shaft or what.

    The 1.8 does not come with abs on 4 studs, there is another vauxhall car that does come with this setup i think but I am not sure which one it is or if it even fits.

    this old chestnut


    Early 4 MK4's studs didn't come with ABS as standard, but there were some fitted with ABS as an option... and all later models came with ABS regardless of stud number

    Some of the Astra Cabrio's also had 1.6 16v engines and were 4-stud with ABS, you need to look for ones that have discs all round. All police spec Astra's had ABS also too

    I wasn't aware that the 1.8's came in 4-stud, only 1.6's but could be wrong as the early Astra Sports may have had 4-stud 1.8 16v's

    As mentions in your reply on the previous thread, you can buy 4-stud ABS hubs and then do either the 308 or 280mm brake conversion. All you do is sourec the require dparts for the convesion and then bolt on the 4-stud hub required.

    My 1.6 elegance has 4 Stud and ABS (for the time being) and rear drums

    1.8 CDXs all had ABS and were 5 stud.

    1.8 SXIs could have ABS and 5 stud or no ABS and 4 stud.

    The Meriva 1.3CDTI had 4 Stud 280mm discs, so may be your best option for standard parts.

    SET, DISC, 280 X 25 MM, FRONT BRAKE, VENTILATED Y13DT, Z13DT, Z13DTJ 93175376 5 69 006 1

    Then you just need a set of 280mm calipers from a 5 stud MK4.

    The ABS on MK4 are sealed units front and rear you just get a socket to plug into.

    Have you got the ABS ECU under the fuse box?

    does the ABS lamp light?

    Arrow

    ok so does the abs sensor also do the speedo on the front left hub. because this is the only hub then i will need that needs to have abs all i want is a speedo signal for my f23.
    • then z20let caliper carriers of a turbo astra petrol to do 308mm
    • z20let calipers
    • and a pair of hub carriers of the astra 1.8
    • new pads
    • 308mm discs drilled to 4stud
    does this sound right to any one or do i still have it wrong
