    You will need Calipers, caliper carriers, brake hoses, discs and pads. I am pretty sure this is all you need for the VXR upgrade assuming you have 5 stud wheels and are doing the front ones only.

    Not really sure but it isnt worth it anyway, standard rear brakes are more than sufficient.

    rears fit yes but not really much difference - depends if u have the gear and can be bothered really

    ive just upgraded fronts to vxr (322mm) but running standard 264mm rears (as opposed to vxr rears which are 278mm)
