    Brake conversion:- HELP MEE!!

    So i have a 2002 SXi 1.6 16v, i love the car to bits, not really done much in the way of modding, just done some interior touch ups and stuff

    basically on the back it has drums instead of disks, just looking for some advice on changing them over to disks

    what parts do i need and how much are they?

    how much does fitting cost?

    would i need to get the front disks and calipers changed too?

    It seems the only way to do it for a sensible price is to source second hand parts. A trip to your local scrap yard sounds in order!!

    Budget £75-£100 for the rear calipers and carriers, more if you need discs/pads too, then £20-£45 for the new handbrake cable. eBay have these on occasion, and there is a member on here selling a whole rear beam at present with discs on.
