    Exclamation rear hub to disk conversion?

    rear hub to disk conversion?

    Astra mk4 sxi 1.6 16v

    rear hubs to disks?

    seen a few rear axles with disks, calipers, bearings ect for sale off sri's and gsi's, and was wondering if it is as simple as taking the old one off and putting the new one on bleeding the brakes ect? also what would this do to my insurance?, increase it, decrease it, stay the same?
    thanks

    I wouldn't think it would affect your insurance

    Its a simple enuf job if you know your way around

    I'm gonna replace my set up to vxr rating soon Astra turbo coupe

    on completion its adviable to get all tracking done and lined up tho

    You might also consider

    s/s brake lines as well

    No problem, I originally thaught you were converting all round from four stud to five stud,
    Which you might well look into

    But with a rear hub to disc Tracking won't be required
