    Vectra VXR Brakes on an Astra G

    Hi all, since having a rear brake problem casued by a sized caliper on the passenger rear, I have been looking at upgrading the system all round.

    My first port of call is the fronts, now if I have done my home work right. it looks like the Vectra VXR fronts is a straight forward upgrade.

    Assuming I have the calipers, carriers, discs and pads. (I also have Astra VXR front stainless brakelines already)

    Now the rears im not sure about, I have already upgraded my rears to the Astra VXR set up, which is basicly the bigger discs with a VXR hub carrier.
    Does anyone know if to fit the Vectra VXR rears, its just a case of buying the calipers with the maching carriers, discs and pads?

    Or will I have to get some sort of modified hub carrier?

    Cheers in advance, I am currently having some of the Astra VXR hub carriers made by an engineering company as they are quite exspensive from Vauxhall, so if anyones interested then drop me a mail.

    Im surprised no one has come across this yet.

    Its a real head scratcher?

    This might even be a question for the VXR guys?

    The long term plan is to sort the brakes, wheels and suspension first then start on the engine.

    Previous cars I gone the other way.
