    If your van is anything like my 04 van the only way to get bigger brakes is to do a 280 or 308mm conversion as your caliper carrier is part of the steering knuckle.

    Do a search on here as a couple of very knowledgable members have posted how too,s and they list the parts you will need, I believe that you would need a minimum of 16" wheels.

    All the best
