    VXR Rear brakes on a mk4

    I've spent most of this afternoon stripping out my rear beam, brakes, etc etc. There's going to be a bit of work done and a few changes, one being VXR Rear brakes.

    My question is, the only difference in the hardware is the mounting brackets - but on the mk4 ones I have removed the backing plate, hub, and mouting bracket appear to be one unit. Do I need to replace the hubs too?

    And before you all say, i know i need new hoses and discs etc.

    Cheers

    292mm rear vented kit from courts,everything you need for £745.00.. 278mm vxr kit from courts also with everything needed for £655.00..

    looking at courts site i'd say no to the hubs.

    £655?! Where the **** do they get their prices??

    Do you know if mk4 hubs come apart from the backing plate and mouting bracket?

    It looks as though the plate is spot welded onto the bracket, but i didn't wanna tw@ the hub with a hide mallet until i knew one way or another

    Dave the hubs are indeed seperate from the backing plate, they just have a habit of rusting on.

    So if I cake them in plusgas and beat the shit out them, they will eventually free up?

    Also can you run without a backing plate?

    Yeah they'll come off eventually and yes toss the backing plates in the scrap pile.
