    Rear Disc Conversion

    I have a stage 3 Z20LET in an 04 plate SXI, i wanna do a rear disc conversion on it. Do i need to buy Astra GSi Rear Beams? or is there another way. I would rather go with whats easy and not cost effective unless one is expensive and the other isnt.

    You're running a Z20LET conversion and still using rear drums???

    I heard you can get the rear beam and do it that way or just get the hubs + discs etc, but that getting the rear beam is easier. I haven't done it yet so can't comment

    Yeh i not long got the car, it was going but needed some work. Badly in all honesty. It was a bargain none the less so i didnt mind paying what i did.

    any 5 stud discs/hub/caliper setup will work handbrake cables are less that £20 from local motor spares shops and you can get away with re-shaping your old brake lines but i usually get new ones made
