if you stick to 45-45mm ofset you wont ahve any arch probelms.

im runing 205-40-172 alloys with an et of 45mm and mines droped 25mm front and 60mm+ rear and have no probelems what so ever.


for the brakes you can use calipers,carriers,pads and discs form any 2.0l cavalier/calibra 1.8 or 2.0l astras mk3 and 2.0l mk2.
and they will be a stright swap for your brakes.

Cheers mate, Am wanting to go down 60mm all round or is this too much at the front ?

So for front AND rear 2.0l brakes all i need is the calipers, carriers, pads, discs ? Whats the deal with the rear? Just remove the drums etc and fit the discs and there is no problem ?

you can go 60mm on the front no problem.

with the rears you need the compleat hub gsi hand brake cables and handbrake cable guide brackets.


to fit them
remove your compleate hand brake cable's
clamp off the brake pipe flexi's
remove the brake pipes from your wheel cylinders
if you look at the back of your drum brakes theres 4 15mm bolts that holed it to the rear beam.


fit the new disck hubs do up the 4 15mm nuts
bent the brake pipe to fit the caliper (make sure the bleed nipples are at the top)
bolt on the handbrake guide bracket to your rear beam fit the new handbrake cable adjust up the calbe and raer shoes.
bleed the rear brakes
and your sorted.
