After converting quite a few MK4 astras to the upgrade of Astra VXR rear brake calipers and discs it was clear that there was a more sensible option for the parts .
With the Astra VXR rear setup getting more and more difficult / expensive to obtain , we set ourselves the challenge of making some custom carrier plates .
These carrier plates are not only designed for you to mount VXR rear calipers on your astra G - much better than that .
They are designed so that you can keep your standard calipers on the rear ( bosch or lucas ) and run the bigger rear discs from the astra VXR .
this enables you to keep the costs of the conversion right down through buying less parts , it is also far more easy to fit as you will not have to bleed the brakes after having to swap the calipers over - in turn this makes these plates a better solution for people wanting to fit these at home with minimum hassle.
This kit compromises of a pair of Pagid Zinc coated discs + 2 steel brake plate adaptors .
The brake plates are water jet cut from 43A steel plate then CNC machined to finish .
Most kits require the use of the Astra VXR rear caliper however this one allows you to retain your standard calipers and still run the VXR 278mm rear disc
Any additional information you should need on these can be easily had by sending us an email - we will do our best to help you out with anything you need .
With less parts to purchase to complete the conversion this has such a big impact on price that it then becomes feasable to upgrade the discs to a more performance item without breaking the bank .
