hey all, i got myself a 320i parts car to do the big front break conversion, i will be taking the rear brake setup to put the drums on.. i was just wondering if there is much more to convert the rears to disc or is it just oem parts..

thanks in advance

there is a whole write up in the FAQ section. Should answer all of your questions.

search for rear disc brake conversion-

there are several kits that use VW calipers.

After that, it gets harder.

Did Lee do something with rears?

Roughfly!

You need the front rotors from VW Mk1-2

I dont remember if they were vented or not.

The rear calipers from Golf, Passat, Jetta with emergency brake built-in.

More or less the hand cable

Brake line and fitting.

AND a custom bracket to center the caliper ( Advark or Ireland )

You also need to downsize the 2002 rear hub to fit the VW rotors.

All the details were in the archives.
