What do I need to upgrade my brakes to 2.0 16v brakes off a Calibra? Just the discs, pads and calipers? Anything else?
Seen one down the scrap yard that I fancy having the brakes off so wanna make sure I get all the parts I need. Presume you just take the old calipers, pads and discs off and put the new ones on and thats it?

Get new braided brake lines on as well while the wheel's off.

Less sponginess, more braking power as the lines don't expand like standard ones...

Vauxhall don't sell brake service kits anymore because idiots fit them incorrectly leading to brake failure. They will only sell you complete caliper sets. You can get the service kits from Autovaux though...
