From what ive being told, youll never get the rear conversion to sit parallel. Plus apart from cosmetics, you dont need them

He ay see some benefit as he does have a LET. Even though they do not do a lot of work they do feel more nicer and stable from what i've heard. Although as you said if they are not alligned properly you will get crabbing

Well maybe, why u say too big? Can you have too much stopping poweR? Its definately not enough now, there have been a few hairy times

Rather than try and flog my discs surely whack em on the rear? Alltho thinkin about it will the astra calipers fit

why do you want big fuck off disks on the rear, they only do 10% of the braking

unless you shinee and what the best of the best for no apprent reason than to have the best all round vauxhall about there is no need for rear brakes like those

upgrade the fronts, a standard astra rear setup will be more the capable, as they do very little compared to the front

My point was tho JR i allready have the disks. They are on the front, i want to replace them with 308mm discs.

So i could sell them for nout or put em on the rear? I know they dont do much of the breaking but they would surely look fappin cool and as i have allready paid for them it makes sense to me

Will they benefit me THAT much tho?

I have heard you can get brembo fiat coupe calipers to fit if you have a bracket made???? they are alot cheaper than brakes for the like of 1k. I would spend that if i thought the difference would be that good.
