rite i want to do a rear disc conversion on my 1.4 8v corsa.

the only problem is i have a rear brake bias valve.

what is the best axle to use and which disks are best.and also would i have to put brake pressure regulators in the rear lines when i get rid of my bias valve.

I've heard most people use the rear axle off an astra GTE, however you will need a rear-disc conversion kit and i know some welding will need to be done also. Not easy unless you know exactly what you're doing

From what i've heared the best solution are the rear disks of th golf mk3. They are the right dimensions for the corsa.
The most used alternative is the use of an astra rear beam. somewhere on migweb there is a really good tutorial.
With the astra rear disks i think that will be necessary 3/20 restrictors, for make the rear braking force smaller (too bid disks)

news to me! can anyone confirm this?? surely the offset will be affected more than the astra conversion??
