Hi All
Hoping some of you guys can help me out. I have started to strip my corsa b sport ready for a c20let conversion and would like to fit the 308 discs and calipers off a gsi astra turbo. I already have the five stud conversion as I am running calibra turbo wheels. Will the brake calipers and carriers fit straight onto my hub carrier or will something have to be modified. I know the calibra 288mm fit straight on not sure about the 308's. Saw what looked like a 308 set up on a members red corsa b reg no L464 bpa which was parked on the club stand at PVS but didnt get chance to speak to owner.
Any help would be appreciated
cheers

You can get the 308's from a Vectra to fit, but I'm not sure which carriers you use.

No bud,the astra turbo /zafira are the same and the 308 for a corsa b will be the late 2.6 gsi vectra.
All other vectras will be 288,the carrier to hub bolt spacing is about 70mm on the corsa b,astra mk3,cali/cav and about 90mm on the astra/zafira.
308 will only fit under 16" wheels,just in case!

Can get 308mm brakes off some Saabs too. Much easier to find in scrapyards. Not sure on the exact model though.

The wheel pcd is probably the same but I was told that the two brake caliper to hub carrier mounting holes where wider on the later models similar to the difference between a corsa b and a corsa d
