I havent installed my rear disks yet but I'm using the brake lines from my Nexia. They just screw in I believe.

Might be mistake but am pretty confident they do.

I hope they do :|

the caliper bracket is what you get from me, that's the only bracket neened.

the calipers use two park brakes lines, one to each side.

the ONLY place you should have plexable lines of any kind (in the back) would be from the chassis to the suspension beam. you should have hard lines run from the suspension beam to the caliper. in this case your braided lines will be fine but because of the location of the caliper compared to where the brum silinoid was you will need new hard lines from the suspension to the caliper. these can be bought at any parts store and they should be in stock very cheap.

I'm starting to get the fealing that I should offer a complete kit. I was offering the brackets alone for the lowest price but to save headaches a kit will be the way to go. perhaps I will offer both.

Yeah I'm 99% sure my friend done that and he was using brakes from a v6 Cavalier, the one size up from the GTE disks. 285? or bigger i think. The ones that come with a 5 stud hub.

So for this conversion I also need brake lines? Which part are you referring to. The hard lines around the suspension or from the engine bay back? I’ve never had drums so I’m clueless.

Have any other info on this?

What size does he have in the front?

His fronts [used to be] are 280mm. His rears were the same as mine, not sure what size they are in all honesty. They're the same as the ones from a Lemans with rear disks.

He did use his existing brake lines in the front, aswell as the back. They needed a little bit of adjustment but it worked fine.



I've got my rear disks in now and i wish i hadda took a pic of before i changed them. But i didnt, i'll post a pic of my rear disks if you need it.. :Smt023

I'm trying to work on an updated version of the conversion that uses the OE wheel hub and bearing, I just need someone to help me measure up their track width.
