VP Calais
Ok guys I need to know a good braking setup on the VP calais. Currently im just running stock brakes etc. Im due for brake replacing but im thinking of going abit further and replacing the Rotors, wheel bearings (they need replacing to) and Brake pads. What are good reliable brands for these products?

P.S Dad and I can install em ourselves so wont need to pay for installation or anything.

Thankz

The VT upgrade seems to be the way to go, I'm gonna do it this summer hopefully along with a couple of other things. Only thing you'd really need that isn't included in most kits is a bigger master cylinder.

VT Calipers, Hub adabtors, VT Rotors, Brake hoses that go from VT Calipers to VP Brake lines. Or you can get genuine brake lines and have the fitting added on.
All of the above cost me $510. Which was very cheap for what I got.

try hopper stoppers, they do complete packages except the 1" master cylinder which you can get from repco for the VP V8

Yeah fitted them myself. Got the stuff from a few different places, all at discounted rates. Lines are VT with a VP Fitting on the end which i needed made up. Holden would probly still do most of it, but not the hub adabtors.
