    I can get a sweet deal on four piston GTO calipers and disks all round, so im just wondering what mods are needed to be done to fit the calipers and disks to my vnss? I know you can get adapters ect for the vt spec calipers ect but what about GTO spec? Is it the same story for the rear end aswell?

    Cheers

    Have moved up to VE SS
    The fronts should fit with new hoses and hub adapters but the rears won't due to the handbrake being different and i think the way the calipers mount.

    Make sure your wheels will fit over them.

    Fronts all you need is the hub adaptors, the rears speak to Tony (Mr Spares) as he has adaptors to suit a VT rear on a VN.

    I was also told by some1 on another forum that the vt hub adapters wont fit because the vz/vt stud pattern is different. I have a few doupts with this comment. Does anyone know if theres any truth behind this. I have no idea atm.

    Yea i thought so. "Apparently" the stud pattern on the VE's are different. Probly false info to, wouldnt surprise me. Anyway ive ordered the front end package with braided lines so i should receive it in a fortnight. Cheers all for your input.

    Actually I was told this as well. But some1 in the VE section told me its not true. The STUD pattern is the same, but the VE wheels will not fit a pre-VE commy as the centre part of the wheel is too smal to fit over the pre-VE hub...Unless you modify the wheel a bit... But wheels from earlier commodoes will go on a VE

    Also the studs are thicker and the dish of the wheel is much deeper on the VE.
