Evening people's, just wondering if anyone knows of any reasonably cheap brake up grade for the rear end of a VS with IRS?.. I'm already doing the VT front calipers but would like to do something with the rears as well

PBR made some a few years ago but I think they were superseded. Also I don't think the rears were available separately.

I got VE rears on my VR. purchased seperately.
it was mostly just a heap of $$$$$ to make them look similar to the front. and stop a little little bit better.
VT front's (or VE's) get you 90% of what you want.

cheapest solution would be slotted rears with some good quality pads. Maybe put a kit through yr calipers if unsure of their condition. Don't know if it will get you what you want but it's a LOT cheaper than any of the rear brake upgrades I've seen
