gday yall
i have front and rear brake calipers from a vs 215i senator (twin piston corvette ones) im ready to put them on my car but im not sure about the discs. the calipers also came on the vn group a.
im not sure what discs i should be getting because the vs had 328x28mm front discs and 280x20 rears i think and vn group a had 330mm with the same caliper, i think lol
basically my question is will the vs spec 328x28mm and 280x20mm fit with no problems onto my vp v6? i also have a vp v8 master cylinder (1" i would assume) will that fit onto my v6 booster and aid the bigger calipers?

the VR/VSmodels use a different front brake rotor design then the VB-VP commodores. the callipers should fit but you would need to use proper VN GRP A rotors to suit or use VT style conversion hubs to use the VS style rotors. the rears should bolt on but i'm not 100% certain on that

Hoppers do a conversion to the later style hubs that take the slip on rotors. Highly recommended as those VN Group A rotors cost a heap.

They're not that bad... a pair of slotted rotors is $289. There's ALOT worse in the HSV range of rotor than that.
