Hey guys, a while ago i purchased off ebay the front brake set-up off a VT(Calipers, Std rotors, hub assembly)...
Im just wondering when i do this upgrade on my VS II, can i just unbolt the original Hub set-up and replace it with the VT one? cause that will ellimintate the need for spacers/shim adaptors wont it? or is it not worth is and just buy then along with some new DBA rotors?
Any help apprecitaed
Nick

I hope for your sake they are the same because the hubs are worth $400 each!

i think there the same in the way the mount on the car but must have a slightly larger offset, hence the use of spacers to fit the rotor/calipers onto the earlier VS commodore. i'd suggest going to your local spare parts retailer and compare part no's for both the lower ball joints for the VS/VT as well as the struts. or just pull the one of your car and compare, something to do on a quiet day maybe and let us all know the result
