    Default caliper piston size

    just a quick one , i appreciate that cars have different size discs ie 314mm or 285mm , but what i need to know is are the pistons in the calipers a uniform size

    iask this as i have a caliper that need a new piston seal and the only kit i can find is on ebay and it lists all types of vectras and signums

    i'd say that that kit the 728 is for those models listed, other kit numbers would fit other cars

    well tbh i'd say if your car is on the list then it will fit it.. whats the problem? it doesnt say

    " will fit all vectras except the ones with larger pistons "

    does it?.

    unless you have changed your calipers for aftermarket upgrades just get the kit thats for your car, if it was obvious that the kit is for the models listed why say
    the only kit i can find is on ebay and it lists all types of vectras and signums
