    Default Mk5 Astra calipers same as Vectra 302s?

    My Mk5 Astra had 308mm front brakes on it - the calipers say 302mm on them though.

    What's the chances the calipers are the same?

    Really want to up the anchors on the SRi from the Corsa-class ones it has at the moment. 302mm would be ideal if I only needed discs and pads.

    I guess I'm hoping I can bosh the old Astra calipers on in place of the 285mm calipers using the same brackery, and then add new pads and discs. I doubt that I'd be that lucky though.

    I can get pics tomorrow if needed - I don't fancy venturing into the "shed" this evening in the dark.

    Cant help on calipers, but the disks are different part numbers. The Astra ones are 25mm and the Vec C ones are 28mm.
