    Default Rear brake upgrade question.

    I am about to fit 302mm discs and calipers etc to the front of my dti. Am I right in saying that all i need to upgrade the rears is new caliper carriers and discs??

    not necessarily John.

    The front brakes need to be stronger than the rears so you dont need to upgrade the rears

    sorry John my fault misread the thread
    Yes you will need carriers,calipers and discs and obviously pads as well if you are upgrading to larger size
    if you've got 17" wheels why not got to 314mm up front
