Brake conversion to SA brakes
What do I need to convert? A friend of mine told me nearly all the parts are available regularly in car part shops, except for the brake caliper bracket, part number 996615125. Is that true? My brakes need an upgrade, we've got to many steep mountains here :shock: Wink

Prices kit/caliper bracket only? The calipers aren't the problem, but the brackets... Since they are original VW parts, it would be easier to get the approval from our vehicle department(s) Wink

Re: Brake conversion to SA brakes
Just a Q to the guys, is the 2wd 5-cylinder busses fitted with bigger discs/ calipers upfront than the Syncro? If so, can it be fitted to the Syncro or not?
Thanks
