I have 1 knackered 200vi REAR hub and one that is fine. I was going to replace the hub with one from a ZR160 but I wanted to check they are all the same? I assume its only the caliper size that is different in terms of brakes?

I don't have ABS so this isn't a problem, just wandered if running a 160 hub on one side and a 200vi hub would cause any problems? I would be running the vi calipers on the hubs.

Ta :D

I was going to replacec the whole assembly (everything in that pic) so I can convert the 105 to discs. Does that make sense?

I didn't know you could take the hub apart, I thought it was a sealed unit, interesting.....oh and thanks for the PM :D

Right so lets get this correct...

Your converting a rear 105 axle to take rear disc brakes ?

Yes. I have the calipers and carriers from a 200vi but one of the hubs is f00ked so I'm looking at getting a replacement hub (as I know of a cheap one from a 160) but I wanted to check that they are all the same accross the range (200vi, 25gti, ZR 120/160 etc)

:wizard:
