ive seen the whole rear beam of a 160 for sale on ebay before, included discs and all that you need! didnt sell for loads either, think it was 150 or so. Probably the easiest option

Front discs x 100, no point in upgrading the rears until the fronts can at least stop the car, other than for aesthetics.

Yeh my rear discs are for looks. I hate the sight of my drums through my alloys

Yes, I think they are the same. I need to check which side I need though. Do you know of any for sale mate?
Im getting some parts off a guy in England from a 120. If you tell me what side i'll take it off the car too.

If you have a ZR don't fit a beam from a 200 as they are thinner and won't have has much roll control.

The H Frame is the same on ZR's whether they have discs or drums
