Brake upgrdes

Just like any advice/comments/ideas on brake upgrdes. Thinking about a
S.A big brake kit at this stage ,but wandering if there were other
alternatives out there. Any input into this topic would be much
appreciated,thanks, Eddie Bergodaz.
I'm not that well versed on the subject but you can find some people
on the internet do home conversions either with audi brakes or one guy
putting syncro front brakes on the rear? Apparently there is a mob in
queensland who will do a conversion but the quality of their work has
been questioned.

The SA brakes may be the 'nicest, cleanest' conversion, the SA rear
drums are the same though except with more metal in the brake drum.
There is kits from fastforward i believe and i have seen kits elsewhere.

I would really like to get some rear disk brakes. If you find out
anything (including contact details for the queensland group) then let
us know. The american syncro yahoo group will have a fair bit of info
if you spend the time searching or post up a new question.

But i really should fix the leaky clutch master cylinder and get a
fridge before i waste $$ on rear disk brakes! Oh and legitimate rear
seatbelts!

PS Do we have a destination for the syncro tour 2008 ??

Do a search on some of the British sites regarding using Audi parts.
Audi has the same stud pattern.

Hello everyone
Rang a friend of mine up north who has a syncro with the Volks Conversions rear disc brakes. He is really happy with them and says that the hand-brake also works well .

He has had them for a couple of years now.

Regards

Bruce

It is Yahoo that is doing the re-sending. 
 
I am working at the computer and can see what is coming in at what time.  It is Yahoo.  Phill's has come through about five times, mine has come through twice so far.
