This will be my next year upgrade !!!
after seeing lots of big front brake conversions
and doing a 325mm one myself
the rear brakes always looked silly
i remembered seeing i think on here a set of rear calipers adapters
so after much headache lol as i couln't find post
have ended up with this
280mm vented rear disc 4 x 100 or 5 x 100 (5 x 100) shown
audi calipers and carriers
had hubs machined so they are 4 x 100 and 5 x 100
cnc'ed brake adapter
also had a set discs changed
so have one set of 4 x 100 discs and one set of 5 x 100 discs
not sure what wheels im going to run
just waiting for 10.9 grade bolts to tighten it all up

Thanks for keeping this option available. My machinist and I are simply too busy to keep these available.
I have two badass sets of R32 rear calipers if anyone is in need.
Ceramic coated bodies (red)
Teflon coated bores
Ceramic coated pistons
Urethane coated e brake brackets.
hi had few people ask on shipping price
i have a limited amount
124.00 USD shipped by DHL
99.42 EUROS shipped by FEDEX
i am not trade just made a few set to cover cost of R&D and Materials
these are a direct fit on to the passat syncro trailing arms
they seem to have a more machine flat edge
will post a pic tomorrow
the golf syncro (which came with drums)
most trailing arms i have taken apart to use need a small amount of work to fit as
most of the area these fit to is rusty with age no a big job at all
will post a pic tomorrow
the pictures above are golf syncro arms which had drums so they do fit
hi all here a few pics to see the golf mk2/rallye vs the mk3 golf/passat arms
the mk2 golf arms all that i have seem to be the 68.4mm rear wheel bearings
as below and need small amount of work to get the adapters to fit nice
edge needs small amount of grinding depending on how rusty the edge is
some i have had fit without work
and with adapter fitted
the arms with the cutouts all seem to be 68.4mm
the passat g60/vr6 syncro and mk3 golf vr6/tdi syncro
all have soild bearing carriers (no cutouts) and use the more common 72mm wheel bearing
also have a lot nicer edge to accept the brake adapter
and adapter fitted
well, not to f|_|ck up this thread, but, if i want to go with 256x20mm rear brakes on my scynro, all i need is calipers and carriers (and ofcourse pads and discs) along with a new back brakehose?
currently having the stock 239x10mm rear on my Golf
hi all been real busy im building a 7mtr by 7mtr workshop at back of my house as i have out grown old one
i have sorted this thread so if people post now i will emailed and be able to reply asap
to answer questions etc
these brackets are to use on the syncro family of trailing arms
eg: mk2 golf syncro
mk2 golf rallye
mk3 passat syncro
mk3 golf syncro
as to upgrading a syncro to 256mm discs (rear) i have not looked at this as i just went from drums to 239mm to 280mm rear discs
but i doubt the 256mm carriers would fit ?
i have changed a syncro from drums to 239mm x 10mm rear discs using the std vw rear rallye OEM parts
this lead me to fitting the 280mm discs as 239mm just looked stupid in my wheels compared to the front discs im running .
as to question about will adapter will fit all VAG mk4 chassis? i.e. Seat Leon Tdi or Golf Tdi
i dont understand question do you want to fit 280mm rear discs on say a mk4 golf ?
cheers speak soon
rear brake upgrades are generally a waste of money/time, once you go beyond vented rotors and lightweight calipers. i'm installing a manual bias adjuster on my car, as stock mk4 calipers are giving too much rear bias, and i need to dial it down (rear end coming loose when breaking from 200 km/h is not fun)
Has anyone found a 4x100 rotor that would work with this setup? My calipers are shot, and I need new pads/rotors anyways, figured I'd upgrade somehow.. but like some other guys said, I'm not looking for major braking in the rear, mainly looking for stuff that will be easier to get parts for later on (I'm in Alaska, and shipping is a lot of $$).
I have a 280mm x 22 mm vented brake setup on my corrado but now I cant find replacement rotors.
I've been running this setup for years using mkIV calipers, new hub etc. But cant seem to find anyone running a simmilar setup or replacement parts.
I just got 19inch wheels on my 2001 Audi 225hp TT Quattro and the 256x20mm rear rotors look minuscule.
Will these adapters allow me to bolt up 280mm rotors from early VR6's fronts just for looks?
What exact car year and models are the 280mm fronts from?
What backing plates will work?
Are these still available?
Finally got them on
Used ECS's SS coated brake lines. Wheels were hitting though (16x7 et20)
luckily, was able to get ahold of some 5lug adapters right away, so improvised to get it rolling... waiting for the real spacers currently (had to go out .5" and it was still barely scraping the barrel).
FS: 1998 F150 SuperCab 4x4 4.6L V8
WTT/FS: 17x7 Team Dynamic Racing ProRace 1 wheels
(search my name)
I bought a set and thought it could be done better and then I thought about 4 lugs and chamber adjustments. Firstly only for my cars, but my cnc men say: one is none-lets make ten-and thats what we did:http://wp.me/pPqN9-1z
I took such a big pic because then you can see the quality of the work...;-)
