Don't the kits use AU 2 disks, not VX disks ?, there's about 20mm more offset with a VX disk , I thought a VX disk should have clear those wheels .
Fitting UPC 287mm Torana stub kit to LX hatch

Looks like the LX hose setup is a bit different to LH. I had a look at the hoppers install and they put the hose behind the stub axle to keep it out of the way.
Also, the LH steering arms are shorter that LX/UC and the tie-rod sits a bit higher. So the caliper sits above the tie-end, so really need to swap the stub axles from left to right.

They seemed OK. I don't remember what length they were though.

The car handles much better with Torana stubs in it.
They make kits for the H series holdens but I don't know of anyone who has fitted this combo to a Torana.

Just digging up this thread..
I notice no one has mentioned anything about the master cylinder? Does the master cylinder need to be changed for these UPC brakes or is the stock LX setup OK? I have put a 287mm set in and have an LX SLR with the bigger booster.. Brakes seem a little spongey at the moment but a proper bleed should fix this. Or do I need a master cylinder change too?
Cheers for any advice.

Master is fine
If you wanted to upgrade it to a 1 1/8" corvette one I wouldn't be offended

I hope the big 330 mm ones are ok, just got a set off upc, pick them up next week, got them cheap off ebay, now just have to sort out rears and master cyl and booster so they all match good
