Woukd Braking System Help


Recommended Posts

Hi quick question is the braking system the same on the Opel manta A series as it is on the GTE C series, or very simular. Would I be able to make them fit my A series.

Also would the bottom ball joint on the C or B series fit an A too? Thanks

Rear brakes on the pre-facelift B series Manta were manual adjust shoes, later post facelift B's (or the C's as I prefer) were manual adjust shoes behind the drums, was told by someone that the Manual adjust backplates can be converted to Auto adjust, but never really bothered to look into it as whatever I had fitted I just made sure worked as it should.

Would assume therefore that the C rears will not be a straight swap but the B's would be.
