Fitting GTI rear brakes to a Justy

Post  Hayling mini me on 17/04/11, 12:45 pm

I have had loads of PM's about fitting the GTI rear brakes to a Justy, I have been preparing a complete rear end for my Dad & thought some pictures may be useful to put up on the site.

Rear drums


Remove the drum & brake shoes, using a bearing puller separate the hub, then you will notice 4 bolts that hold the rear of the drum to the Justy hub, take them out.




Attach the GTI Caliper bracket to the hub


Then refit the hub & the GTI brakes.

Hope this is useful, I will add some more pics when I come back from my holiday.

To add to this,
I chose to use different bolts to either the long Gti ones or the short Justy ones. I found the GTi bolts were too long and a thread was damaged as it hit the hub behind the mounting hole and the Justy ones were too short to go through the caliper mount and backing plate to fully engage satisfactorily with the hub. I used high tensile cap head bolts. with a spring/split washer.

Just wondering what brake pipes you used as the justy ones and standard gti ones wont fit. Thanks.

GTi hoses bolted/screwed straight up. had one more mounting boss than Justy but no problem there.
