Alfetta rear caliper spacers and vented discs
« on: August 30, 2021, 01:52:17 PM »
I am about to order a rear caliper spacer kit as well as vented rear discs for my GTV6.  Just checking here to see if anyone has locally before I order.  Rowan 0411596437

Hi Rowan,

I just did the same from Richard Melvin. Order arrived in about a week. Alternatives I looked into were mostly out of stock e.g. Centreline, could not provide timing for new stock e.g. Victor Parts or very costly e.g. Ricambi Tuning. A big thumbs up for Richard Melvin!

You can have them made if you know someone with the right equipment, ie. an engineer or a metal shop.  Then just order longer bolts to suit.

This is often far cheaper than the Alfa-specific options.

The Ford Courier front disc with an adapter plate works well as a disc option.

Thanks - I will just order them rather than getting made.

The kits from Alfa parts vendors also include new "O" rings, longer pad locating pins and new pressure clips.
