Do you still have the 5/8" set available? Will they cause clearance issues with stock wheels and tires and stock suspension?

5/8" set available and ready for shipment. You shouldn't have any clearance issues with stock wheels as far as the fender goes. However, these will only fit 15" and up wheels, and do not fit the donut, so you will want to pick up a full size spare or a donut from a newer VW (I believe they have ones that are 15" or even 16" for the bug).

So in other words if you have the base 14" wheels, the brake swap won't fit?

^^ Correct. The bolt from the brakeline going into the caliper will hit the rim.

Well @!#$ on a stick. That means I'm going to be needing new rear wheels. Having a slightly bigger overall diameter with the rear compared to the front won't cause any issues right?

Pick your desired thickness, and send payment to me at sbeau1@metrocast.net
In the instruction field, put what thickness, and if you'd like the ebrake bracket or not (if you get calipers from a salvage yard, you may not need them, and some "loaded" calipers at parts stores will have them, some won't)

If you want the stainless brakelines, contact DSMskyline (he posted in this thread a few pages back, and his contact info is in his profile)

I have some kits ready to go in 3/8" thickness, 5/8" thickness, and 3/4" thickness.

You will need Neon rotors (SRT4 or base) and late 90's S-series Saturn calipers to go with my kit.

Pricing:

5/8" thickness $150 plus shipping
3/8" thickness $170 plus shipping
3/4" thickness $170 plus shipping
e-brake brackets. ($20 with kit, $25 shipped in US, $40 shipped to Canada)

shipping for the kits is $12 US, $20 Canada

The emails were just telling you that I got the payment and I would be sending the parts out Satruday morning.

I wish I knew you wanted the mounts, too. I could have saved shipping on everything, as it all would have fit in a medium flat rate box.

It may end up being like 30-40 just for shipping for the mounts, because they won't fit in the small flat rate box.

OK people, I hate to do this, but the cost of these is going up just a bit. My hardware cost just jumped significantly since the last order, and they're nickel & diming me with freight charges on top of the price increases. I'm checking out other vendors, but for now, this is how things look:

I have a few each of 3/8" and 5/8" thickness in stock, with hardware on the way. Plenty of e-brake brackets available.

New pricing:

5/8" thickness $160 plus shipping
3/8" thickness $180 plus shipping
e-brake brackets. ($20 with kit, $25 shipped in US, $40 shipped to Canada)

shipping for the kits is $12 US, $20 Canada

Payments can me sent so me at: sbeau1 (at) metrocast (dot) net
Put your JBO screen name and what you're ordering in the instruction field.

Will the Neon/Saturn set up fit under stock 15 inch steel wheels?


I miss my Cavalier, even if it made 100 hp on a cold day and had more suspension then it deserved.

I am not 100% sure, but I know that it won't clear 14's.

Unfortunately, I no longer have an axle or 15" J-body wheels to check it.

I'll have to stop being lazy and do some research on my own then.

Once I get a word one way or another I'd order the brackets, stupid winter wheels having to fit.

I had a few guys on the j-body Facebook group say the 15s work but not the 14s. Is what I remember being right.

Isn't the biggest deal if they don't I'd be collecting parts to do this swap next spring. But, It's nice to know I'll not need new winter wheels next season.

Just to be sure, did the guys on the Facebook group have the Saturn swap with the redrilled rotors, or this swap with the Neon rotors? It's an important piece of info because the Neon rotors are a little larger diameter, so what clears one will not necessarily clear the other.

A few guys came forward, some did not understand my question and had the other swaps, Full neon and 'full' Saturn. But out of that a couple did have the Saturn/neon swap and said they should fit. Worst case scenario I don't plan on doing the swap until next spring so the clearance issue will not matter until about year from now. By then I'd be a bit more willing to get 16 inch winter wheels and tires if needed.
