VS V8 Front brake caliper onto Early commodore

hi all. Thinking of using the front brakes off a vs v8 ute.
Heard they are the same as vl turbo.

For the caliper to go onto a early commodore, do i have to keep anything other then the caliper/disc of the vs?
The mrs is onto me about tidying the place up.
i wont to get rid of the struts, are the hubs usable in the conversion?

The calipers will bolt up, not sure if VS discs are the same as VN-VP as thats what you need, you might need a better brake booster.
Yes it is the same brake as VLT.

thanks for the reply. I ended up throwing the rotors out with the struts as they were old & worn. I grabed the booster off the doner car aswell

i think calipers, brackets, discs and maybe backings.

brake hoses too?

the std vl turbo uses a 1" master boster so you'd need that (assuming you have rear disc) to be legal.

theres a tech thread on VS / VT booster upgrades.
