    rears are different i think!!!!

    i bought a seal kit for the rear calipers on my EK9 and the kit was actually stated for a VTi and the piston seals were way too small :secret:

    the EK9's rear calipers are larger than the EK4.

    EK9 - 9CLP14S over a 10.2" rotor

    EK4 - 9CLP13S over a 9.4" rotor

    It is possible to fit/swap 9clp14s on ek4? Are they bolt on? I already know that i will need to buy bigger pads and bigger rotors....
