    Hubs stay the same, calipers change. Measure first, your combi could have been upgraded years ago and your brake size label might not match what you have on the car.

    After some interesting disscussions on other saab site we have stated with proofs the vented discs aren't so good.
    they are not really helpful and sometimes are prone to crack in the middle. simple one are enough for doing the job ..
