I have the kit, as well as a couple others.

If you do not want to go through the trouble of sourcing the parts yourself, you can buy everything at once with Nick's kit on GenuineSaab's site under brakes.

I have a little info too, if you decide to call (and fight and argue with a junkyard) this is the info you will need.

The casting number on the rear should be 949. found on 02-04 aero and v6 cars.

Thanks guys. There is a SAAB scrap yard about 20 mins away from my house and because our cars are not too popular here in South Africa, i am hoping to find some calipers quite easily. Are there any major mods to be done, or do the bigger discs and calipers just bolt on?

Everything bolts on.

The only issue is some slight trimming to the dust shield and one of the brackets, I forget which gets flipped/reversed.

You will need to order Nicks custom brake lines, the metal ones wont do the job since now the caliper floats.
