hi guys,

im in the process of spending a bit of money on my vitara and am just about to fit 2"body lift and 3" suspension lift.  

im guessing that i will have to drop the diff and extend gear stick, camber etc which i can do easy but when it comes to brakes i get all scared and stay away.

ive done most things with cars but never anything with brakes except for changing pads, discs etc.

Anyways simple question,  what exacty do i need to do if i need to extend my brakes? where can i get parts etc from? is it front and back? how easy it it?

ive seen loads of help with lifting and they always refer to extending brakes but never how.

thanks guys
