TS rear drum to disc conversion
Posted 20 February 2004 - 07:10 PM
I know its possible to swap some parts to put discs on an 03 TS. What I need to know is...
Anybody have first, second, or even third hand experience with this swap?
Complete parts list. What all is needed, what models of donor cars are suitable, etc.
I have looked over at NASIOC but for some reason, I can't search the forums there, nor can I post:(
(USMB is so much cooler anyway)
any other ideas hair brain or not will be read

Not sure why a search on Nasioc didn't work for you, but here's some links I found, searching in the Brakes under "drum disc":
Not your year of car, but good info nonetheless:
Hope these help.
FWIW I have done a few writeups on TS mods myself, including speakers, fog lights, and map lights. Let me know if you are interested in any of that.

I had 4-wheel disc on my '91 Legacy Turbo, but I can't remember if they came that way or if I did it - for maintenence's and safety's sake, discs are far superior to drums. You'll be glad that you did the swap (just try to get your brake bias a little toward the front or you may have a fishtailer on hard stops)

BTW the new Justy in Europe has the same setup.

yes, it does suck that they put drumms on these cars. That's why I want to do the swap.
thanks for searching for me on the NASIOC
It seems like my account has been deactivated or something

Actually, the brakes are not bad on my TS.
I'm just thinking ahead. As I work to make the car faster, it seems I should also start to worry about braking faster. I'd love to be able to use bigger front discs and some more performance minded pads etc.
