HELP! 80 Gen 1 Brat to Front vented disk conversion
Posted 11 October 2010 - 07:47 PM
I am making Franken brakes for the front of my newly lifted 80 brat.
Using GEN 1 Knuckle - Gen 2 Rotor, Gen 2 Caliper and Gen 2 dust metal thing...
OK DUMB question... In the Gen 2 calipers I received from subaru Heaven, There are very small metal bushings that were on the INNER Pad Tabs, WIth these small metal pieces, the new pad would not fit in the tab grooves, with out the small metal pieces the pad fit perfectly...
So I guess these little pieces are NOT needed??????? See my pics below...
Ok, also is there any other problem with using the Gen 1 Knuckle with the Gen 2 rotor and caliper???? I cant see any other problems except for minor brake line work and such... And I allready have new Gen 1 Ball Joints...
Thanks for the help...

FRONT GEN 1 HUBS + Gen 2 Caliper, Gen 2 Disks and Gen 2 hoses work great on the Gen 1...
Feels much better.
