Rear Disc Conversion...Spline Pattern?
Posted 14 August 2003 - 11:35 AM
I have an '84 Wagon 4WD, and I am considering the rear disc brake conversion. When I replace front axles, I always have a heck of a time finding an exact match for the splines/spacing of stub axle in the bearings and hub/rotor. My question is.....
...What are the odds that my rear axle stubs ('84) will align properly with the rear disc hubs/rotors from a later model? I know a lot of you have done this conversion, and I have never heard of anyone having to return their hubs or replace their rear axles to get proper alignment.

as far as lookin' around, the 2wd and 4wd rear disc calipers are the same. the splines on the hub will fit ea81 and ea82. the rotors between 2wd and 4wd are the same, but its the hub thats different.
my parts came from a 4wd, but i used 2wd rotors that were in better shape. the hub will unbolt from the rotors, so therefore they are swappable, 4wd hubs on 2wd rotors. everything bolts up as long as you have all the parts

and an ea82 rear trailing arm will fit on an 84 wagon with slight mod.
first grind down the sleeve in the bushing to let it fit in the mounting bracket on the suspension tube. dremel out the holes and use the bolt from the ea82. then on the flat side piece with the 3 bolts, cut a notch for the brake line.
if you want to know how it does, then just ask the trashwagon!
