Necessary parts for rear drum to disc conversion
Posted 18 April 2007 - 09:40 AM
e-brake cable, backing plate, rotor and caliper
is that to say you can do the swap without exchanging the hubs? if it's just a matter of swapping drums for disc's that sounds much easier than swapping the entire hub like i originally thought was the case?
i was under the impression i'd need the entire hub for the ebrake drum set-up of the discs?

anyone post a picture or FSM diagram, i'm not picturing where these go since i'm used to old generation stuff. i understand it's a separate mechanism and that's about it.
Plus then you need all the parking brake stuff, shoes, springs, etc.

and do i need all the ebrake parts from a disc equipped vehicle or do the ebrake components that are in there now, stay there?
since this is the wifes car i'm trying to minimize down time.

Yes, you need the ebrake parts from the disc equipped vehicle, the springs, cups, hold down pins, pads, etc. The disc brake parking brake is esentially a drum brake inside the disc, completely separate from the caliper and disc pads. Whereas the parking brake on the drum brake just uses the regular drum brake pads for braking and parking function.
That pic I attached in post 4 shows just the e-brake components. Then the rotor goes over that, and the caliper and bracket and disc pads are over that.

if anyone knows whether you have to swap the ebrake cable for sure, let me know. i haven't seen any conclusive evidence here or at nasioc either way. but i have seen people say "you need the ebrake cable".....but i'm wondering why on that as well.
