Rear Disc Brake Swap??

Recommended Posts

I know alot of you have done the rear drum to disk swap on your 4WD subes...but what about a FWD one??What do I want to pull the parts off of? I am tired of Buckys intermittent brake failure ( we almost ate a jeep today) and I feel it has to do with the rears.If he is going to be laid up for awhile I might as well change them out.

TIA!

ditto that. Plus you'd be half-prepped for a 4WD swap! (I didn't know bucky was a 2WD! :eek:;))

 

Or you could put the control arm off of a 4wd one and leave the axel stub sticking out. I would think that 4wd rear disks are a lot more common.

This is another thing I am contiplating..but with over 200K on his motor and the extra weight of the 4WD stuff....and the fact it will slow him down...not that he isnt slow already...but it is still a possibility....and baccauda...where have you been?? :lol: :lol: geesh only been a member here since 2004 and its in my sig...:Flame: :Flame: ;)

Check the XT's at Harry's. ;)

 

Most XT GL's had rear discs. Same exact job as a 4WD disc swap, just make sure your donor is a 2WD.

Need to have the donor be from a 2wd turbo. Everything on the 4WD is the same except the hub and the backing plate are different on the 2WD.
