Trail Tough Subaru Rear Disc ?

Who's running Trail Tough's Rear disc conversion setup? What year and Model Subaru calipers does use? I know that they are early(80-82) Sedan, but are they from the 1600 or 1800? Or does it matter?

Thanks,
Wayne

You just need to be sure they are from the front of a Subaru with NON-vented rotors.

Brent,

Does your conversion kit use the Samurai caliper brackets?
I check your website and can not seem to find any product
listing for your rear disc brake conversion kit.

Thanks,
Wayne

Re: Trail Tough Subaru Rear Disc ?

its been quote a few years since I did the Subaru conversion. Samurai ebrake cables didn't work. I used the Suby ones and fabbed up a splitter for the brake handle mount.

You're not using Samurai calipers either. The Subaru caliper has its own ebrake cable attached which means you don't lose your parking brake. We've been carrying the

Spidertrax ones for a couple years, but I'm getting caught up enough these days to finalize the design on our Subaru setup. Once again, best bennie is the ebrake is retained, but its not all just bolton stuff for the DIYer.

Re: Trail Tough Subaru Rear Disc ?

Hi Wayne - and Glenn since you found it appropriate to butt in...

Yes, it uses the Subaru calipers. The splitter for the cable is included. We have made it quite simple. You can find this item #RDB-400 on our web page under Drivetrain, then Axle - it is listed right after our Full Floater Axle Kit. As for YOU, Glenn, I think your conduct on these lists is disgusting as well as in other arenas. I have refrained from 'slapping you around a bit' but if you don't stop posting replies to questions DIRECTLY ADDRESSED TO ME with your sales pitches I am going to come out with some things you are not going to like! So stop it right now and I will continue to bite my tongue.

Re: Trail Tough Subaru Rear Disc ?

LMFAO
Brent-

In case you don't recognize the handle my name is Shawn Chase. I just changed over to cable internet instead of dail up so I think my email may not be working as I tried to email you and tell you how much I loved the job you did, but it kept gettin sent back to me by the postmaster. The 1.6 is running great. I'm not the last one up the hill anymore. I got it maxed out bout 85 coming home on I-5. The radiator seems to be running just right, at least for now. Anyway I wanted to thank you for the excellent job and customer service you did for me. I think the only thing I'm going to add is a pressure reg. for that darn weber. Oh and also I got "that other guy's" sticker off and I'm proud to put your's on. I gave out two of the little one's you gave to other samurai driven buddies of mine. Anyway thanks again and I'll be calling you before to long for that YJ kit.
Thanks abunch
Shawn

Re: Trail Tough Subaru Rear Disc ?

WOW! Didn't realize I was bagging anyone. Just letting the guy know that Samurai ebrake cables aren't used and the system uses the Subaru calipers.

Sorry if my response seemed to be out of line, just didn't look like anyone was answering the question at hand at the time.
