rear disk brakes

who has rear disk brakes and how did you do it.
the lil'searchy thingy is not working. i'm already swaping out the rear-end so i have it on the work bench i want to do everything at once then slide it under the zuk.
this is a daily driver 99.99% so would this be a bad thing for the streets


i have most all the stuff to do rear disk breaks.
can i cut the rear drums down to the circle just past the studs.
also what about the t-case e-brake how do i go about that. do i go and get a motor cycle set up. where do i find a cable e-brake. i found in the junk yard that the izuzu tropper had rear disk with cable e-brake. i dont know what the bolt pattern is but i have a complete zuk front-end at my finger tips so the t-case would be better

Re: rear disk brakes

Izusu Trooper would have a 6 lug bolt pattern. If you look at the Sami drums, there is a ridge that is approxiamtely were my drums were cut down. They fit inside the rotor with about 1/8" or so to spare. I using early 80's Suburu calipers so the e brake problem will taken care of with those. I should only have very minor modifications for the parking brake to work.

Re: rear disk brakes

What all did you take from the subbie? I hear you need a few parts to make it work.

Re: rear disk brakes

I bought loaded calipers and the rubber hoses from Parts America. The calipers are from a 1980-82 Suburu 1600. The hoses are too long, I may look for another set that are shorter. I still need to get the banjo bolts that bolt the hoses to the calipers and a proptioning valve. I also have to make up some brackets to hold the caliper once I have everything ready. I can't see it being difficult to make it work.
