Talking

Thank you for Such Great information, which will be Very Useful!

I Really appreciate that you took your Time to explain all that to me.

My BumbleBeast Subaru already has Rear Disc Brakes, the Front e-Brake was giving too much problems to me,
So I got Rid Permanently from it, as you can see, ~►here.


(So Sorry for the Yellow Text, the Background colour was Dark Grey when I Typed that, you will need to Highlight that text to become Readable)

Also, we have many of these...

This one:

...
...Preludes Here, that opens wider the expectatives of Finding the Right Parts for my Retrofitting.

I Have Read in This ~► Thread, that the Rear Disc brake's Calipers from Nissan 200 SX will work on the Subaru
"L" Series Rear Discs Too... But people wrote on the USMB that the ones from the Nissan 240 SX will be a
Direct Fit.

- What do you Think About that?

- Does anybody here Retrofitted Nissan's Calipers in "L" Series Subarus?

- Which Retrofitting is Better, the Nissan's (240 SX) or the Honda's (Accord / Prelude) Calipers?

Thank you in Advance for any Feedback... I Really Need my BumbleBeast to be Safe to Drive AND Parking,
because my Li'l Country is Extremly mountainous and we Have too Many Uphills / Downhills on Streets \ Roads
where sometimes I Need to Park; as you can see in the Following Picture of the Capital Twin Cities:





I Drive on City and Paved Roads / Highways During Week Days, and offroading on Weekends.

Kind Regards.

We didn't get the 240SX in this country, and the equivalent Silvia was only a low volume 2nd hand import from Japan, so are impossible to find at the wreckers.
Therefore I can't comment on the suitability of the Nissan calipers and is the reason I went with the Honda version when I found out it fitted.

The Nissan calipers to look for are the ones on MR30 Skylines with 4 wheel discs . Some R31 Skylines also use rear cable calipers though these will be locally made rather than Japanese ones .

i looked into some kits, came up the same price as rx disks which i couldnt afford.

The only reason i can see about a rear hand brake is for hand break turns and you want hydro for that.

if you want it to hold your car look for a line locker i think they were called, put hydraulic pressure though the full system

or a disk on the drive shaft, either or
