rear disk conversion

Well another project on the go.
Started with the rear disk set up of an 1990 Daytona.



I was hoping that the spindles would match but no even close. The one on the left is off the van.



You can even see the difference in height. Same thing van on the left.





After thinking about it and trying to figure out how to install, i got this plate machine that will allow the Daytona spindle to be attached and will bring it up the same height of the van's spindle. Also it'll drop the rear 3/4 inches.





Needed to drill some more holes to get the caliper facing top back.

Re: rear disk conversion

Where'd you get those rotors? Is your adapter plate made of aluminum? Is that wise? I imagine you could set it up for just about any amount of drop you want, in the rear, with a custom plate like that.. It's a great idea.
Did you keep the parking brake functional?

Got them on EBay
Can't post a link because it says i need to post 5 posts??????
Search for " DODGE DAYTONA 1990 Brake Rotors PREMIUM D/S Rear "
It's R1 concepts

Before you order ask them if it's the solid type or vented ones. It depends on what rotors you have. I ordered and they sent me the solid ones, i needed the vented ones. Cost me $60 to send them back.

Re: rear disk conversion

Planning on making it work? Not a proper swap if you don't get the parking brake working..
