I'm aware there has been a few of these topics, and that one dude made a welded caliper bracket conversion etc (unfortunately welded caliper bracket is not legal in Australia).
So with that aside, here are my questions;
- I'm led to believe the front brakes on a 411 SS/SSS and a sp311 roadster are the same? Is this correct? If yes, does that mean the spindles are the same on those models?
- If the spindles are the same between the models above, looking at pictures on the internet, the hubs appear to be different to the 411 non SSS hubs (bear with me). Anyone know if it's just the hub that is different? Meaning I could purchase some SP311 hubs & front caliper/bracket/rotors and win at life?
- Who has done any conversion in the brakes department for a 411? Interested to chat to you.
I would be happy to run drums all round from factory, but the fact is my brakes haven't been used in 20 years, and it's looking like $1k in parts to replace shoes, wheel cylinders, single piston master cylinder etc.
Sp311 gear would be a quick easy win, otherwise I'll have to start looking at hub replacements & caliper brackets OR a complete spindle replacement from a nissan hardbody or something, which introduces other issues like steering compatibility & stud pattern etc etc.
/End rant & questions.
