Sick of those drums? Finally bolt on LC rear discs! w00t!

Alrighty, I finally got my ksport coilvers and thought to my self while im at it I may as well look into rear discs as I was gonna have most of the rear out anyways as I was ripping out the koni's.

Well I did a bit of searching of rotor stud patterns (4x100) and cars with rear disc brakes and came across a range of cars that has a complete bolt on deal for the rear discs

(providing you dont have an adjustable rear sway bar on the inner most hole (stiffest setting) as it sticks out to much and hits the caliper and need to grind a bit of the end off (i will be doing this tomorrow as it is late and dont want to wake the neighbours)

The cars the parts are off are named different between Aus and the USA but im pretty sure you still got them.

So all you will need is the Backing bracket that holds that calipers, Discs, Calipers with fluid lines and hand brake cables. You use stock hubs and bolts. Just remove the drum and bolt the rest up. Ill try and do a bit of a DIY but its pretty straight forward if youve taken a drum and handbrake cables off before.













w00t! sorry about the last to photos was just excited to finally get discs on the back.

Ok well the cars the parts are off are in Australia called Proton Satria GTi and Xli, or Proton Wira (4door sedan type thingy). The GTi has ABS parts atttached easily removed) while the Xli doesnt. I believe the parts can be purchased new from Mitsubishi I got mine from the wreckerss for a total of $200AUD, but im sure with more searching could be found cheaper.

In the USA i believe this car is called a Mitsubishi Mirage, im not sure which version but I know its a 4g and I believe you only got the ABS version (which doesnt matter as the ABS sensor and sensor ring on the hub comes off (you use your own hub anyway or else it will sit too far out and the caliper will not line up)? This is similar if not the same as what a few workshops offer for Mitsubishi mirages but charge $1300AUD

hope this helps some peeps any questions just ask

edit stupid links

Re: Sick of those drums? Finally bolt on LC rear discs! w00t!

Just thought I add that this seems to be a prett common conversion for mitsubishi's and it seems to be similar to what these guys are doing over on mirageforums.net http://67.15.109.176/phpBB2/viewtopi...ighlight=260mm

Some pointers-
1) the Accent bolts holding the drum on are too short to hold the caliper bracket so you need to get your own or get the ones from the donor car the bracket comes off as they are longer

2) Remove screw from front of donor disc and remove hub and switch with your accent hub *perfect fit!*, it is shorter and everything will line up nicely.

3) Hardest part is handbrake cables as you have to remove more (seats and lift carpet up etc.), but is very straight forward.

4) The bracket adapters seem to be hard to find as companies seem to snatch them up and sell for more. From mirage forums the part numbers seem to be-
4G Mirage caliper adaptor brackets (93-95); MB857764, MB857765

5) DBA.com.au have these discs readily available the part number is DBA410 and is a 260mm 10mm thick solid rotor.

6) Re-use Accent hub with hub bolt as Mitsu hub to tall and bolt to small or different thread

7) I think will only fit 14" wheels as I havent tried 13" yet.

8) Could mean Mirage front upgrades may bolt on!?

Re: Sick of those drums? Finally bolt on LC rear discs! w00t!

yeah ill have a go just need to finish this one and save some more monies...

I cant see why it wouldnt work... from what I can tell the mirageproton guys use a redrilled Galant disc (4x114 to 4x100) (276mm) then use the twin piston Galant caliper... the discs on the Galant and Tiburon from what I can see are like the same disc with a bigger diameter so would be a goodeasier upgrade for the tiburoncoupe guys.

looks like the same bracket would fit an excelx3 with 4x114?... and just use tiburon discs and calipers? As the bolt pattern for the bracket that holds the caliper seems to be exactly the same as the excel. Their could be alot of potential for this little bracket from Mitsubishi
