    Default Disc brakes on 504 live rear axle

    Since I've got a selection of diffs out of the car at the moment, making one up with the right ratio, has anyone ever fitted disc brakes to the back of a 504 wagon? Is there an easy way to do this?

    I've not done it yet, but I am definately going to investigate it seriously. My car is a 505 Estate.
    I was in discussion with a Peugeot mechanic today about it and he suggested that I should consider grafting the whole of a 505 sedan rear suspension on to the wagon. Crossmember, Diff, axles, brakes etc.
    Now the only operational thing I can think of that may not be good is the negative camber you would get when carying a load.
    I am going to have a look under the Estate tomorrow and then crawl under my 505GTI to see what is possible.
    I may be in a better position to make another post after that.
    Regards
