    Default Rear brake conversion 106XSI

    Hi All


    I have a 106XSI 1.4l '94 that I am currently converting from a road car to a hill climb/tarmac car. The car has a damaged rear swing arm on the drivers side which means I will have to buy a rear beam from a wrecker.

    Since I have to replace the rear suspension I am keen to go to a disc brake rear end if I can get one that is effectively a bolt in swap. Minor fabrication is fine. I guess the 106Rallye may have been disc brake rear, but these are scare and I very much doubt I can get bits from one of these.

    Has anyone done this conversion? or can you suggest some net articles that might point me in the right direction.

    One thing you could do, however it might be outside your budget, is to have the rear suspension fabricated from a light steel alloy like T45 and all the bushings replaced with heim joints. Fabricated uprights mean you can fit any brake package you want.
