Don't feel bad man, I do the same thing. I once almost asked the mechanic to change the brake bomb on my BMW when the power steering was leaking - duh! Thankfully I caught myself at the last second before sounding like the biggest amateur ever. Of course I am an amateur...

I was waiting for that to pop up on this thread. I converted mine a couple years ago. Post #25 of this thread: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ead.php?t=3407

Caliper Brackets FTC 3306, from the usual suspects. If you care to upgrade the fronts to vented rotors George at RDS should have the Spacers for the Calipers and the longer bolts, makes what you have into an NAS D90 or 1996 > D110 Caliper.
RRC hubs any non abs that we would normally see. 1983-84 110's might have "wet hubs" in which case they would either need to switch to later stub axles with the oil seals or (this just came to me) use front 110 hubs (pre 1996 ish) the jury is still out on this as I haven't measured.

I have lots of 110 rear stubs..

Big, Red and ... aaa Red..

I just got my 110 back from the shop. I had the three flex lines replaced with braided hoses from Atlantic British (normal length), all the fluid replaced with new and rear shoes adjusted.
Much better braking with minimal pedal travel.
