110 front brakes on a 90

Building my 90 from scratch... I have a disco 1 rear axle and a '84 110 front axle c/w brakes. Will the 110 discs and calipers be overkill for a 90? Should I swop out the 110 parts for disco parts? At the moment I am intending to run a fairly stock vehicle with, maybe, 35" tyres.

Any thoughts gratefully received...

Brakes are a moving target - i.e. there is much variation over the years. NAS 90's (in stock configuration) have vented front discs and solid rear discs, whereas the NAS 110 has solid fronts and drum rears - so technically the 90 "has more brakes" than the 110. I'm a big fan of discs on all four wheels, so I'd at least do that, and I think a vented front/solid rear is easy enough to do with stock parts that you may as well run that setup.

Whether you like DBA slotted/crossdrilled or ceramic stuff all depends on whether or not you want your D to look like a porche. I dont think painting "Brembo" or "Movit" on the sides of the calipers makes it brake any better

The 110 brakes will be fine on the 90, they're what went on post 1990 defenders
I've got en on mine - retrofitted bigger tyres need bigger brakes.

The front disk brakes on my 84 110 are non-vented rotors and such have different calipers. The D90 calipers bolt right on, but are wider (to accommodate the wider rotor) and have different pads.

So personally unless there was a big cost differential I'd try get a combination that allowed you to use pads readily available wherever you live (which I assume would be the newer caliper pad setup and vented rotors which are better anyway).

I'll trade you! Just kidding-no really. I'll be upgrading to vented D90 front discs from my non-vented 110's after my 10 spline axle upgrade that Keith is going to help me out with. You would be downgrading with non-vented 110 discs.

RDS will sell the spacers (approx $70) needed to convert 110 non-vented calipers to be used with vented D-90 rotors, so you can keep the same caliper. Keith "mentioned" he should have some made up for sale....hint, hint, hint.

Thanks for the info, Gents.

Next question, then... I am about to order SS brakelines from the US. These lines were developed for the NAS D90 '97 model I believe. Will there be differences between caliper fittings, assuming I go with the '96 Disco1 rear calipers and '84 110 front calipers? My build-up is LHD so that shouldn't be an issue , at least...

TIA

Mark

Should have added.... I'm not swopping out D90 calipers - The only axles I have available are a '96 Disco 1 or the 110 and one of these will be fitted for the build-up from scratch.

I would run disco front and rear axles. The 110 axle is probably 10 spline and has the funky big hubs you cannot run alloys on without the cap sticking through.

The brake lines will work fine.

Sh*te, I tell that to all the guys over here and then went and forgot about it myself! I have a tidy set of 5 deep dish alloys sitting ready to fit. Back to the drawing board. Just as well I have the spare disco axle...

It's been said before - my memory is about as useful as a cat-flap in a submarine.
