110 rear disk brake conversion

Just wondering if anyones converted their drums to disk brakes?
How was the process and if there's a conversion kit available?
Thanks in advance.

Call Rover Down South. ITs probably cheaper to buy an entire new rear axle casing with disks..

I believe Mike Slade converted his drums to disc's for his 145. Give him a shout (mike@tawayama.com).

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the great inputs! My first choice was to replace whole axle form RDS, but I wanted to take my time and look at all options available. So far I've heard everything from RRC and Discovery disks that were retrofitted into the SALS axle. I will contact both Keith and Mike and see what they've done and what they can offer. And thanks for the link Dave, and Glenn I'll email you a link of the pics at EE site. Not quite sure how to post pics here yet, but I'll give her a shot, if not just follow the link.

Al

The kit I purchased from Greg to fit to a 110 came with 6 bolt hubs, so you may need S3 109 24 spline drive caps as well.
