Axle swap 90 and 110 101

2 part Question:

If I put a Disco axle in the front end of my 90, can I use the rotor and calipers from the old 90 Axle? Or should I just keep the Disco calipers and rotors?


2nd part:

Can I use the old 90 axle parts to convert my RHD 110 front axle to LHD?

Many thanks

I put my disco axle under my 90, and just swapped the rotors over and it worked great

Tom,

Your D90 axle should have the same calipers (or similar) as a disco I. Only the later D90s got the wider calipers for vented rotors.

roverguy sells two calipers, two rotors and pads for just over $400.

As far as using the D90 parts to convert the 110 front, the main thing you need to look at it is to make sure the swivel balls have the same number of bolts to the axle case. The early ones have six and the later ones have seven (IIRC I have never looked at an early one and noticed).

Keep in mind that if you are using an axle set up from a disco with ABS the top pin on the swivel ball will have a hole in it for the ABS sensor.
