Yep. I just finished up this upgrade to my truck. The vented discs fit right onto the old hubs perfectly. The caliper mounting holes are in the exact same location too.

Cheers,

Mike

So if I have an 85 110 to do this conversion I will need new D90 calipers, vented rotors, and pads? Is that it? Now what's the advantage to this?

Does anyone know if the Discovery or Range Rover calipers and rotors interchangeable with Defender ? Trying to cross reference . My local brake / clutch guy can get calipers for $90 (but with a core charge of $175 must be an exact core swap not an early 110 for a late 90) and vented rotors for $41.(obviously no core)

Disco and RRC calipers are not the same as Defender. RRCs have two inputs and spacers after 89 or so and discos do not have the spacers for the vented rotors.

WillT had the whole set calipers, rotors pads, etc. for like $4xx for both sides when I was in the market.

Chris,

I got Genuine rotors from Rovers North, and OEM calipers from Atlantic British. More expensive, but it seems like a lot of aftermarket parts arrive in Britpart packaging, which never gives me a good feeling. I replaced the bearings, seals, and some of the bolts as well. Everything's apart anyway. It's a 28 year old truck, and who knows when this stuff was last replaced? Now I know.....

Mike

Sorry for the thread hi-jack, but I have a leaking caliper on my 85 110. Does that mean I need a rebuild kit of a D90 caliper?

There are two different caliper pistons used in the "Defenders" D90 Vin to HA 701009 Front is 41mm x 34mm and the second is 90 -110 from vin Ha 701010 to KA 930455 front which is 46mm x 31mm The more common one is the 41mm x34 mm used in the Defender and Disco 1 and Range Rover Classic my Earlie 110 fronts have the 46mm x34 mm so many of the early trucks have been swapped it is best to take out the calipers and measure the piston with a pair of calipers you can replace the whole shooting match calipers rotors bearings from Rovers North aftermarket "proline" dirt cheep compared to factory rebuild with core charges . The seal kit (if the pistons are not rusted) are STC1278 for the 41x 34 mm and STC1280 for the 46 X 31mm size pistons
