Disco axles on a 110

A couple of Disco Axle questions.

Can I put a disco axle on my 110 and swap the calipers and rotors from the 1983 RHD 110?

And it may be blasphemy! But what about putting a Disco axle on the rear in place of the Salisbury?

For on road drive-ability.

1. Why would you want to use those calipers and rotors? They are basically the same (other than the threads) as a disco I.

2. Sure you can use a rover axle in the rear. You need a new longer rear driveshaft and to redrill the spring plates on the axle to move them over to run the 110 diameter springs.

But the Disco Rover-axle has less gross axle weight rating than the Salisbury rear axle or the P38 rear rover axle used on 110/130's from my '02 onwards
