I put the larger 110 front calipers on my early 90 and a Classic Range Rover axle complete with discs on the back. That set-up stops things fine, and maintenance is much easier. My 110 has rear drums but rarely gets off raoded and I've used 1 set of shoes in about 90,000 miles

[Do your brakes suck that bad or what!]

My brakes are pretty good all around. On the road most of the braking force is transmitted to the front. So double piston makes sense. Double pistons in the rear I don't think would make much difference on road. But did you ever get that feeling in your gut when you have to back down a steep incline? I have, and I was wondering if double piston calipers would make a difference when in that situation.

I just had my 110 converted last week. HUGE difference. I love how this thing stops now. Granted, I had a leaking cylinder, so I used that as an excuse to change to disc. Even the Wife could tell a difference. Talk to Keith at RoverTracks. He hooked me up with the right parts list and brackets and the guys at Pikes Peak Rovers did the excellent work. Using a combination of used RRC and Disco I parts, it was cheaper than doing the Zeus kit.

I'm pretty sure this was the final list of parts (it morphed somewhat during the conversion). I'll double check, but meanwhile:

Pre-ABS RR Classic hubs (front or rear). '89 or older I think.
Factory OEM Salisbury Disc brake brackets from Rovers North with .100" machined off the caliper mounting surface
Rear calipers from either a Disco I or D90
Rear rotors from a Disco I or D90
Brake pipes from a Disco I

I opted for all used parts except for the the consumables (rotors, etc) and the brackets. Thanks again to Keith at RoverTracks and Eric at Pikes Peak Rovers!

Switching the front of a NAS 110 from solid to vented rotors is a better benefit in my opinion (for braking reasons mentioned in the post). You can install D90 front rotors and calipers as a bolt on. The rears maek life easier, but you won't see too much improvement if you just do the rears (some, but don't expect miracles).

so bottom line, do both front and rear upgrades. Sounds good. thanks all.

Does anybody have part #'s for the RR hubs and salisbury brackets that I can reference? The rest is easy-breezy to find, but dont' want to "F-up" those 2 pieces.

Forgot that Keith mentioned the bolt-on upgrade to the fronts. I figure I'll do that when it's time for pads. Also forgot to put Disco I Dust Shields on the above list.

I'll check my receipt, but I don't think part numbers are on it.

I have a couple of spare sets of RRC non-abs hubs if anyone is in need.

Other than the new Disco I rotors, no part numbers.

What's your thought on the D90 front calipers vs the stock 110 calipers? I will get new vented rotors either way but have a set of front D90 calipers; should I stick with the stock 110 calipers on there or swap the D90 ones?

When you guys are saying vented, you're not referring to cross-drilled, right.

Hmm... and this just bolts straight onto the Salisbury rear axle.
What drive shafts do you use? The Salisbury ones?
And the drive flanges??
This sounds interesting, most of the parts are dead easy to come by over here, except for the brake brackets does anyone have a part number for those?
also found this link
http://forum.landrovernet.com/archiv...p/t-26591.html
and answered my own question I think
2 FTC3306 caliper bracket

I guess my question is does a 110 vented disc exist that is a direct bolt on replacement for the solid version. I'm guessing not since the vented disc is probably wider.

Based on my inspection of a vented disc caliper versus a standard caliper the only difference is a metal spacer between the caliper halves. I dont know if rover sells the spacer, but I've seen them somewhere.
