Will Calipers and rotors from a 10 spline D90 work on a Disco Axle

I have a Disco axle to put in the front of my 90, can I just pull the rotors and calipers off the 10 spline d90 axle and use them on a 1997 Disco axle?

I started thinking about this after I had already pressed the races into the disco hub assembly.

So I want to bolt the older style rotors to the Disco hub assembly and use the old style calipers.

Thoughts?

It may be a difference in years or something, but I am confused by your question. My Defender has CV style half shafts. I have no idea what parts you are trying to change and what you consider axles. A lot of old disco parts are real close to my shop. I could check something for you.

Sorry, I mean the whole deal.
The entire disco axle housing, internals, hubs, everything. The question was whether the 10 spline 90 rotors and calipers can be bolted up to the disco hub assembly?

Of course. Simple remove the hubs on both, unbolt the rotor and bolt it onto the Disco 24 spline hub. Re-install hub to disco axle. Now bolt caliper on and you are done.

Yes you can... My RRC had Disco I rear axle. The D90 is no different.

yes. though you could also use the rotors and calipers from the disco if they are any good. in fact, they should be identical.

when I converted my 90 front axle to 24 spline I used all D1 parts. My 90 calipers were partially siezed so I used the d1 calipers. side by side could not see any difference.

good thing to look after but I thought the metric shift was in the early 80's. Stage One and late SIII are part or all metric and my 84 d90 is all metric.

110 calipers are bigger. Tom assuming you already knew that you have to retain the plumbing up to the caliper if you are using the 110 calipers. Sent you a pm have a shipment on its way with items for you included.

Yes, this is for the 90.

What do I do with the ABS wires on the front disco axle when I put it under the 90?

I cut them off as close as posible to the top of the sensor and then have to dril a hole in the flexline to rigid line bracket to fit over
