Just wondering if anyones converted their drums to disk brakes?
How was the process and if there's a conversion kit available?
Thanks in advance.

Call Rover Down South. ITs probably cheaper to buy an entire new rear axle casing with disks..

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the great inputs! My first choice was to replace whole axle form RDS, but I wanted to take my time and look at all options available. So far I've heard everything from RRC and Discovery disks that were retrofitted into the SALS axle. I will contact both Keith and Mike and see what they've done and what they can offer. And thanks for the link Dave, and Glenn I'll email you a link of the pics at EE site. Not quite sure how to post pics here yet, but I'll give her a shot, if not just follow the link.

The kit I purchased from Greg to fit to a 110 came with 6 bolt hubs, so you may need S3 109 24 spline drive caps as well.
