Hi Friends, Please read this issue and comment what you know or experienced or heard about it. Thanks a lot in advance. I was having this idea for a long time which is to convert 4DR5 Drum brakes to Discs but many people advised with many ideas that some says don't do it and some says do so. Actually one of my friend did it on front wheels sometime back and he is saying he has better braking especially when running in the city. ( Better means, sudden stops due to motor bikers and three wheelers in a traffic conditions ) However I think the common issue with these jeeps are is that, the vehicle is pulled to one side when braking hard. ( Especially when we want to stop suddenly when the speed is aroud 70 KMPH or higher) To overcome this issue, I have pasted the drums and serviced the braking system ( From master pump to brake shoes, replacing washers and etc.. ) By doing that we can achieve a good level of braking without pulling to any side for sometime and again that issue comes. Then we have to get a mechanics help to adjust the brakes and this goes on and on. I called several people who said to be experienced of doing such conversions and all of them quoted very different prices. Some says they change the axles with ones with Discs and one person said, he does not change any axles but remove the drum and related parts and modify it with disc to match with Pajero caliper set. For that they say they get the disc Moulded from a place at Moratuwa or somewhere. However I inspected 2 jeeps they have done recently with the one of it is belonging to a friend of mine that I mentioned earlier. Those are seemed to be fine for me but I really don't know technically how successful that is in a long run. Also I am having a free wheel hubs at front and as per they, any of those are not required to change and Discs can be applied without any problem. The amount they quoted for that is 55000 for front two wheels. I am thinking of getting this conversion done may be in a month or two. So please advice any drawbacks you see on this. Also if you have done it before please post your experience. Its really valuable. Thanks again.
