i said maybe a wheel spacer behind the rotor, but isn't that unsafe?

Not if there is enough threads to hold the wheel on and the spacer is machined nice and flat so the rotor sits parallel to the hub and doesn't create vibration.

he only needs a few mm tops


why don't we try throwing on a few washers behind the rotor, just to see if that clears everything, then you'll know if you need a spacer or not

According to Brembo plans, the differences in width that may been scraping into to the caliper is about 3 mm that may be gained by the spacer.

When yo full open the caliper and install in the tercel wich side of the caliper is in contac with the pad?

What is needed is the PCD section of the stock rotor to be machined with a half inch thickness. This is placed on the hub and then the Corolla disc goes over this spacer. It has been done with the Levin superstrut brakes and there are pics of this conversion on Rory's site: http://www.hardcore.ep91.com

the part of the caliper that goes right behind the rotor, & bolts to the spindle/bracket

it could prolly be filled down a little....

nice thread daox, i might just try spacing the corolla rotor and if that doesn't work then just use paseo rotors and hope that my brake pads don't fall out.-dunce-

It`s from a Ford Fiesta, but i think it could work. isnt`it?

That could work, but I'd be very careful about what washers your using. I'd definitly recommend a hardened and ground washer versus just a hardware store stamped washer. We're talking about a very critical part of the car here. Definitly not the place to do a hack job on.

How about a steel plate that sits in between the knuckle and the caliper bracket?

How thick do you guys think it would need to be? There's a place around here that has a laser cutter, I know some people that work there and they let them cut/fab personal stuff on their free time.

1/8" enough? or 3/16"?

Never mind, the plate would have to be between the caliper bracket and the caliper. So a one-piece spacer is out. Still leaves room for a two-piece spacer between the caliper and bracket, provided the caliper bracket itself doesn't rub the rotor when installed on the knuckle.

Or if the caliper bracket has enough extra material, the face that bolts to the knuckle could be machined.

I'm pretty interested in doing this and doing it in a fashion that won't get me killed because my calipers snap off...so input is WELCOME.

all you need is:
corolla caliper and bracket
corolla pads
paseo rotor

done.

the bigger paseo rotor gives you more heat and fade resistance, and the larger corolla caliper gives you more clamping force.

do this plus a rear disc conversion, and it should stop like you hit a wall.

also, not in addition to larger diameter, dont forget that the thickness of the rotor is more important than diameter, diameter is only leverage, while thickness is dissipation of heat

just thought id throw that in lol this is a good thread

for an additional upgrade, get drilled or slotted paseo rotors.
