Exclamation I need a complete front knuckle, hub, rotor, and caliper for aftermarket brake system

Hey, anyone out there just total their RS?? I need the complete knuckle, hub, rotor, brake assembly for an aftermarket Willwood 4-pot brake system. Anyone care to donate? Or I can pay you for the assembly? This system will be better and cheaper than Brembo and made in USA! BIG rotors for those factory 16 inch wheels baby!

Let me know. I'm serious about this!

Who's fabbing the hub adapter for the new brakes?

If they're willing to share information, Lechute Subaru in Canada did the Wilwood conversion for ownly... Maybe they would help you since they've made no attempt to sell their finished product.

Of course it will be cheaper than Brembo. Wilwood is cheap and yet performs well. What calipers are you thinking about? SuperliteIIA? Ownly never told me what they used on his car.

I don't know who's fabbing it over here but as soon as I can get the groats together to get some fabrication work done I'm going to Sonny Howard over in the U.K. - SHP racing - U guy's should see his work - talk about eye candy

cheers

Jeff

We ran the Superlites on our car. But we had problems with breaking caliper mounts. I guess the hard abuse from rally took its toll. We ran a 12" rotor. We ended up with AP brakes in the end. The hardest part is to fabricate the hat to fit the rotor allowing clearance for the caliper so it won't touch the rim.

Talking

The aluminum center hub adapters are being designed and built by SMC of Sierra Madre, CA.

Rotors are slotted or plain.

Dave made some for a project impreza he built that were pretty cool too. I think he was using the 4-pot willwoods... or maybe sixers... i dunno they were bigger than your old ones from last year rich... they were really huge, but I remember the hats were the big deal. Like a bigger deal than any other part of it.

the Lachute ones, I dunno they just made a braket for the caliper but they werent using oversized rotors yet i dont think, so they didnt need the hats, or at least they didnt make custom hats

Those were Superlite II A's that I put on Rey Mendez's car, with 11.75" (I think) Coleman rotors. The hats had to be custom made at great expense for the proper offset, etc. Also, nobody makes an off the shelf aluminum rotor hat with a Subie bolt pattern. I think the hats cost something like $150 each, and he got two spares. The rotors only cost $60 or $70 each. The adapter brackets were the easy part. I still have the pattern.
Another inportant part of that conversion was the Tilton dual master cylinder adjustable bias pedal assembly.

Needless to say the car stops >very< well .

Question:

Would factory ABS still work after such a conversion? Or would it need to be eliminated?

The ABS will still work if the pick up wheel is still on the hub but for racing(rally) you disconnect it because its more of an annaoyance than helpful.

Even after installing a new (non-subaru) master cylinder? I wasn't worried about the calipers alone, although upgrading the calipers significantly without changing the mc is pretty stupid.
