I forgot about this thread. Having switched to willwood set up I never bothered to try the 16 inch set up I had made. It stands completed and collecting dust in my basement. Not sure If I had put these pics up, but here it is complete.

Like I said in the last post, one side of the kit is finished, everything mounts up and appears to work. But I have no reason to finish it as Im using willwood stuff on my car now. If someone was interested I could finish it up but until then it will stay in the pile of many doomed projects

You're right, i installed it only 1 side as my camera can shadow pics (to get near the same pics)

There are a dozen options, its just a matter of the work you want to do. IS300 rotors redrilled seem to be one of the easier methods. There is also the wrx rotor method, but you do ont get the advantage of the cooling of thicker rotors plus you have to use pads on the spacers. Its all just boils down to what kind of work do you want to do to make rotors work for your setup. There was also a cadillac catera rotor I think the 6th gen guys used.

not to sound completely ignorant here. But, why would it be so hard to simply switch out some portions of the front 205 suspension components in order to completely remove the need to custom work anything? They are nearly identical cars, is the suspension geometry that significantly different that one couldn't simply swap out spindles, or front strut and hub assembly. I mean some portion would seem like it could bolt up and work. Seems a bit excessive... But so does all this custom work... overnight from japan!!

Damn why didn't we think if that before??? :cry: :P

Have you ever looked at 205 front suspension?
It's super-strut. It won't bolt into a 185 and making it fit will be far more more difficult than adapting just the calipers.

Most 205 race cars have actually been converted to macpherson strut (185 style) suspension as it has less parts, and is easier to tune.

What hubs etc do the 205's use? I swear I have raced 204's with the 4 pot brakes so i wonder if a 204 hub would fit 205 brakes and 185 arms??

Those ST204's were probably running the ST205 calipers with ST205 disks that have been machined down in diameter. The caliper mounting points between the SuperStrut and standard strut hubs are just a bit different.
