Putting the front calipers on the rear

Postby underscore » Wed Sep 26, 2012 2:35 pm

Has anyone done this to a 185? Any reasons why it might be a good idea or a bad idea? I'm thinking that the larger caliper might overheat the rotor, but other than that?

I doubt it would be bolt on, but I'm wondering if I should even bother trying to modify my old front calipers to go on the rear.

I wouldn't bother...you could if you wanted, rebuild the rears with new seals and get some good pads (like EBC greenstuff) and maybe rotors/hubs.
