Brake disc options for a st205 front brake conversion

Postby sleeper » Sun Sep 09, 2018 9:23 am

Anyone know if there is any front disc option for a 185 using 205 front calipers that does not require a spacer in the back of the disc to clear the lower ball joint?

Some use IS300 rotors. . If you consider this route, you'll need new lug holes drilled for 5x100 spacing and use centering rings for where they meet the hubs.

It's not as simple as that, there is more to be done like removing material from the caliper mounting points to a specific thickness that will center the calipers over the rotors.
