  • BRAKES

    ok has anyone done or thought about taking the redline brakes and hubs and putting them on a QC? i wanna do it cuz drums just wont do [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img]

    does anyone have experience with this? would there be fitment problems?

    i plan on getting everything, fronts, rears, lines, brackets, master, lines etc

    1) you would need a set of wheels with that specific bolt patten

    2) there are not all that many Redlines in junkyards, so parts sourcing is going to be costly

    3) lines should be fine (aside from the ebrake cables), same with master, but definitely would need all brackets and backing plates.

    we haven't looked into this much deeper since there are a few companies who were said to offer rear disc conversions in the future, along with how most don't have a spare set of wheels that are that specific bolt pattern.

      you need to wait a couple years
      i think saturn sold more s-series cars on average than theyre doing now
      but wait a couple years and therll probably be a fine assortment to pick thru at junkyards
      and if the current ion owners [especially some of the guys on here] keep doin what theyre doin therll be more after market parts like brake kits real soon

          some of us dont want to have to drop in 1800 bucks.

          pluss some of us dont want to be stuck with 17" rims

          but i agree it is less haslle but the grivana ones look nicer

              I would just keep in mind that you MAY run into master cylinder issues, but I"m really not anticipating it.

              the RSM kit looks nice, but when you have those in the back, and stock rotors in teh front....eh....

                    soursing everything from saturnparts.net the total for a 4 wheel disc swap was

                    Total: $1,404.99 w/o the new wheels

                    and sence the 5-110 bolt pater has a very limited rim selection. my vote still goes to the other kits. more money yes. more flexability yes.

                    pluss they are BiggaR

                      they don't need to be bigger though

                      they just need to be there, period.

                          agreed its pricey and i was shocked as well, but i guess lucky me that i get a good price? bought alot of stuff from the guy, so ya.

                          as for the nbolt selection i agree , but i also have a hard time finding our bolt pattern ... not that many aftermarket 4 luig stuff, i may not be looking hardenouhg, but i dont intend to go beyond my supplier through work, where i can get them at cost....

                          rsm kit looks good though, but as i said whats the point

                          ill let you know how it goes.... might end up being a good option for others
