Fitting Commodore Front Brakes To A Manta

E416 PBO

Recommended Posts

I have carried out this conversion to my A series. You can use the Manta A upper ball joints as they will fit the Commodore stub axles. The lowers you will have to change for Commodore/Manta B ball joints which are the same. The steering arms will have to be heated and bent to restore the Ackermann angle.

With the brakes I used the Commodore calipers for a while before changing them for 4 pot Wilwood ones. I had to get an adaptor made to mount them on the stub axles.




Hope this helps,

Don't bother, just use the hubs supplied by TMJ? to go 5x120 and use bmw brake discs and wheels. loads out there and a massive amount of discs available, i have 305 mm on mine and they were about 40 quid each, messing with steering angles is a pain in the arse :blink:



Back from holiday :lol:
