    Default Rear Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes Conversion (Honda City 2000)

    Car under consideration: Honda City 2000
    Object of this thread: To have enough reliable input from experience of members to make a decision to go for conversion if possible, or simply abandom the idea
    Why this idea: Under consideration car already have reliable braking system and i dont have objections over it, if all goes well all this because of contributing some real good to machine
    Current status of searching: On internet last couple of days searching only took this far that idea is implementable and successfully done already from 60's cars to todays car's, but it didnt yield any video for such conversion, All i came up with words like " you need a conversion kit for it"
    Timeline: Approx. two months for brain storming

    I beleive its pretty much to get rolling

    first of all nice to see you here, and for the first step i also want to establish that will a full rear assembly of doner car will serve the purpose or not, ofcourse without altering the machine and its usual implications. so a doner car needed to be figured out. i can check pindi's market for stuff, and if not here i can check swat market too, they too got lot of NCP stuff there.

    sure dont wanna mess up, untill i am 100% sure wont let any spanner near my machine, and i didnt mind it at all, infact it is nice to hear from some senior like you

    @poster. I would advise you not to go for it as the gains are not so significant. Even the new City does not have rear disk breaks.

    <table class="specTable" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="280"><tbody><tr><td rowspan="2" class="SpecSubTtlM">Brake</td> <td class="SpecSubTtlMM leftLine">Front</td> <td class="leftLine">DISK</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="SpecSubTtlMM leftLine">Rear with ABS</td> <td class="leftLine">DRUM</td></tr></tbody></table>
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    AFAIK the conversion would be almost useless and you may end up with a messed up braking system even worse than the stock one.

    As you hit the brake the car tends to push all its weight at the front, so front brakes do all the hard work, rear ones only share some 10-20% brake force. Your stock drum brakes were designed to do this in the best possible way. Installing an aftermarket disc arrangement won't do better than the stock balanced system.
    If you want to get better brakes do get bigger booster, bigger discs and multi piston brake caliper installed in the front. Or you can simply put better tyres for better brakes. You may also install harder suspension for better brakes and handling.

    Still, if all you need is 4 discs, you can get a bolt-on system from European Civic, the original one on which your City is based on. The top model of that Civic even came with B18 engine + LSD gear, 4 wheels disc + antilock + traction control. Everything from that car would just fit easily in your City.

    Best of luck. Cheers

    ok, here we go then, rear wheel has no drive shaft or other stuff to hold on to the wheel assembly, its only suspension, your main shock absorber rod holds the major part of your wheel assembly, in addition to it you will find some rods giving support to hub, on each each end of rod there are rubber bushing, by number of bushing one only want to have idea that either that suspension will go for fit or not

    hopes i've explained it

    No it's not near Laal Kurti...it's like between Saddar and Railway station. While you come from Kamran Market (Kashmir Rd) side towards gawalmandi or station it falls on the left.

    my original plan was to get something from swat, unfortunately guys from swat only know corolla as a car, and that too as estate car, all NCPs. so as a first step fails here that i wont be getting something from swat. secondly above we were talking about malaysian city with 4W Disk brakes, that cant be confirmed, so this thing too goes out of shelf. third and biggest the amount of research required for it is simply not manageable for me with my 6 day office of 9-5 and classes in the evening, so i blame myself for it for now, but got this in my mind, got finances too for it, whenever came something concrete across will swap inshAllah.

    OK..So now the question comes only adding the rotors at the back will do the job or u need to change the booster,lining and other hardware too.

    Theoratically,drum brakes require more force to stop the wheels compared to rotors.Hence more brake pressure,meaning bigger diameter lines,which when used with rotors at the end might end up jamming the rear wheels to early.

    veron goes about 400km/h hence air brakes are justified.on the other hand city rarely goes about 150km/h so i think 'chatri' will be enough..
