          i used peugeot rotors (604? can't remember offhand) and landcruiser 4pot calipers on my corona, which should be essentially the same. needs minor bit of metal taken off for clearance, but all that fit under a stock set of rt104 rims.

          ps. steering is its own mod plate (if you are in qld) but nsw i have no idea re engineering.

                Don't worry about cutting the car up. If anyone was collecting these they would have done it already. cut and shut till it fits

                  Just be aware that if it has an AMI (australian motor industries) badge on the front quarter panels, behind the wheel arches, then it is fitted with an australian made 'banjo' diff. As it is 72 there is a good chance it is one of the australian assembled ones. The banjo diff is quite possibly the weakest differential in the known universe - axles, crownwheel, spider gears are all ultra weak.

                  Any of the solid axle rear ends bolt straight up, and the jap rear ends are stronger and have discs as you already know.

                  There isn't any budget lsd for the jap diffs, but the borg warner 78 from the r31 skylines is the right width, has 28 spline axles and can be stuffed with an lsd centre easily.

                  Or just weld the centre up.

                  Front brakes off a ms123 are 255mm ventilated - you just swap the whole stub axle over - and whilst you're at it swap the steering box and whole drag link assembly as the 123 bits will be fresher.

                  Alternatively, swap over a camira or daewoo rack - they will work best with the front end geometry.

                  Pedders do lowered springs for them, and adding a second sway bar to the front and one to the rear make them handle much better.

                  Great project !

                    just imagine if you went down this route Seano - bit of a tidy up, a sensible, modern engine conversion and then some brake upgrades :D

                          Yeah - effectively the same manufacturer. They have the steering arms attached in the centre of the rack which works with the stock suspension and steering geometry.

                          I used a 323 rack which is a conventional unit, but am yet to drive it. It may be ok, but if not ill swap it over.

                              alot of great info, what do think ill have to change for the (r31) borg warner diff to fit because that sounds like the way to go?

                                It's not a bolt in or anything, but it's not that difficult.

                                You need to swap the crown lower control arm mounts onto the bw - just make a basic jig.

                                The crown only has a single upper link, and it is nearly over the centre of the diff. As the bw has a cast centre housing you can't easily weld the crown mount on there.

                                Make up two new upper links and weld New mounts to the diff housing and chassis. ( I have the adjustable upper links left over from mine you can have for $50 if you want)

                                You'll then need a custom tailshaft too obviously.

                                You can leave the axles as 4 stud, or change them to 5 stud to match the front.
