Hi guys - been traveling like crazy but time to get going again on the 122s. Can you fill me in on brake upgrade options for the front/rear? any bolt on options that will improve my stopping power?<p>Thanks!<br>

Re: Brake upgrade options (gdill2)

Dual circuit brakes? Brake booster? If yes, Girling or other?<p>The original brakes in good condition are very satisfactory for daily driving.<p>If you tow and/or drive on steep downhill grades the rear shoes will heat up and reduce braking effect.<p>Options include a swap to a late-1800 rear end with disc brakes or an early 140 with disc brakes. The deciding factor(s) may be availability and/or diff gear ratios.<p>George Dill

A '70-'73 1800E/ES axle would work. The track is too wide on the 140 axle. Note that the bolt circle is different from the '68, so the old wheels won't fit...
