Re: rear axle with disc brakes

lol im not going to fit a standard axle, im going to fit a 172 or 182 rear axle to match the front, so it will be the same, and therefore have the right set up. yeah the k-tec conversions is not cheap around 3000 and tbh i have been looking around and i have seen a few 172 and 182 for just the same price maybe a bit more. the look i was hoping for was to change the engine and suspensions, brakes etc to a 172 or 182 set up but have it look like a bog standard clio on the outside, with just a few mods on the car, eg wheels, exhaust, maybe a bit of styling like changing the front grill, adding fog lights that sort of thing. i have not idea what the insurance premiums would be and i havent looked yet, but im not paying much for my clio now.
