I was trying to find the post for those 3 bolt caliper adapters. In the link it sounded like you bought a few sets... have any left?

In your write up you said:

" On a three-channel ABS rear we can swap studs (yes, I had plenty of spare studs and lug nuts too) with the axle in the car but this is a 4 channel rear so it requires disassembly time that we just did not have. I threw in the towel."

Is that backwards? You can pull the sensors and change the rear studs on a 4 channel rear, but I though 3 channel could be an issue.

Looks like a lot of fun!

Chris,
Yes, I have some sets left. I should have the BCBK chapter up on my site pretty quick with a lot of pictures and weights and such.

Kevin,
Yes, on a three channel the reluctor is in the center case and the backside of the axle flange is open (just like non-abs rears). On a 4channel there is a reluctor ring right behind the axle flange. I've seen some pics online of different setups (maybe diff axle ratios??) on the axle flange end that looked different sizes, but on this one it wasn't happening. I'll try and throw up some pics when I get a chance as I've read the same thing.

I've changed two sets of studs in 4 channel rears. Typically you just have to grind the edge of the "head" of the stud.

Kevin,

Those are LS rear ends, the ones we use on Bic are all LT rear ends.

The LS rear end has the integral drum brake as the emergency brake so the rotor is deeper to house the integral drum brake.

The LT rear ends have the little lever on the caliper and use the normal caliper as an emergency brake so the arrangement is very different than the pics you posted in your threads. I'll try and get a snap.

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it! It was a ton of fun and I've got hours of vid that I'll hopefully put into some fun clips!


For folks who wanted more info on Stan's brake upgrade kit.
