BMW 2002 Rear Disc Brake Conversion

My 1974 2002 BMW has been sitting in my garage since 2005 undergoing many changes, while I’ve been driving a late model Tahoe. Yeah, I know, it’s a shame. Especially when considering it’s the only one like it in my state, Arkansas. That’s okay, she’ll be out again soon, turning heads everywhere she goes.

My wide-body conversion is one of my favorite mods, that includes 15″ BBS-RS wheels and Sumitomo 50 series tires. Here she is parked in the garage waiting for the last few things to be completed before the trip to the body shop for final body touch ups and paint.

As you can see, I’m not a 2002 purist. This is a Resto-Mod project.

Thinking lately about all of the last steps needed to complete my project, I decided the last mechanical upgrade should be the rear disc brake conversion. I’ve already done the 320i front disc brake conversion using the vented discs and Girling calipers.

While researching all of the parts required for the rear disc brake conversion, I’ve been reading and considering:

  • At what cost
  • What’s available
  • Quality of products
  • Degree of difficulty
  • Future parts availability

After my research I’ve decided to put together my own kit that I will use in my car and make it available for sale to everyone interested in a BMW 2002 Rear Disc Brake Conversion.
