Hi Tom:

I am considering the same move - all 4 discs, as my brakes on my 91 80 Series are "just adequate", and I get a lot of fade at times.
I am interested in the slotted rotors, and would appreciate ny feedback on these.

Hi Guys
The DBA slotted rotors are the way to go if you need new rotors. Suggest you do some ringing around for the best prices, there are however a few tricks that can be done quit easily for a big benefit.
1, early 80's have smaller brakes all round. You can buy the front callipers/rotor and hub to suit later 80's from a wrecker, and they go straight on, no need for 16 inch rims as the rears of the later models needed the bigger wheels.
2, 100 series pads fit straight in later 80 front callipers and give even better braking.

Hi Dozer:
Read this with interest. Does the same apply to the front rotors in terms of a "straight fit"?
Thanks
