So the other day I saw that Wilwood makes a big brake kit for the V

Wilwood Big Brake Kit for Nissan Versa and Cube

I'm wondering if it would be possible to have a bracket fab'd up that would use the factory front caliper in the rear? and then you could just use the normal (or maybe slotted?) v rotors in the rear as well as pads.

Just figured it would be a good use of the front calipers if you were to buy the wilwood's! Anybody have any input? I know bob converted to rear disk but I remember reading he used sentra brake parts. Figured this would be a "cheaper" option

Except that they don't make discs for the rears, only drums. That's why Bob used the Sentra. And he didn't just use the rotor, he replaced the whole assembly.

Pretty sure the Sentra rear hubs almost "bolt right up", but go to any wreckers and look at Sentra's and go getcha some.

I think you're better off going the Sentra rear route, adapting a front caliper to rear use is a pain and that's before dealing with the park brake issue

I know they don't, was just thinking what if the fronts would fit on the rear. I was tired though haha

If I do decide to do this I'll just buy new ones. I work at a shop and will probably be getting a second job at autozone. Parts should be cheaapppp :grin

Who needs a parking brake! lol Jk I use mine every time I park. I think adapting it would be as simple as fabbing up a bracket to hold it and running lines.
