Technical Question, Rear Brake Conversion
#1
Hello out there, newbie here, with a question that I cannot find the answer to with Google.

I am building a track car [It is not a Berlingo, in fact, it's not even PSA], and I've decided to use a torsion beam from a Berlingo, I believe it was a mark II I pulled it off. It needs rebuilding...surprise.

But I am wondering if anyone knows if other model stub axles and hubs will fit the Berlingo arms in order to provide me with rear disc braking.

Thanks in advance for those who are able to help.

First place to start would be 306 or Citroen ZX

I think 406 as well.

Easiest fix is to track down a 405Mi-16 rear beam it has the correct mounts, and an ARB, that is the only one that is a direct replacement, Im doing the same when I get a few days off work, and have the correct beam sat in the yard!, one fell swoop, disks, calipers, ARB and thicker torsion bar!

Hi,

Thanks for the information.

It's not a Berlingo that the beam is being fitted to, it's a Golf! Smile

I will take a look at the 306' and 406's in the yards.

Also does anyone know how low you can go with the torsion bars?

Forget the last question, I've just lowered it, and the answer is LOW Smile Smile

306 Estate/ Xsara VTS beams are worth a look too as they have bigger ARB's IIRC

Pete, are you saying that I should take the arms from those beams? And the ARB, and they'll fit my Berlingo beam?

Cheers

To update this thread, I've found a 405 rear beam with discs that is as said, identical to the berlingo beam except for the torsion bars. so I'm grabbing that too!!
