it is difficult to adapt ?

It's my first Zuki since all years with Lada Rolling Eyes

For the moment i try to search new brake cylinders ... not big modifications for the moment.

But LJ80 parts are more and more difficult to found.... exept if you buy a car for parts ...

Right, I assume all the brakes are dead?

I have some seals here for front cylinders but I would advise you convert to disc brakes

This is easy to do, you need to buy a front axle off a Suzuki SJ410 and its simply a case of swapping the Swivels and CV joints over.
This gives you your front disc conversion, a rear disc conversion is done in the same way as a suzuki SJ.

nice looking 80... looks in better condition than mine at least Wink

go with what nat says and go discs all round.. easy to do and much better..

or if you dont want to go for the 410 parts route, theres an even easier way using the original CV's and swivels by cutting down the brake drums:










(photos taken off www.LJ10.com)


you just need the calipers, a.d caliper mounts off a SJ 413 or 410..

only bad thing i can say is that if you do it this way your stuck with locked front hubs. if you do it as nat says using 410 hubs and CV's you can fit free wheeling hubs

I much prefer the SJ front wheelbearing and CV setup, SJ CV's are easy to get, LJ ones aren't.

Why not just fit the 410 axles in a SPOA layout and be done with it Wink

LJ axles havent got an offset diff like the SJ's. put an SJ axle under an lj and you'll have props out of alignment all over the show...

In SPOA form it's not a problem, even less so if you use a SJ drive line components to match.

I couldn't watch the video all the way through. LJs are becoming classic cars and they were being badly punished. I don't think that classsic cars should be in museums but they shouldn't be abused either. Poor little LJs.

TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU

I WATCHED IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED WITH THE WAY THAT POOR LBJ WAS BEING ABUSED

AND YOU WONDER WHY 4X4'S HAVE A BAD REP (COZ OF PEOPLE LIKE THAT)
SOME PEOPLE JUST HAVENT GOT A CLUE

What happens??? The video was the first test of LJ. Do not abuse, do not use all their capabilities.
Now I am changing engine, disc brakes, and roll cage. When the LJ you are ready, it proves.
