whats the difference in weight big diff? and the rear drum are such a pain in the ass to change the brakes thats one of the main reasons i was going to change it over.There are plenty of people doing it both ways. I personally prefer the feel of rear discs. However plenty of people run drums because they are lighter, last forever, and have more braking than the rear end of the car needs. They simply put on big front brakes since the front does most of the braking anyways.
Many of the components are the same, so I would imagine the drum assembly probably weighs about the same as the caliper. However you still have the 4-7lbs of the brake rotor (depending on rotor size). Add in that it is unsprung weight.whats the difference in weight big diff? and the rear drum are such a pain in the ass to change the brakes thats one of the main reasons i was going to change it over.
lol. good reason.All IMO, guys
More contact Area (better braking, initially at least)
Already on the car:silly:
PITA to change
Faster brake fading on longer stretches
IMO, it's all about what type of driving you want the car to be set up for.
