  1. greeting fellow 626-ers. Proud 626 owner from pakistan. its a 626 gd 1991, 1.6 (f6 carb). i did a rear disc conversion on mine few months ago, using sp20 parts. the rear drum (left side) cracked because of its age and overly used. all four shocks were leaking and had springs from different cars. as the condition i bought it. parts arent readily available in my region. so either modification of parts or custom is done. no importing isnt a easy win, i was about to get new drums for 100$ on ebay. but shipping was 380$ and custom duty around 200$. 680$ for 2 drums, after a brief lookout in the scrape yard i found i found 4 complete struts from a BJ, thats the closest i can get to gd shocks lol. so i installed the front ones simple to no mods. rear shocks of my gd were shot, so i moded the BJ ones by adding some thick gauge plate and welding studs. AC ARC welding worked fine. shocks went in nice and firm. for the disc brake conversion i used the sp20 rear hubs. they fit nice. i had to use the BJ lower control arm bolt (long 17mm one on the hub side) and had to put a spacer in between the hub was kinda smaller then the GD. some steel pipe bush taken out from old bushings went cut and in. hubs mounted nice and easy. have to make a custom handbrake cable. the problem with these hubs the wheel pops out a bit and goes into too much camber. the bj is lighter so the springs needs to be replaced, will do. but for now i have to rectify the wheel pop out. HAs anyone used sp20 hubs in gd here ? if i cut the lower control arms shorter will it help ?
