I was reading up in a service manual I bought, and found out my 318 came with rear drums ghead . Has anyone here converted their brakes to rear discs, or know of a good writeup for that? Also, how can I find out which axles came with a limited-slip rear? used

I would go and check the axle but the car is in Miami for now, and I can't pick it up until I am mailed the title, get the car registered, and go and get it.

Thanks again in advance.

don't know of anyone that has done it, but i am sure it has been done. You would have to change the master cylinder and metering block (proportioning valve) as well, and maybe a few other things. But i did put the drums from your car on my 02 :P bigger brakes rule
