Fitting Porsche Brakes to a 1302

I have a 71 1302 Super. I would like to adapt Porsche Brakes to the front and rear. I know that you can adapt 944 suspension to the rear of any IRS & to the front of a 1303.

So what about the front of a 1302?
What can be done?

I have seen some that adapted a beetle hub to a porsche rotor, is this an option? what is entailed?


Please help....I want to know what my options are!

I am currently talking with Jim on a few alternatives for adapting Porsche disc brakes to a 1302 other then upgrading to the later 1303 suspension... I will keep everyone posted

We are about to try '87 944 hubs, calipers, and rotors on the
front of a "71 SB (after striking out with CB's disk conversion)
I'll let you know how it goes.

Would that work to mount a Super with 944 spindles?

Sorry I do not know the difference between a 1302 and 1303. Use US terms LOL

The 1302 is the flat windowed 71-72 Super and it has a three bolt strut, mid year 73 they went to a two bolt strut which looks amazingly identical to 924/944 struts and it isn't difficult at all to convert to a 944 spindle.

I think that the way to get a 1302 ('70 to early'73 SB) to work with 944 spindles is to get a pair of lower control arms from a 1303 (late '73 on up) I just found a set in Durham NC. 1303 control arms have ball joints that press into the control arms from the bottom, and have the ball stud pointing upwards.
944 spindles look much like late SB spindles, except they have provisions for mounting a caliper directly to the steering knuckle instead of to an adapter. I intend to use the 944 struts as well, except with SB springs as the 944 springs are much too stiff for a rear engine car, and with stock 1302 strut crowns.
The problem I am experiencing is the difference in the ball joint ball stud diameter. 944 ball joint ball studs are larger than 1303's.
Same is true with the tie-rod end ball studs. Anybody know what ball joints, and tie-rod ends to use?

Cool

Get in touch with CSP. I think they're making balljoints to replace the standard 1303 bottom balljoints but they're the correct size to fit your 944 spindles.

Thanks for the link Mike. I've contacted them and just heard back today.
The closest fit I could find for those ball joints are ones for a Dodge Omni (EEK!):toilet:



Oh... yeah, I also found out that the spindles and hubs we are using are from an '86 944, not an '87 like I thought before (I've honestly never dealt with any Porsche parts before other than working on a '76 914 2.0, so I didn't know) The brake rotors bolt on the back of the hubs we are using. I don't think this should cause any problem though.
