advances traction control rear disc's

Hey everyone,

I recently stumbled upon an 03 zx5 in the junk yard and it had advances traction control with rear discs !





what I am wondering is :

-Should I replace bearings or whole rear hub. I don't want to have to replace it after its put on the car. Seemed okay at the junk but dont wanto risk it.
-Is there a way I can test if the pistons works without putting on the car ?
-What are the difference's between SVT and ATC rear discs.
-There is some damage to one of the spindles should I be worried? Thinking of getting it welded ? any thoughts.

I bought and installed those and I felt no difference in stopping power. The difference between those and the svt set up is the hub or caliper brcket and rotor size. They use the same pads and calipers. That is all I can answer, sounds like you got a good deal though!

Since you got such a great deal on the parts, I would be replacing that spindle and then the rear hubs while you are at it. Just so you know those wont be issues going forward. You should be able to find new stuff at the parts stores too.

Did you install svt rears ?
It would be more for the look and maintenance. Drums rust so fast and just look plain ugly, compared to disc's.

I am gonna start my search for the parts slowly since I am planing on putting them on an mk2 when I eventually get one.
Right now my local stealership wants 217 for a rear disc spindle and 184 for hub.

I found some advance track brakes at a junk yard too and installed them.

I'm not seeing an ebrake cable in those pictures, did you get one? If not, might want to go back and snatch it up because your cable for the drums won't work

SVT setup uses a different caliper bracket, rotor, hose (two-piece vs single), and emergency cable, and stand-off bracket where the hose mounts to the top of the spindle.

I recently did this swap and noticed a nice improvement, but I used high quality Akebono pads.

Even with the damaged spindle, nice score! I'd have a machinist look at repairing it. I paid a lot more for my setup :(
