Hi, I need some advice regarding upgrading the brakes on my 81 CB2 626. The old solid discs are really uninspiring so I really want to fit vented discs to the front.
Is it possible to fit SA22C front vented discs on my stub axle's, and can I use the calipers from the same car.
Any thoughts or ideas are welcome.

Hey bloke,
RX7 stub axle is different diameter and offset to CB2. I went through all this with my 626.
There is nothing "off the shelf" to suit our cars.
The quick solution is to fit the whole RX7 strut - providing you allow for adjustable strut tops
to correct the camber, can live with the front end being a good 3" lower than standard and tyres
wanting to scrape the guards! :(
(I have fully rebuilt S2 RX7 struts sitting at home with new rotors, bearings, pads - doing nothing
because I fitted them up, HATED how the car looked, and took them back out! :evil: )

The better solution is save your bux and get a custom set made to suit your car:

I would like to second this suggestion.
