Bumping an year old thread.
to a non-ABS
vehicle is possible, but the safety & reliability depends on the vehicle, skilled technician & the quality of product.
If the base car has to facility to add ABS
, it should not be a big problem. Nissan cars (without ABS
) has all the provision to add ABS
encoders are located on wheel bearings, so a change in wheel bearing could solve the issue without any major modifications. Sensor is located on the knuckle, which is plugged with a plastic cap in non-ABS
models. So just remove the plug and add the sensor. Wiring harness, brake piping blah blah blah everything has the similar provisions. So it should not be a head ache in these cars.
If the base car has such provisions, you are through with the project. I hope most of the modern cars can be retrofitted as all OEMs target on part commonisation across the variants.
PS: Using OEM
parts rather than after market parts (unless it is highly reliable & direct to fit) is always recommended for all safety related items.
