ABS Conversion?

Postby Roger90 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 4:32 am

I have the complete ABS system from the '96 X300 I scrapped out a few years ago. I'm not an enthusiast of ABS brakes. In the 30 years or so they've been in cars I've never used them - not once. I guess I know how to drive...?
I'm considering removing the ABS from my '90 Majestic entirely and just having the "old" vacuum assisted brakes. As these cars get older spare accumulators, pumps and pressure switches will become more problematic and pricey. My car is 28 years old with a build date of '89 and I can see a major PIA may not be that far in the future.

Before you go ahead and remove the ABS system perhaps you should check to see if your insurance company will still cover you and if so how much extra they will charge for this modification.
Some modifications have no additional cost like non OEM alloy wheels and in some cases even performance exhaust systems. But you still have to tell your insurance company or your insurance could be invalid in the event of a claim. (Any excuse not to pay out!)

A serious consideration to be sure?
