    I wonder if I can use brake parts, like the cilinders and the bakes them selves and stuff of a 10bolt rear in a 12 bolt rear.

    The brake parts on the 12bolt are a bit. uh. well. gone or rotten.

    Thanks in advance.

    I unbolted the backing plates from the 10 bolt with everything attached and bolted them onto the 12 bolt. It all worked just fine. It was a direct bolt-on for me.

    I will second that, I did the same thing, just unbolted the backing plates with all the brake stuff still attatched and bolted it right on to the 12-bolt.
