    I have searched and found quite a bit of posts for the 14 bolt full floater rear disk brake conversions, but my Suburban did not have the full floater axle. Are there kits for this application also? Has anyone performed this?

    Is TSM the only rear disk brake kit for the semi floater 14 bolt rear end? I searched and found several for the full floater.

    I guess TSM is the only company making the rear disk brake conversion for the SF 14 Bolt rear. I have a full floater also, but the shock mounts are opposite of the 84 Suburban. I did not want to open up another can of worms by swapping axles also.

    If you can get me some specs I can get them cut for the 14sf. Also, what spacers would you prefer? Solid or tube(actualy I use 1" round tube and cut a .5" hole so it is thicker than tubing) obviously tube is cheaper than solid. 6 lug or 8 lug?
