    What is Everything you need for a disc brake conversion on a 14 bolt?
    Also, while we are at it, what do you need to do a full rebuild of the 14 bolt ? Thanks!

    New seals and the simple tools to tear it down and rebuild it. Don't replace bearings and races unless they need to be.

    1. Misfits brackets and spacers ($65.00)
    2. Bolts to hold caliper-2 1/2" long (8 @ $0.80)
    3. Locking nuts on the back of the bolts cause I'm paranoid
    (8 @ $0.65)
    4. 1975 Dana 44 8 lug rotors (2 @ $35.99 w/ 2 yr waranty at Auto Zone.
    5. New seals for the bearings (berings were fine)(2 @ $2.59)

    and a big trash can cause the drums are too big for paper weights /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    What about calipers? Do Misfit's brackets also use 78 Eldorado Calipers?

    Yea the dana 44 calipers should bolt in just the same, but without a parking brake.
