    I can't seem to find my magazine with the artical on rear disc brake conversion for a 14 bolt. If anybody has the info on the suppliers (I think it was TSM) and the parts I need to get from the bone yard I would appreciate it.

    Stephen, ever thout about making a kit?

    thanks, harry

    TSM made it, and you only need to get the calipers. I believe they are off of a cadilac. Stephen probably won't make a kit for this because it doesn't really represent an add-on that would make any money. There are already a few kits on the market, and priced as low as they are, why would he? Unless, of course, he can improve upon them somehow. I'd contact TSM and get all of the info before buying, to determine if you can easily get everything you need for the conversion.

    Pardon my ignorance....but who is TSM? Is there a website I can check out?

    I have come across lots of other parts sources (ChevyDuty, LMC, Brothers, Vintage Chevy Trucks, ORD, ORU) but I don't recall seeing TSM in my "surf travels".

    Harry, I order the kit from Skip at TSM monday. Complete kit cost me $485.00 with shipping to Calif from Colorado. Offroad Unlimited also has one but too much money for my Blood. TSM Web page is down right now is what they told me. Phone # 303-688-6882 talk to Skip.

    We're actually carrying the TSM stuff now, just not making a lot of noise about it yet because we're already slammed here till the truck's done. I figure there's no use re-inventing the wheel, they have it nailed. I have one of their older kits on my k5 and it's great. Solid, easy to install, common parts, what else can you ask for in a simple disc kit?

    This had to be one of the easiest, yet one of the most beneficial mods I have done to date. Just order the backing plates from TSM (Skip) for about $150 and the rest from an auto parts store. Slam it on in a couple hours....todd

    I called them about 2 weeks ago and they wanted $250 for just the caliper brackets. So I made my own. The one thing that I'm unsure of is the wheel stud lengths. I used the gm rotors and know my lugnuts are a couple threads shy of going all the way on. does the tsm kit come with longer studs?
