    Swap on the older hubs and use the 'regular' caliper brackets.

    question one. the spindle specs have changed big time. thay made them shorter. and such you have to use the newer hubs.

    question two. 14ff with pop off drum was somewhere in mid 90s thay started. and the axle it self has been used for over 30 years in 3/4 ton and 1/ton trucks.

    last thing. i have sence gotten in contact with a felow ck5 member and we are now in the proces of making the brackets to use chevy rotors and calipers on the pop off style drum brake setup to convert to disk. the time needed to measurte and cut and ship and test fit will be a few weeks and we will keep all up to date. if this goes threw it will be less money than the other brands for the kit. but we will know more in a few weeks.

    if anyone has more info to share then please feel free to pass it on as this will in the end benifit all of use as a group in our quest to make are play toys and trailer pullers better for are needs . thanks .:wink1:

    That is soooo messed up. That means the pop-off drum style uses a completely different housing than the original 'non-popoff'... even though they were BOTH produced right up to the end of that 90's body style.

    sorry to say but that is correct. the spindle and hub are diffrent. i had both new and old style on my truck and old wont fit. can only get 3 threads of the nut on and then its tight on the spindle.

    dont worry the other member and i will have a kit ready in a few weeks for all to buy and use. will be just as easy to bolt on as the others. :wink1:
