    amazing what typing the words "14 bolt disc brake conversion" in Google brings up /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Say if thats not the one you were looking for.

    I didn't look at that companies parts but I doubt they are the cheapest. You can find disc brake bracketry really cheap(sub $70). In all the conversion is quite simple I feel.

    I prefer the diy4x brackets. They may be $5 or $10 more, but it's worth it to have solid spacers instead of pipe.

    would you pay extra for a 90degree bend to help guide the caliper like the factory backing plate has?
