    what all do i need other than brackets for a 14bolt disk conversion? will D44 calipers work?
    and what else? where do i bolt the rotor up? in the back just like the drum? any write ups on this subject?
    is 20 dollars a caliper a good price?

    If you go to my for sale ad " i also have 14 bolt disk brake brackets" on page 3 or so and find the post by prediator he did a great write up on his install. It includes everything you need and a price list. Check it out.

    <font color=blue>The rotor goes behind the hub just like the drum does, and the studs are pressed in from behind. You can use D44 calipers, and $20 each sounds about right
