    Hey guys

    I have two questions for you guys. I have a manual column, and I need a new auto column, can get one for 20 bucks but it needs a key, will the ignition cylinder from the manual column work in the auto column? any guides for doing so?

    Also, what all parts are needed to convert a rear 10 bolt to disk brakes?

    Thanks alot!

    Jack
