    You can re-use your 1/2 ton calipers and hubs....but everything else from the axle tubes out needs to be replaced. (ie, backing plates, spindle, rotor, etc)

    So I need the rotors, spindle, and back plate. Is that it or is there something else I am missing?

    Not sure if you know this but there is a write up about it in the technical section up top. Its for a D44 but is the same for the 10 bolt.

    No need for a new spindle. You need the rotor, hub assembly (not the locking hub, the part the rotor is attatched to that holds the bearing races), and the backing plate. - Doug
