    I found a new Chevy axle with rear disk brakes (factory). Has anyone put one of these under there Blazer? If so did you have to buy? An adjustable proportioning valve? You have to get one of those anyways when you do the disk brake conversion right? I'm calling on it Monday to find out the cost and length of it.

    I've only seen the calipers on those things in passing, but I'd say that you could probably do with the same proportioning valve, master, and booster that I used for my setup.

    I believe the new 6 lug pattern is different. I would make sure your wheels fit on it ok.
