    going from 10 bolts front and rear to dana 44f/corp 14 rear 13" brakes.

    does this require replacing the booster, and master? or direct bolt in on 89 1/2 ton sub?

    My 91 took U-Bolts & the fancy U-Joint (Nappa 447).
    Mine was different as far as the Parking brake cable goes, but aren't those optional equipment?? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    May need a speedo correction depending on what you're doing with ratio/tire-size.
    Very easy swap with air-tools!
