    ok on my 76 blazer, im getting ready to put my new axles under it.

    there only 44 up front, and 12 in rear, like i alreayd have, just lowered geard

    but before i install them, id like to replace the brakes upfront of course
    but on the rear
    where do i get a kit, or what do i need to
    convert the rear to disk brakes

    and once i do convert it, what is the best disks to run, pads and ect.

    im running 35's, so i know i need to step up from stock,
    but have no idea what to do

    i was also wondering about brake lines, are superlift lines
    pretty good? if not who makes the best /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Yeah, A-trons rear disc kit for 10 and 12 bolts is pretty slick. The write up is on the home page I believe...

    I'm pretty sure he also offers a rear brake line kit that will work really well with the disc kit.
