    Anyone know any companies or guys on this board who make the Dana 60 disc conversion kits? My buddy has a rear Dana 60 and would like to convert to discs...figured someone on here must have done it and knows where to get them! If you could let me know which rotors and other parts to get (which year vehicles to take them off) that would be great!

    Thanks!

    Keith..
    I'd buy the brackets from Misfit or Burbinator.. then go to the part's store's and pickup up brand new rotor's for a 3/4 ton truck.. I think I was quoted around 40 bucks each, then get some Dana 44 caliper's or Caddy calipers..
    All total it will cost alot cheaper than buying a complete kit.

    Ok, I didn't know they had the brackets for the D60...always see them for the 14bff, but not for the D60...I will see what they can tell me. I'm pretty sure he was going to just buy the parts store rotors, etc, just trying to find out what years to look for, or even better, what part numbers someone else already used. Thanks for the info, I will see if I can get a hold of them...
