    Is there anyone that makes a disc brake conversion for the front axle on a 4X4 ? Will the rotors,calipers,backing plates from a newer Blazer with a Dana 44 fit on 69 spindles? Thanks for any help

    <font color=blue>Take everything from the spindles out off of a newer (71+) frontend. Grab the booster, master and proportioning valve too.</font color=blue>

    Thanks for the info, I have access to an '87 but the gears are trash or I'd take the whole thing and keep life simple. So when you say from the spindle out does that include the axle stub bolted to it or can I use mine?

    <font color=blue>Take the inner shafts too. They have the larger steering u-joint and will pull right out when you remove the spindles.</font color=blue>

    Wouldn't a '87 have a 10 Bolt? Will 10 bolt stuff work on a Dana 44?

    '71 Blazer CST with alot of rust

    <font color=blue>The axleshafts wont, but the brakes will. Look for shafts from a 73-up dana 44.</font color=blue>
