    Well, this was about the first day college hasn't been making life suck with too much work, so I had a little bit of wrenching time.. My burb should be ALOT better lincoln locked and disked... I might even have time to shave a bit before the weekend is over.. I haven't hooked up my chevette lines yet, they're sitting right here in my room though.. Here's my little bit of progress for today..

    Nice job James. Looks like a big improvement over those crusty old drums.

    My axle is a 14 bolt full floater, www.diy4x.com makes the brackets to do the swap. I got all my junk to do it with from advanced auto, autozone, and a few other places like that.. Note, I'm using dana 44 calipers, so I won't have an emergency/parking brake.

    I have around 5 inces of lift and the shocks I got were on a clearance sell at summit, I think they may still be. They're actually for another application, but with a little bit of bushing swapping around, they work just fine. their part number is EDL-20160

    It'll make a big difference, mainly due to the fact that he didn't have any brakes on the rear to begin with:eek1:
