    i could not get them fior napa. im gonna need a set of four i guess since im doing the rear disc brake conversion.

    the dana 44 had a heat shield and another (maybe dust cover) that went on right after the caliper bracket.

    anyone know where i can get these?


    thanks

    They are not needed. But if you want them, try the stealership and junk yard.

    my buddy said i would go through rotors a lot faster without them. iwould rather not even use them.


    do the wheels allow enough to cool them down?

    They may be heat shields, but i was always under the impression that they were more dust shields than anything. The wheel tends to protect the front the rotor from dust/dirt/some mud, and the shield does the same for the back.

    I has been my experience that they are dust covers and MUD HOLDERS!!![​IMG]
