    Stainless Steel Brakes and a few others make a 10 bolt disk kit. Apparently, the rear disk setup off of a 99-up Silverado is a direct bolt-on too.

    hey, that could be some really good info to know!!! I'll have to check it out and see if this is cheaper then doing the kit from SS! [​IMG]

    <font color=blue>TSM makes the brackets, your parts store has the front rotors and the junkyard has some 80-85 eldo calipers. Add flexhoses and some caliper pins and your done.</font color=blue>

    could you take the whole rear end from a 99 up silverado and swap out an 89, and what would you have to do with the proportioning valve if anything


    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?
    doen't matter it NEEDS A BIGGER MOTOR

    That's exactly what I was thinking - I've been watching the boneyards for one, and haven't seen one yet. According to my local brake guru, the proportioning valve shouldn't need changed, only the lines and e-brake cables. Spring pads would need relocated, but that's quick and simple. I'd really like to get my hands on one and see if it works, since I could probably use a new rear-end anyway.

    I have a 10 bolt I did with the TSM kit about 3 years ago. All went well, although I had to go to the yard to exchange caddy e-brake calipers twice. Couldn't be rebuilt. No problems with operation over the years. Hindsight being what it is, I would just make the brackets and use standard front rotors instead of spending the $ for the TSM kit. Just my .02 $ worth.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.
