    ok start the flamin, I can swap in a 14 bolt, do a 8 lug conversion to my d44 however I am clueless when it comes to my rear brakes. I recieved a box with my 14 bolt and all the brake parts are inside it. I am not trying to be lazy it just looks daunting.

    my other thoughts were...

    a) use the drums for now
    b) cough up the 200 bucks and convert to disk

    I would like to go disk but need to find out the work level involved. I am not afraid of doing this I am just a visual learner and have a very hard time reading just directions.

    so if it isn't any trouble or if you have a link please help a fellow out. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Do the disc brakes now. It's cheap and very simple to do. Everything is a bolt-on, and you will be much happier with rear discs. I am sure someone has pics of their process...I am just not sure where I have seen them.
