    So we are finally going to swap A.R.'s 70' 1/2 ton over to 3/4 ton with discs. We're using a 1 ton rear for the proper spring pad width. From what I've read on hear this should be a bolt in, anything I missed? What about swapping over the power brakes? We have a 76' donor truck so parts should be no problem. Just thought I'd get yalls .02 before digging in. Thanks.

    You may have to swap brake proportioning valves if his still had front drum brakes instead of discs. Also, you may have to relocate one rear shock mount- maybe both- but you might be able to get away with reusing one of the existing rear shock mount locations.
