    Parts I accumulated for a disc brake conversion. Caliper brackets are new but have some surface scale from sitting. Calipers, pads, and hoses are 4 years old and have about 5000 miles on them. These are 1/2-ton calipers off my 1984 K1500 Suburban, and they worked perfectly when I removed them this summer. I think they will fit in a large flat rate box.

    $100 plus shipping.

    I have some old rotors too, make an offer if you want them thrown in.

    So all that's needed is rotors? Edit: throw the rotors in and I'll take them.

    @campfire I don't expect the rotors for free. It came out wrong, I just re-read it.

    Ok, how many do you want? How about $25 each? I have 3 of them in my parts pile.

    2 rotors. What else is needed to convert to discs?

    Disclaimer - I haven't done this conversion, I used a late-model sliding drum brake setup on my rig. You may need shorter lugs, depending on how much spline yours have (the disc is thinner than the drum). You'll need to rework your brake lines to fit the calipers (cut them short and use the hoses provided). If you still have your stock proportioning valve, you'll need to either gut it or install a disc/disc valve. The disc/drum valve keeps residual pressure on the rear circuit, which you don't want for rear disc brakes.
