I didn't want to hijack uglychevy383's post about his conversion to 8 lug...but I have a similar question I picked up my 14 ff this weekend and have begun converting it to disk brakes... So now I need to think about my front conversion... I have a 72 k10 that needs more brakes in a big way.. My question is where does the 72 dana 44 fall in to the year breaks? ? Are the 72 1/2 ton spindles compatable with 3/4 ton hubs? 72 and 73 did use the same brakes didn't they? Heres what I think I need... thats what gets me in trouble,,,,thinkin... 73 3/4 ton backin plates 2 73 3/4 ton rotors F&R 4 73 3/4 ton hubs 2 73 3/4 ton studs 73 3/4 ton calipers (for rear) 2 bearing seals and grease oh yea wheels and tires so am I totally off or have I figured it out?
