So I dove head-over-heels into my Dana 70 today to start the disc conversion. My brackets are 14BFF brackets that were won in a drawing from Ruff Stuff Specialties (Thanks GravelMaker) They have a slight offset: Here are some pics: The drum w/ the hub separated The back side of the hub The front side of the hub The spindle With the offest I need the brackets about 1.5" closer to the rotor to properly locate the caliper So, now to the questions: Can I build or have built a spacer and run 1.375" longer G8 bolts or is that too much length to make it unsafe? Or should I get weld-on brackets, weld the brackets to the axle where they sit? I'm leaning towards the spacers for 2 reasons. 1) It's only 1.375" due to the offset of the RSS brackets. 2) I don't have access to a welder powerful enough that I can bring to my house. I will head the spacer route unless someone on here says it's a really bad idea. Also, is the seal on the back of the hub enough to keep dirt & water out of the bearings without being inside of the drum? Thanks for any and all input!
