    8 lug disc brake kits $315 shipped! www.lugnut4x4.com

    I am selling a complete bolt on disc brake conversion kit for $315 including shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 states! Yep I really mean complete - here's what you get:

    3/8" thick laser cut brackets
    grade 8 mounting hardware
    new GM rotors
    rebuilt GM calipers with steel pistons
    semi metallic brake pads
    new inner hub seals
    new caliper pins
    rubber flex hoses
    banjo bolts with copper washers
    anti-rattle clips

    awww.mustangfarm.com_forsale_reardisc.jpg

    I have kits for these axles:

    73-87 chevy single rear wheel full floater 14 bolt axle 10.5" ring gear

    62-72 eaton corporate rear end, full floater ( same kit as the 73-87 14 bolt)

    73-87 chevy cab and chassis full floater 14 bolt axle 10.5" ring gear

    73-87 Chevy SRW axle with cab and chassis hubs 14 bolt axle 10.5" ring gear

    88-up second generation 14 bolt 10.5 full floater/ need to know:
    if drums slide off after removing wheel-need "gen 2" kit/ if wheel is removed and drum is behind the wheel hub and studs then you need the 73-87 14 bolt kit. (there is no reasoning as to what year will have what, we have seen both versions all thru the 90s)

    79-up 14 bolt semi-float 8 lug 9.5" rear axle / not positive what year this axle was first produced / this kit sells for $340.00 because new wheel studs come with it.

    72-79 ford dana 60 rear axle/ have found that it will fit 68-71 ford dana 60 rear axles but slight spacer modification is sometimes required using flat washers.

    76-93 dodge dana 60 rear axle

    94-up dodge dana 60 rear axle - Weld on kit only

    68-72 chevy dana 60 rear axle

    72-up jeep pick-up dana 60 rear axle( jeep took over the gm dana 60 rear axle in 1972 when chevy dumped it in favor of the 14 bolt) same kit as the chevy 60

    Dana 70 axles $300 (no seals) These are weld on brackets except Ford Dana 70 and 70U SRW

    Ford sterling axle - $390 (uses special rotors and does not come with seals)

    Other axles? Generally I have found that these same rotors will work on most other axles, but you will need to use weld on brackets. Just tell me the diameter of the tube near the end of the axle and I will send you weld on brackets.

    Instructions? No I don't have detailed instructions. This is really simple to install for anyone who has a clue about how brakes work. Only word of advise is most of my kits require the rotor on the backside of the hub.

    Emergency brakes? Yes, I have eldarodo calipers for $200 more. This gives a manual e-brake that hooks up to your cables.

    I accept paypal or postal money orders. Orders will ship from east TN. I just do this as a side job, so it takes a day or two to box it up and ship out. I do not sell to or ship to Canada.

    Send paypal to gubni at comcast.net and include the year and type of axle you need the kit for.

    You can also call me if you want. I can accept credit cards over the phone. 423-737-0265 -- Shawn

    Upgrade to braided stainless hoses for only $20 more.

    Be nice to add a guide on how to set this up. I want to order this kit for my F-250. Any tips on support?

    My 14 bolt has no drums, and hasn't ever since i bought it. Is there any other way to tell which kit would work for my application?

    The only hard part is taking off the drum brakes. Since there's so many variations I don't feel comfortable writing that. Once you have all that off simply bolt on my braket and put the rotot on the inside of the hub. Press the studs through the rotor into the hub and bolt on the caliper.


    You could send me some pics, but 99% of the 14 bolt kits I sell are older style. Just order that kit and if it doesn't work out I'll swap the brackets since that's the only difference.

    Nope, they clear most 15" rims. Bigger sizes like 16.5" for sure.

    Yes, but it requires more expensive rotors. $390 for that kit.

    This kit is nice. Can someone help me on the brackets? I have the drums off and brake shield. Not sure which way the bracket goes on and where do the seals go? Thanks.

    E-brake does not come standard with my kit. I reccomend a line lock which you can get from summit racing or other similar places. If you want true e-brake I do sell special calipers to do that. They are $200 extra for the pair.

    Yes, all the stock studs work except semi float axles and I include new studs with that one.

    I didn't get studs with mine. Man are they usually hard to get in? I am using an impact gun. As for my setup, how does this look?

    or should the caliper be somewhere else?

    the caliper should be in the 10-11:00 position..... keeps it up outta harms way. in your picture, around about where your diff fill plug is.

    Generally there's no need to use an impact to get the studs on. Also you want the bleeder valve on the caliper to be at the top of the axle.

    Finally got the studs put in. I brought them into work. I think I over pound them in so they wouldn't hold. Got new studs and they are good to go. I would advise changing your bearings when you do this. Maybe add those to the kit?
