Re: rear disc brakes
There are some Lincoln brackets that I've seen on ebay for less than $100 that would use the existing mounting holes to mount a caliper, but it's not hard to do a custom setup. If you grind on the axle flange a little bit you can fit a dana 44 rotor right onto the axle, then buy some cheap weld-on caliper brackets and fit them up then weld them onto the housing. You could do the same for a 8.8" axle but it would take way more grinding since the axle flange is almost 1" larger than the d44 rotor inside diameter. Look on ebay, there are all kinds of 9" disk kits that might give you some ideas. I believe it was the Lincoln Versailles that had the factory disks.
