Disc brakes on my CJ7

I am thinking about putting disk brakes on my 86 CJ7 Dana 44 rear axle. I have read that Scout II front calipers, rotors, studs, and caliper brackets are all you need.

Is this correct? If so, what year Scout?

Shouldn't I also replace the master cylinder?

Is this worth doing? How much better would the braking be?

Re: Disc brakes on my CJ7

I have been looking at Caddy calipers, weld on brackets, and ford rotors. I have to finish the too many other things forst, but that is what I plan on in the future.
P.S. the caddy calipers give you an emergency brake in the calpier. The are from eldorado's.

Re: Disc brakes on my CJ7

How are the Caddy Eldorado Ebrakes Activated? does it use a cable? I'v ebeen looking for the past few days on dropping Discs on my AMC20 and I'm just rying to figure out which calpier and rotor. What year caddy for the caliper and what year and model for the ford rotor?

thanks

Re: Disc brakes on my CJ7

Actually I just found this article:

http://www.off-road.com/chevy/reviews/tsm/

Imagine that, another great tech article on ORC!!! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Granted this artucle is about a GM 14 bolt, but the parts are the same as listed above. some aspects may be helpful for others.
