Rear disk brakes

OK, I have done the search thing over and over again and could not get a clear answer. I would like a junk yard setup to put rear disk brakes on my 86CJ7 Dana 44. Anyone have a detailed list of parts? Anyone have a writeup on doing this?

Re: Rear disk brakes

OK girls! Here's where I'm going for rear disks. I've already got calipers and 2 bolt brackets from a Widetrac D30. I read somewhere that '97 Sidekick (4dr, hardtop) rotors *should* fit OVER the rear flanges of my D44. I went down to Advance and had them yank one for me to measure. Armed with those dimensions All I need to measure is my rear flange (semi-confirmed to fit over a M20 2 pc flange). Once everything is in place & aligned, I'll tack some ears to the axle tubes for the 2bolt bracket to mount. Swap in some longer studs, replumb the rear lines and all should be good. It should actually cost me less than the front conversion [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!

Re: Rear disk brakes

I havent tried it yet or even really took any measurements. But how about the late model grand cherokee disk setup. They are a simple bolt on to the housing flange. They look like the explorer dics so im sure you can have the rotors drill to 5 on 5 1/2. If the bolt pattern on the housing flanges are the same it would be easy to bolt up. Also the calipers are small so there is no need to change the master. Check it out.
