Re: Question about brakes
I experience the same problem with my Scout axles. What's worse is I have manual brakes. Try to stop - pedal to the floor. I have to pump the brakes to get them to work. After a few stops, they return to normal. I can't explain it either, but I know it's attributed to water.
As far as a rear disk conversion, there are quite a few writeups floating around. I have the conversion planned sometime in the future, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I am going to use brackets from AA Manufacturing, GM calipers, and CJ front rotors (the ones from around 1978, bigger than the 80-86 rotors). I'm not concerned about an e-brake, as I will setup a line lock.
