Salsibury dics brake rear end

I was just wondering about the lucky few that got a rear end with disc brakes form David. What else has to be done when one of these gets installed in a truck that had a drum brakes?

unbolt drive shaft, unbolt flex brake line from old axle,unbolt trailing arms from axle, unbolt the plate that hold the balljoint to the top of the axle, swap the axles, bolt trailing arms on, bolt plate down on new axle, re-attach driveshaft, bleed blakes. Done

Key to this is to unbolt the plate that holds the rear ball joint. These are known for being mothers and removing them almost always fooks the rubber boot. By simply unbolting the plate, Bobs your Uncle.

Good to know that the brake lines are a simple re-attach. I was hoping I wouldn't have to deal with Classic Tube, etc.

Doesn't sound too bad. What's the difference between disc versa drum in the strength department?

same housing,diff,shafts are slightly different but not much. I have used drum brake shafts in disc brake axles while waiting for a new replacement. Its pretty easy to convert a drum setup over to discs. There's a couple write ups on here.

The proportioning is different, but no one seems to care.
