1979 F250 Rear Brakes

I want to switch my rear drum brakes over to disk brakes. You wouldn't happen to know where I can find a kit for that do you? I have a 1979 F250 Custom RWD with a 400cid. Thoughts?

you should be able to make a simple caliper plate out of plate steel and use stock front rotors and calipers of some application(re-drill rotor bolt stud holes pattern if needed, weld up and grind smooth old holes first))

should be lots of info and pics out there on this on google and on pirate4x4.com

many have done it, lots and lots



good luck
