you'll need the proper housing ends, so if you don't have a housing yet keep that in mind. pretty neat emergency brake set up too. all of the parts can be found in a junk yard.

Wilwood makes an adjustable proportioning valve, I've never used it though.

i have the housing which i can get for next to nothing. but im wondering about how much will i have to spend to get a rear disc setup for it. i know they make kits brand new, but is there something i can pull out of a junkyard that will bolt on directly? i know nothing about the ford 9'' rear end other than it praised at the dragstrip in a lot of chevys and fords. do they still make ford 9'' rears in new vehicles today? if not, did they ever come factory with disc brakes? im looking for the cheapest way to do this and what vehicles i can take parts from. thanks!
