  • Conversion to Front Disc

    First, let me ask of anyone needs any of the front drum parts before I toss them.
    if so, let me know.

    It took about 10 min per side to do this conversion ( not including the brake lines and bleeding )
    A few items do not come with this kit. Save the bearing retainer and castle nut to use on the new set. Not sure why this didn't come with it. All other conversions I've done have them.

    I'll post pics next

              i had to take the plate off the back of the boost, i forget if i had to reposition the plate or not, but you need to remove the studs off the place and drill out 1 or 2 new holes. then youll need to notch the top of the plate to clear the nut on the firewall.
              very simple.
