Ive wanted to replace the rear drum brakes with discs ever since i bought my 07 stx last year. ive talked to several people about it and some mentioned a brake swap kit and others mentioned swapping out the whole rear end with one from a 96 explorer. Im also looking at dropping a 500hp V8 down in it and am curious if i decide to go with the explorer frame if it will hold up to that much power of if id just be better off with a new performance rear end and axel setup with and disc kit on it. If i can get away with the explorer rear end then i can just update the gears and axels.
this is what im working with.
