I have not had any problems with my drums in the back but I still want to do the rear disc conversion

I have totally stock brakes on my truck, with 35s, and it doesn't have any problems. I have never in 50,000 miles had a problem with any sortof binding, but it could be our climate out here as it doesn't get very hot or cold... I dunno, I punish my brakes pretty good and they haven't been problematic yet...

Hey D have you rerun and brake lines on your truck??? Are they close to anything hot that could be getting the fluid too hot and applying the rears at all times????

D. wasn't there a failed group buy going on for those rear disc brakes that had them down to $400 something if you got 6 people to buy into it?

So you got the Mustang brake kit?

When are you planning on doing the install, if I have the time it would be neat to drive up and observe the installation! Its only like 4 hours to Buffalo from here.
