Icon5 explo 31 spline

well the 8.8 28 spline that i was gonna buy for 300 turns out it had alot of wear took the cover off and thier was chunks of pieces missing out of the splines and i thank god i didnt buy it lol

but a local junk yard has a crap load of explorers with 31 spline 8.8's so i figured ill end up with a expo rearend so what do i have to do if i get disk brakes??? do i just use every hose and cable that my drum brakes used?

im going to try to find a 8.8 with a parking brake cables and ect...

well aside from welding the spring perches and shock mounts on the axle in the proper spots...

For the brakes you will use two explorer passenger side brake hoses, one on the passengerside and one on the driverside. Then you use the ranger center brake hose to the diff like on a ranger, then you just make the hardlines that go from the center hose to each of the outter hoses.

For the cables youre gonna have to deal with those or do some searching here and on TRS. I haven't done it yet so I can't really say the best way.
