break converstion

I have a 1997 ford ranger with drum breaks in the rear I was wondering if it would be worth it to convert to disk all the way around mind you have a 8 inch lift and 35s on my truck

Obsolutely Yes.

Search for COBRA rear disc brake conversion how-to written by a member named dangerranger01. It also covers putting SN95 Mustang GT rear brakes on a Ford 7.5 or 8.8" 28spline axle. It is hands down the best and cheapest rear disc conversion out there.

Yeah its worth it. Drum brakes in my opinion should of died out with the 90's. Disc is so superior in almost every way possible.

^A member on this site is selling a disc brake conversion kit.
