Did Dak's ever come with rear disc brakes? If they did what years would fit on my 2000 Quad cab Sport? Would I have to change the existing brake lines and or the metering block?
Have you looked at the two of them? This is what was stated and is accurate;Why would the hard lines be specific to each type of system? If the routing changes then yes they are specific. But aside from that the tubing size and length does not affect the brake performance. Drum or disc brakes, both are similar pressure wise and neither are fluid flow dependent. Drum brakes may require more fluid flow to move the slave cylinder enough to push the brake shoes to the drums. The running clearance on disc brakes is maybe .030", so the caliper piston does not have to move out much.
The hard lines attached to the rear are specific to each type of brake system. If the lines are good on the sourced rear, use them.
If you put it in 4wd or have AWD you'll grenade the transfer case.I think my gear ratio is 3:55 in the rear. If it is what would be the effects of having a 392 (RT) rear end and the stock trans that came with my truck?
Duly noted........ Note to self do not engage the four wheel drive that doesn't work. (I am Not being a smart ass with you @Zaan I promise ) I only have one CV axle up front (passenger side) Because the driver side went out and I dont have the money to replace it yet.If you put it in 4wd or have AWD you'll grenade the transfer case.
No that won't hurt anything. Although the 4wd front diff is tied in with the engine mount. Might run into an issue there.Duly noted........

Yet another stupid question for you... If I just remove my whole front axle setup and go back to two wheel drive will that hurt anything? I dont even use the four wheel drive. Hell I can't remember the last time I took it off road or used the 4x4.
