Rear Drum to Disc Brake Conversion Kits for Dakotas and Durangos

I am making this thread to see if there is any interest for a rear disc brake kit. It fits both the 8 1/4" rear and 9 1/4" rear. The best part of all it will clear 15" rims so no need to do the 03/04 disc conversion that doesn't fit a 15" wheel.

Here is the kit: http://www.tsmmfg.com/2552.htm

Still working out the details but so far it is 20% off of 3 or more orders. So we only need three people to make this happen. I am one of the three so we actually need two at the bare minimum.

If interested just post up or PM me.

Again I'm still working on the details but so far it's 20% off three or more orders. We can get more than three people in also if the interest is there.

Could you get the mcahining specs form them to get your own rotors cut?? I'm the EBC slotted/dimpled rotors on the front of my truck right now and they are by far the best rotor I've ever used. And I've been through a few sets of rotors in my time.
Look at the pic in the link. You can see where the back of the rotor comes very close to the mounting bracket. It should be easy to figure how much material needs removed.

I have looked into this before, IIRC it uses GM calipers. For the price shown it likely has no parking brakes. Parking brake calipers are a $180 upcharge from the standard caliper.

If you were to buy the kit/brackets and wanted better calipers w/o the parking brake speedwaymotors sells a GM metric caliper with a oversized piston for $59 ea: http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Big-Bore-GM-Metric-1978-88-Brake-Caliper,25158.html

Wilwood has a aluminum caliper for the GM metric: http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Wilwo...minum-Caliper,8462.html?parentDisplayId=25158
