    Me too, let me know how that goes.

    I'm dailying my squirt while I do a different project, but I imagine I'll need calipers, discs, and a bracket.

    Does it require a new spindle? I'm pretty good at jury rigging.

    I did the full swap a few months back you will need the emergency brake cables their are 2 full spindles with knuckles the one set of trailing arms the other is the same brake calipers disc brake rotors and pads I also changed out sway arm bushings while swap was being done.Purchased complete swap minus the rotors and pads from another FEOA member on facebook FEOA page just be careful a few are selling junk
