    When I said everything was still complete, I didn't mean I was using it all. I'll go to a different S box, basicly I will only use the axle. Ron Pope has disc brakes. With the shocks on the rear moved in and all that, this won't be no road race deal.

    Sounds like a good plan. I've switched several solid axles to disc but never with a kit. I usually just engineer a bracket for the caliper by using the cheap weld on brackets like speedway sells. I think the biggest obstacle was when we put S-10 rotors on a 38 Ford pickup and had to machine a spacer. Usually costs about $100 with the brackets and new S-10 calipers and used rotors. Here's a picture of mine on the Econoline axle in my 29. I used Aerostar rotors over the original Econoline hubs. New bearings, calipers, the brackets and hoses and I still had less than $200 into the whole set up.

    Ron's kit is $250. I figure by the time I gather everything up that I'd be better off going with him. I hope this axle has the bigger spindle like the trucks, he said he can do either size but bigger is better to me. Come 2 sizes in 38.
