I know everything I see to replace the closed axle in my 49 Styleline I need to look for a 60" drum to drum from a Nova, S10, Camaro, etc. I get all of that. But my question is I want disk brakes in the rear. If I remove all of the drum brake parts for my disc conversion, do I still need to find the 60" drum to drum rear end? I know some of the S10 already have discs on them, but just incase I can't find one locally, what do I need to look for? Thanks in advance

    In response to Sandking

I chose a 67 Camaro rear end for my 47 Fleetmaster. After I did that I just looked up the kit that disc system matched to it. I think CPP had them a few years ago, but a lot of those places like Summit do also. I just bought rims that matched the 5 lug pattern.
Hope that helps
