dont you guys read petersons 4x4?? all u need to do (if u have a big bearing 9") get the brakets, pads, calipers off a 95 and up explorer(bolt on with the 4 axles shaft bolts) then get a new bolt patter drilled in the rotors, or find some that fir, but thats the most bolt on you can get for cheap.. go to the u-pull yards... Later Mike

i don't know about you but I would hate having to have the holes drilled for them to fit on my axle shafts. I'm sure its not cheap to have that done either.

Thats probably no cheaper than what Plato2k5 and I have on our Ford 9". Brakets are only $15, plus F150 rotors, Chevy 1500 calipers.

The only benifit i could see about doing the 8.8 disc swap on the 9" is a few things...

First off you would not be required to have a welder as the 8.8 will bolt to the housing end.

Second, you'd gain the e-brake back with a nice setup that uses a drum on the backside of the disc.

I do miss not having an e-brake but i'm an Auto so its not that big of a deal.
