9" rear disk brake conversion

Post by Str8sixfan » Thu Mar 29, 2012 10:51 pm

A buddy of mine...actually the one who gave me the D30...he's finishing up putting the D44/9" under his dad's XJ (with a 5.7L LS out of a vette in it) and wanted to know what disk brake convo tricks there were out there. I told him I seemed to remember a Chevy Caprice disk working, but I felt like that was for a 8.8 for some reason. Any tips?

If you'd like a design rendering drawing of your rig, shoot me a pm.

The only stock disk brake 9 inches were from 74-79 Lincoln's, they are 28 spline with 5 on 5 bolt pattern. These are a pain in the azz to find in my area
