disk breaks 2nd gen

Post by gkpost on Sat Mar 21, 2015 1:07 pm

I just did a search and spent some time reading but was still unclear about 1st or 2nd gen conversion. Are they the same? Could some one clear this up. Also could I get a parts list for the 2nd gen. I just painted my van I'm putting some striping and art on it and will post pics when I'm finished. I read something about moving a sway bar mount if you do the disk breaks, is that true ? Any other mods or problems with the disk break conversion?
Thanks for any help. GK.

gk I'm pretty sure that M1dadio is the only source currently for the conversion brackets. His brackets are designed so you don't have to move the shock and he provides a complete parts list and is excellent with tech help if you need it. I'm sure when he sees this post he'll chime in. I'm almost positive the brackets work on both 1st and 2nd gen vans. In the meantime you can look at post by M1dadio and probably answer all your questions.

I had to make some new mounts for my sway bar for the disk brakes on my 2nd gen.... My caliper hit the original mounts.
