Thats right.... We now have a disc brake conversion for your D44 or D60 8 lug closed knuckle front axle.
This kit will fit the Chevy, Ford, Dodge closed knuckle 3/4 to 1 ton 8 Lug front axle with slight modification to your axle.

Modification consist of, the customer will have to have turn the O.D. of their axle hub down and move their axle shock mounts in a little.

Blackbirds also recommends the upgrade to a bigger brake booster and master cylinder.

These 2 kits have been road tested for over 8 months now on 2 seperate trucks.

This kit utilizes a Dual piston caliper and a slide on rotor.
As always Blackbirds has free shipping to the lower 48 states.
at a cost of $535.00 to your door.
