i have stock drum brakes on the back, would like to do a disc conversion at some time. i have oversized tires on mine as well, 275/50R17 instead of the stock 255/55R17 so no change in clearance, but being this is an R/T, its lowered a bit already :)

Be cool to see the "Do It Yourself" article. Good to know thtere is stuff like that out there. Awhile back, I was talking over on another forum and he put me onto a place that did Disc brake conversions on the older cars, like my '69 Plymouth GTX (which, BTW, has nonpower Drum rakes all the way round and THAT ain't good) That place will sell you the whole nin yards for the GTX setup or give you a list that tells what model cars had which parts that you need and you can get most of THOSE parts from the wrecking yard. Be cool to see something like that for the Dakotas.;)
