Re: 4 wheel disc brake conversions - anybody do one?
I bought mine from Baer and it had instructions but the swap is pretty straight forward. If you don't have a booster, I would add one. I have a pretty performance based engine and the vacuum is fine. Huge cams reduce vacuum and can cause challenges but in most cases you will be fine.
As far as the rears go, your remove the brakes and backing plate bolt on the adapter, put the rotor on and bolt up the caliper. In most cases you will have to remove the rear axles but that is easy as well. E-Brakes vary, some are internal (like a mini drum brake) and some just hook up to the stock cables.
As mentioned above, instructions should be available online.
