homebrew driveshaft brake info.

Anybody done one on a 203 or 205? I'm doing a rear disk swap on a 78 3/4 ton. If so a parts list would be cool.
Thanks, Shaun

I am thinking I saw awhile back that High Angle Drive Lines was making rear disc brake kits for 205. Jess is his name and he goes by onetoncv on the PBB.

His name is "Brad" he's got a SWEET 72 that he is building a 60 rear steer axle to put in...soon. I just talked to him last week (he's using my 60 arm for his 60 front he's building)......He told me it was an old "Porsche" rotor he had laying around.....old front caliper also....had a "mechanic" bud of his "rig" it up......

didn't look like anythign but a caliper and a round peice of steel. I doubt highly that that's a porche rotor. I'm sure porche being the high performance cars that they are, would have atleast used a vented rotor?

that pic is from 1fnhik5 over on the www.coloradok5.com board. If you go over there and search you can find the threads on that buildup.
