: I've never done this swap personally, but have been told stock wheels WON'T work with this setup. There is not enough clearance for the caliper to fit inside the wheel...If you use aftermarket wheels of some kind you should be o.k. I would check the fit first. WARNING: All things considered this WILL be an expensive swap and brake swapping is not really something you want to learn by experience...I would definately advise following in the footsteps of someone who has a PROVEN setup and do EXACTLY as they did, no improvising.
I fully agree with Rocnroll. Your safty counts. I have done the upgrade to 11 inch and recomend it. Plenty of stopping power. Now if you are going to larger engine I might consider the ft disk option. Cost for the 11inch upgrade when all is done should be around $1,000.00. Kits when available go for around $750.00-add the 2 hoses-new or re use hubs and getting the studs removed and re inserted. If mine was a daily driver I most likely go with the duel master cyl that Herm sells. The 11 inch kit is easy to install and only general knowledge is needed. Bill
