I finally got my Blazer back from a new motor & tranny

I ended up going with a new GM crate motor a 383SP and a 700R so far so good runs amazing. Anyway now I feel like I need to upgrade the brakes to all disk. What is the best way to do this? Also can I still use my factory wheels?

Thanks PG

Get a 12 bolt (assuming you have the stock rear end) disc conversion kit. You'll probably want to get an adjustable proportioning valve as well.

Captain fab sells a bracket kit on here. Look in the vendor section. He offers a set of brackets for 15” wheels and emergency brake calipers.

Thanks everyone. Not as costly as I was guessing. PG
