That's the kit i used on my dually, it works great...... but i haven't pulled anything with it yet.
I did have to get them to make me a spacer so the calipers would line up.

Paul,

Did this swap space the wheels out?

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: Dana70HD Dually disc brakes

I don't think it did, but i swapped from the 14bolt to the dana at the same time so i couldn't say for sure.
I could take a measurment if you need me to.

I was considering running some different steelies. The diff wheels will space the wheel out a little more vs. the GM 16" steelies so I'm pushing the envelope on clearance w/the amount of drop it will have. No need to get dirty measuring as I'm just running a pros/cons checklist.

Re: Dana70HD Dually disc brakes

Any issues with proportioning, or was fine as-is?

Also, how did you make your hardline-to-rubber line brake hose connection? Any pics?

I haven't had any problem with the stock proportioning valve.

I just made a tab with a hole in it and used one of the push retainers like the front uses. Sorry no pics.

Re: Dana70HD Dually disc brakes

bringing this post from the dead. I recently picked up an 88 dually I'll be towing with. Curious how this ended up working out.
