anyone converted a 1970 k10 to disc brakes?

If so, what will I need? Front end only is fine- I have heard that 73-86 trucks that are 4x4 could be used as a donor- is that right? Thanks, Scott

Re: anyone converted a 1970 k10 to disc brakes?

My 70 K10 has a 1974 Dana 44 8 lug donor upfront with disc and Corporate 14 8 lug in the rear (which I also converted to disc brakes). The advantage besides having a much easier system to maintain, in the front I also have a nice swaybar as well. The swap will require some shock mount adjustment but well worth it in my experience.

Any 71+ gm front solid axle will bolt in.
