Disc brakes in progress

I dropped the truck off at Robert's house to get some work done. I have been traveling a bunch and with a lower back issue, I needed some help with the heavy lifting. Robert and Geronimo agreed to do the disc brake swap and  lowering.

Out with the 40+ year old radius arms and drums!

New master cyl, power booster and Wilwood proportioning valve.

New calipers and rotors!

DJM wrench in the works...

For the DJM tie rod locators you need a special wrench.
The guy I bought from didn't have the wrench, he ground down one he already had.

I emailed DJM and they sent out a wrench for me, no questions, no problem.

Chevy wheels and tires

Craigslist is great! I found tires that would work for the stance I wanted.

Set of 4 rims with tires. Rims are dual bolt pattern 5 on 5 and 5 on 4 1/2. Tires are 2 @ 275/60/15 and 2@ 255/60/15. Tires have tread left but are kinda old. Wheels are in great shape no gouges or scrapes. 

I didn't want the rims, but for $120 I got 4 tires and rims. So the rims are back on Craigslist and the tires are mounted on the smoothies!
The fronts may be a little big, we will see once the brakes and lowering is done. If they are... back on Craigslist.
