My 66 4x4 is in need of better brakes on the front and I have been thinking about disc brake conversion, for which there is a kit fro roughly 750$ on Evilbay. However, I also need one seal replaced and who knows what else. Wondering if there is a later front end from a Bronco or truck with disc brakes that might bolt in. Any information out there on this swap?
Thanks,
Rich

Thanks Ice, how about power steering conversion? My truck has the old main drag link with the spring and adjusting screw which with big tires tend to be a little sloppy. Any info on what I can replace the drag link with and still use the original box?
