Drum to disk rear brake conversion 2002 Chevy Fourwinds

I just received the conversion kit. The drum brakes just didn't work to my liking. This is a simple straight forward conversion. Will let you all know how I like it as soon as I install it after TG.

New disc brakes work great.

It's good to hear. I'm thinking of doing the same upgrade to my 99 Pace-Arrow. Did you piece yours together, Or buy a kit? If a kit where did you get it?

I'm interested in this too for my 2002 Four Winds 5000 28A.

Could you share with us the specific part # you ordered? Did you convert the parking brake as well?

Was it one of these?

I've also seen where some people figured out which upgraded knuckles to swap on the front end for the E450, I'm curious if anyone has figured out a similar option for the Chevy E3500 too?

It was for the Dana 70. I did need the parking brake calipers. They come from a Cadillac Eldorado. Be sure and get the brake line valve. Call them they are very knowledgeable.
The only problem is there are no brackets for the E-brake cable to secure it to the axle. I made mine out of some 3/16 stock that I bent and drilled to secure it to one of the leaf spring shackle nuts.
