What is this axle going in? Im sure you can find the parts at a yard, you'll need the caliper brackets, knuckles, and hubs.

Does anyone know if Ford ever made a disk brake setup with Kingpins?
Not on a Dana 44.

I've seen custom backing plate that us a Chevy style caliper on Ford Kingpins. However that was the large style King pin, you've the smaller style.
I've also remember something about someone removing the inner kingpin knuckle and getting some balljoint knuckles on....

Make sure they have 2 3/4" tubes, all the 78-79 ones I've seen and measured are 3".

I was the one thinking about taking the inner c's out and swapping in balljoint units. I haven't done it yet, but I'm going to. I'm currently gathering parts.

Yeah I think i'm gonna just find a one with discs already on it that way I don't have to go to all the extra work .

Anyone wanna buy a 69' dana 44 rs (high pinion) w/king pins????

Don't have the knuckles or spindles, but with my understanding you can't use them anyways

Anyone know what year they started putt'n disc brakes on pickups??
74 or 75?? somewhere in there?
