Does anyone have any info on disc brake conversion of 55-59 chevy 3600 (3/4 or 1 ton) and retain the 8 lug axles in front. The back is an easy fix but I have had no luck in finding anything to do the front. Want to keep the bigger axles because I plan to tow a hoarse trailer and would rather not do it with 1/2 ton stuff. Thanks for any help.Tony

There is only about 300 lbs difference in the capacity of a 1/2 ton front axle vs3/4 ton axle and there are many kits that would make the 1/2 ton axle get muchbetter brakes. The trailer would put weight mostly on the rear. Check with scarebird- he was working on a kit for these but I have never heard that it was on the market.
