The brakes should bolt right up, you'll have to change everything though, including lines and hoses. Power door lock problem is probably in the area where the wiring goes from the door to the cab. There is a bellows type cover on the harness that goes thru there. Look for any worn or broken wires on either side (passenger /driver), front or rear doors too. If they're broke or grounding, solder 'em, shrink tube 'em and be done! If no wires chafed or broke, go to the relays in the relay center under your hood. Check one by one, they are relatively cheap to buy($12-$15) Good Luck 'Bro!

Need only replace lines in rear, If i remember correctly, from the junction on the rear differential to the wheels, also attach a braided line to the new rear calipers to be able to "float" with the caliper. Soft lines are ok, but braided is the way to go for not much more. See if you can find a truck with 4 wheel discs and copy how they look, all the connections and everything. Electrical stuff is not really my department, but i assume following wires would lead you to any breaks. If u don't know how to check for a ground fault, you're probably in your over your head for electrical, get help. I'm NOT being mean, electrical stuff is VERY tuff! If your wipers work when ON, and ONLY don't work on delay, your "intermittent wiper module" may be dead. This could have to with a ground fault problem, which COULD cause the turn signal problem. The wipers share a ground with the left turn signal. The only wires that go to power door locks from cab are for relays, that are in "relay center" under hood. Good luck!

I put disk on the back of mine and didnt change anything..The lines still go to the back of the wheel just like they did with the drums but you will have the small rubber line that comes with the calliper and you hook your brake line to that..Your emergency brake will be a pain in the butt.. but its doable..

IF you have the 94 take the brake lines off it and use them if you are worried..
