Got a pair of Grand Waggy D44's . . .

Already did the flat-top knuckle coversion for the SOA high-steer (going on a YJ and to the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern).

But I'm having difficulty trying to find a caliper mounting bracket for the rear to swap to discs. I tried Warn's bracket for the TJ D44 disc conversion and I tried the caliper mounting bracket for the Grand Cherokee's, but both are too small, (not enough area to even drill out mounting holes.)

I have searched on the 'net, but am only finding info on the D60 disc swap. There was one post on the swap but didn't specifically mention which GM rear disc caliper bracket may work, (the thread said '03 GM truck but he didn't get amny replies to as if it would work). I logged onto the fsj-digest, but folks over there are also looking to do a similar swap and can't find a comparable bracket.

Fabbing one is almost out of the question only because there are very few good machining shops around here, (who would be willing to try). I was trying to do this low buck so as not to look into the TSM or Stainless steel brake kit.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Awesome!!

Thanks Tony.

That never came up in my search, but I never would have thought to look up 300Z caliper barckets . . . Very Happy
