I have a 95 Roadmaster and the Differential is shot. Can i get an SS rearend and axle from a junk yard and swap it out? That would give me the disc brake stuff as well. What do you think?

also, don't forget to so the stealth and stealth 2 bolt mod to the proportioning valve, it will make the disk rear work even better. A lower cost alternative is the HIPS mod which is a little cheapass and dangerous but just as effective and perfectly safe if done properly. The instructions here are a little hard to follow but they have all the info-

Neither mod is necessary , it just makes it work better.

If you go with rear disk setup, you REALLY will benefit from doing the proportioning valve bolt mod. Give the "cheapass and dangerous" method some serious thoght and consider this kit from Proforged via Summit Racing....

At only $49 it is a much safer and proven option IMHO. Don't improvise when it comes to your brakes and suspension and use something you know has worked well for others.

You gonna need to bleed the system anyway for the rear swap, why not flush out ALL the brake fluid while you're at it. I have the Proforged brake bolt kit already and plan to install this winter along with a stock brake rebuild and paint up of the calipers.
