Is there not a complete rear end from another B model that would bolt up?That rear disc conversion kit is very well engineered. I have it and am very happy with it.
For LSD - Jegs makes an Eaton clutch-style posi that's very affordable. You can also buy a Eaton or Yukon clutch-type posi if you want. Although people don't like the fact that they do wear, they are not difficult nor expensive to rebuild, and can be tuned to behave however you'd like. Personally I've run Eatons in my cars and I'm happy with them. The gear-style LSDs are fixed bias ratios and are what they are.
In short - noIs there not a complete rear end from another B model that would bolt up?
Thanks everyone for the feedback. A rear disc brake just looks so much cooler than my big o drums. lol. Plus my father has a 56 Chevy wagon with a 9 inch and Wilwood red discs and I can’t let him one up me! lolGM and others have a history of products with seized rear calipers. Rear drum brakes have not disappeared yet from what I see in parking lots.
Search "seized rear caliper" and "rear caliper bolt" on this forum to see what can happen with rear calipers.
Unless you need repeated hard hot stops every day the larger heavy duty drums on a wagon(and B4U) when in working condition are enough to keep the car straight while the fronts do most of the real stopping.
Please provide a link that states they are working on a wagon axle kit. The 91-96 wagons were not a high production product and the number still on the road verses those owners who want rear disk brakes seems like a very limited market to design and produce parts for.Kore3 has front and rear kits. As noted, the current rear kits do not accommodate a parking break. They are developing one and are hoping for it to be available in the next 4-6 months, pending supply chain and other COVID hurdles to finalize the product (I am assuming being able to get their team together)
Z09B4U - happy to pass along the information. As you will see, they already have a rear kit for our cars. The kit they are working on is a rear kit with function of the parking brake. If you don't want a parking brake you can order from them today. I did send a message to Navy Life last week to see if he is still producing his kits, since the parking brake function appears to work. I have not received a reply.Please provide a link that states they are working on a wagon axle kit.
