Yeah, that's where I got the $800 dollar price range from...If you go to SSBC's website, www.ssbrakes.com they have kits for many different vehicles. They'll build packages for custom vehicles. They built a brake package for my 91 Toyota pickup on Dana 60's consisting of master cylinder, S/S lines, frt/rr disc's, adjustable porportional valves for frt/rr, and frt/rr line locks, all for around $1200.

I don't know why, but the brake upgrade/conversion kits for my suburban are outrageous. I don't understand it. I wish they weren't, but I'll deal with it.
Yea but did ya read the description
EGR Performance Brakes offers a New Rear Disc Brake Conversion Kits for 1988 and later models when fitted with Single Rear Wheels. The kit fits either Dana 60, 70 or 80, Semi & Full Floating, Ford 9” and GM 10 & 14 bolt axles! We have kits for both ½ ton, ¾ and 1 Ton HD models. Now get Superior Braking Performance & Heat Control, Faster & Shorter Stops and Increased Front Brake Life. Get Improved Brake Performance like the new trucks experience!
From thier description you can only run them when our running single rears. Your giving up a lot already if you've got a dually and have to take the outside set of wheels off.
That kit should clear the inside wheel no problem.
The only thing I dont like about it is the price, otherwise it looks solid.
The price is my big issue, like you say if it gives the advertised performance it's money well spent, if you dont have big braking gains I wonder how hard it is to convert back to the drums and return the kit.
I didnt see if their were any permanent modifications made to the axle to prevent returning to drums.
I love disc brakes but on big trucks you need real big discs.
Have you ever looked under the 6500 series trucks? They run discs on the rear, the 6500's I drive at work have great stopping abillity when fully loaded, and thier duallys.
