Can disc brakes be put on the rear axle?

I have a 96 f250 and was wondering if disc brakes could be put on the rear axle.
Does anyone make a kit?
What calipers would I use so the parking brake would still work?
And would I have to change the proportioning valve?

^Agreed.

Also, you can swap in super duty rear ends.

No need to change the proportioning valve.

TSM and Blackbirds have kits.
