Disk brakes??????

Is it possible to replace the shoe brakes with disk brakes on the rear axle of my duelly 1995 F 350? It still has the stock axle.

Did a Google search for "Rear disk brake conversion kit ford f350" - a bunch of hits came up. Hopefully, it will help.

just a clearification its spelled "DISC"

as for the op's question. its possible. iv done it on rangers using parts from a mustang cause they use the same rear end just different brakes.

If you can find another vehicle that used the same rear end and had disc brakes they should ALMOST swap directly on. A company may also make a kit, or you can mod the kits for other vehicles to work on your truck.

Swap to sd rear, Dana 80 and use sd rotors/wheels up front, 2wd conversion is much simpler than the 4x4 one

I have not seen a conversion for a DRW sterling 10.25. I would love to have a conversion kit.

This looks like a very good design. Are there any other companies out there?
