I bought the Hollister setup for the front. It was a lot more expensive, hope its worth it. I have not installed it yet but the quality of the brackets for the price looked rough. For the rears I bought the setup I posted earlier.

Well I have it all put together and trying to get the system bled and work out the bugs. If anyone does this Hollister kit, some of the parts on the part list are incorrect. Front hoses were not correct, and the instructions were decent but at times confusing.

I would encourage anyone that is interested in Hollister's disc kit to call Dave Chapman. I'm surprised you say some of the hoses are incorrect. Dave is more than willing to help out. He even offers a Rockauto shopping cart list for all needed parts. I would call him direct vs. going through ebay.

He was nice, I emailed him a few times. The front hose part numbers were not correct and I let him know which part numbers worked. I'm just saying don't run out and buy your parts to try to do it over a weekend like I did.

I'd be interested in the parts list. I know someone parting out a 3500 Express van. What do I need? I may go for the Hollister kit in a few months. Swapping engines right now but the opportunity to score the parts from the van would be now.

I have the parts for the DRW set up already. Should have a second axle in a few weeks with the full DRW still on it is time to get on it!

Thanks!

If you email Dave at Hollister he is very helpful, or you can download the instructions and parts list off his website. But I used the OEM 2003 Chevy 2500 HD front rubber lines from Napa, rather than the part numbers Dave had. They are 1/4" and he recommended 3/16". But I needed it on the road and I read a lot of articles that said there is no pressure difference between the 2 sizes. Mine works fine at 1/4" for what its worth.
