One of those pictures was supposed to be the rear axle.

Sid’s Dropped Axles has a kit now. Looks to be late model rotors with 70’s/80’s K10 calipers.

I'm guessing the pictures in the original post are from the kit previously offered by the Hollister Road Company?
They used calipers from a late rmodel GM 1 ton I believe. They are more robust calipers than 1/2 ton stuff from the 70's.

Here's some info and diagrams to do it yourself.

I'd like to again see a ready made kit that uses the large late model stuff, like what Dave offered.

In my opinion a 1 ton truck should have at least 1 ton components, more braking ability is most always welcome.

So...are you gonna sell kits, or parts, or plans? I have decided to upgrade my 3600 with disc, but need a drawing for the caliper bracket.
