so i need to start thinking about front brakes for my ranger. The dana 44 i have is out of a early bronco and it has drums. i was just wondering if the knockles and all brake components from a full size dana 44 would work for it. need some help with that
or i know i was told that i could go chev brakes

ya you can use disk brakes from a dana 44 , or you can use chevy stuff to , i have a eb dana 44 in my ranger too i have chevy flattops knuckles , spindle calipers and caliper brackets and am using a ford dana 44 rotor to keep the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern , if your going to use chevy stuff you need to make shure you get the right spindles as the ones from newer chevs are for a larger bearing which wont work if your going to use a ford rotor
