Ford 9" with 8.8 disks

Wanting to do a disk brake swap on my 9" before it goes in, anyone ever done this swap? Heard it can be done but not a whole lot of info on the net about it,
Don't really feel like spending 400-500 bux on a kit, or any suggestions on what kinda junkyard stuff I can use?
Nick

lincon versihad a disk brake 9 inch and some ford mid 70s station wagons
had disk brakes
but good luck finding one
the calipers and mounting brackets from a camaro will fit with a small mod
basicly drill holes out bigger but we used the camaro rotors
and after market axles so not shure if it would work with your rotors

nick, no BS its really expensive.

i've been wanting to do it, but.....

the problem is, finding rotors taht will fit over teh 9" flange.

I was told that sami front rotors work, so i got a used set.. no they don't work.
recently i was told that sidekick front rotors.. have not tried that yet.
Teh calipers are easy, (going to use some nissan ones i have) the rotors are the problem.

they won't work, due to the different offset from teh bearing to the WMS.
so its not a bolt on deal. you would have to make costom mounts.
and ifi i'm not mistaken, they were 5x4.5 bolt patern. don't think the rotors fit over teh normal 9" flange.

Check on some of the mustang forums.. I think some of them had a 9" rear end and I know it's a popular swap.. I think gm calipers and some re drilled rotors.. Something along those lines???

but we did it the bearing to wms is the same in my 9 inch in my chevelle
and my chevelle has explorer drums and backing plates
think the diferance was diamater of axle flange on stock axles to fit rotor

they won't fit my 9" stock shafts, or my alloys.

Prolly should have a e-brake so that's one less thing the cops won't look at when I go through a roadblock
