    Cool

    On my PC this post is now two pages long.
    Not sure how many page on a smart phone user.
    For the old school PC users I will put this very good picture on the 2nd page.
    To give guys thinking about this conversion a picture of this very clean set up.

    Has anybody had issues with the disc brakes without a dust shield? I'm still tinkering with G20 discs and wondering if I should bother with it.


    (Spoiler alert: While progress is slow, there is progress. I have now discovered about a dozen ways that do not work well, biggest issue is getting the caliper properly centered on the rotor AND clearing the sway bar and shock. Custom made hoses will be required for certain. I am trying to do this using all flat plate and spacers as I do not have access to machinery to put the nice bend in plate steel like Michel's brackets have.)

    Front Disc brakes 2019

    Front DiscBrakes2019

    Misinformation: I have heard some people are being told these brackets are no longer available which simply is not true.

    Yes there are a limited number of sets available. Is your Van telling you its time for this upgrade?


    If you just have questions or want more information pleaseEmail me at m1dadio@gmail.com I am happy to help with your questions.

    If you are new to Vanning or the idea of disc brakes and want or need to learn more about this disc brake set up; you can use the search feature above and search "discbrakes2014" , Front discbrakes 2015 and/or "Discbrakes" , wheel fit, ect. You will find tons of information from the many vanners .

    You need to consider your wheels when changing to disc brakes. These photos are GM 15 X 7 factory rims with 3.75" offset they fit with a country mile of clearance. YES;Most modern 14" wheels will fit, others will fit with a little grinding off the calipers. Many older 14s (pre 1974 drum brake) will not fit onto this disc brake set up.

    Thank you
