If you need bushings and sleeves for the deavers I have them in stock. I'm in Deer Valley.
Thanks
I bought them off the Deaver trailer at the swap meet so they gave me new ones, but I’ll definitely come to you if they wear out!

So didn’t get much done this week due to starting a new job and helping friends move, but I was able to clean up the rear end and get some rivets out with an air hammer. I ran out of light so I don’t have completed pictures but here is the start:



I’ll try to get more pictures tomorrow if the progress and a surprise swap.

Late on update but still waiting on parts so she can rest on her own weight. Still trying to decide between bolt on or weld on disc brakes. Any thoughts?

5x5.5? or 5x4.5?
It’s 5x5.5 right now, I’m ordering 4140 chromoly 5x4.5 axles soon. I want the same lug pattern back and front. I had to borrow my brothers rims temporarily for the rear to be able to move the truck

I haven't done a 5x4.5 disk brake setup yet. But a quick cross reference shows this setup SHOULD work. Don't take my word for it, check return policy before buying parts lol.

1) Ruff Stuff 9" weld on bracket - figure out your housing diameter first

2a) 76 Cadillac Eldorado Rear Calipers (if you want to retain parking brake)
2b) 76 Chevy K2500 Front Caliper or any aftermarket clipper that uses the 7.05" mounting (if you do not want parking breaks)

The above items will fit/work the only thing I'm not sure on is the rotor. this rotor should work though

3) 75 Dodge Ramcharger 4x4 Front Rotor
