I looked through some of the post but I didn't see what I was looking for. I got a 69 c10 and was wondering if anyone on here changed out components from newer trucks or if everyone just bought the disc conversion kit?? I was wondering what newer stuff bolted up to get the disc brakes.

Yeah I've been watching this one hoping they'd come by
You may want to get hold of LMC truck and get a catalog then you can compare part numbers.

Unless your going to dropped spindles, everything from `73 to `87 grab spindles rotors, calphers, master, booster, prop valve, even lines if they are in good shape, grab steering link complete ( this will save you a few bucks ) you`ll have to drill out the holes to use the later model steering link, just use a step drill, buy new `73 to `87 ball joints and install everything or you can grab the entire front crossmember complete and install as a unit, but if you do the entire crossmember route you`ll have to pull the motor or fiquire out a way to support it as the engine mounts directly to the crossmember, if your going install power steering you`ll need to buy the rez kit or CPP unit ( plate ) that mounts the box correctly in the right position up and out....hope this helps. Note you also can use suburban two wheel drive up to `91, nothing from after those years will work....! another note you will have to drill two new holes in your frame for additional bolts if you use the entire front crossmember.

Mine was swapped already when I bought it. Previous owner found a wrecked '72 and put the rear axle, and front disc on it to convert to front disc, and 5 bolt pattern. He also found a HD rear swaybar for the rear and added that too, so it corners very nicely.
