Erik... I think if you take the whole "kit", including axle assembly, etc. and then measure the rear axle pad distances, I believe from one of Daven's posts that you might be able to graft it end by relocating the spring pads. I think the axle track is quite close. WARNING. These axles used a preloaded spring setup, so be VERY careflu in the removal of the springs, if that is what it takes to get it out! Also, you want to get the proportioning valve assembly/residual valve assembly for the rear discs to operate properly, and still you might have to "tweek" it with an adjustable prop valve depending on weight bias of the installed setup. If you find another setup, I'm in the market for one of those proportioning valve assemblies! Can, regarding the tapered axle disc setup, its slowly coming along. Think I may be on to something, and will post to this board when I have convinced myself of the robustness. I am also looking to try and reduce the complexity of my "first" solution, to make it easier for those without access to fullup machine shops to create.
