1961-71 Dodge Truck Disc Brake Conversion, All MOPAR!by kenny exline on 02/19/14
We have found that rotors and calipers from a 77 newyorker are easily converted to use with the 1961-71 D100 spindle. I recently came across a for sale listing for a front axle from a 71 D100 Dodge. The owner just purchased the truck and was going to do an independent front suspension conversion and did not need the front axle anymore. Somewhere in the trucks history the front brakes were converted to disc brakes. I purchased the parts and they were really well made. I was not able to find out who actually did the conversion and as far as I can find no company ever offered a conversion that used these same parts. So I completely lucked into this one except for the fact that the post office lost the passenger side spindle and parts, so I only received the driver side. But with some research I was able to find that the brakes were from a 77 new Yorker and adapted with a simple 1/2" thick plate and a small spacer behind the spindle.
The brakes work great now and I hope someone starts making them!
