Brakes?

Will the brake rotors and callipers form a LP D30 out of a 01 work on a HP d30 from a 94? Thanks.

Re: Brakes?

If you switch the unit bearings and knuckles over too, yes.

In fact, you should switch the axle shafts too - they have bigger joints.

Re: Brakes?

I thought the unit bearings were diffrant. Will the 01 bearings fit the 94 axle?

Re: Brakes?

The knuckles and calipers have to be from the same year.

The unit bearings and rotors have to be from the same year.

It doesn't matter -what- year, just the same as the paired component.

Re: Brakes?

If you're going to change out knucles, why not go WJ?

(BTW I have no idea what i'm talking about, so I don't know if this mod works on all Dana 30s)

Very high cost
Very high complication

Figure $600 and the requirement of a good welder, if you use some used parts. If you go all new, its over a grand.

That is my plan eventually. But I'm still saving up parts. Main reason to swap axels is my 01 has a LP( low pinion) and the 94 has a HP for better driveline angles.

On that thought though will the bearings from either work with the WJ Knuckles

Not to tottally hi-jack and get too far off topic, but is it really that complicated? I've read the how to a few times now and I'm starting to gain confidence that I can do it (with some help).

I wouldn't do it unless I found a 99-04 Grand (I think that is the years) at the Pick and Pull. I would probably end up buying new rotors and definately new pads, and I haven't factored in the steering issues yet, but $600 for?:

WJ calipers*
WJ knuckles with caliper brakets and hardware
WJ rotors
1/4" hub spacers (buyJKS 930 here)
1/4" caliper spacers (easily made with a holesaw and drill press)
Brake fluid

Ok, you replied to my hi-jack so I don't feel so bad now.

I haven't factored in that part yet. I still have a lot of research to do on that. I picked up my ZJ tie rod for $12 at the PnP, so I'm hoping what ever type of steering I figure out, I can get the parts from there.

Like I said, I have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm learning as I go along, and talk out of my ass while doing it.

Re: Brakes?

I'm getting my steering from Ballistic Fab. Here
http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/..._113-1337.html

But you can get what you need from JKS as well. And they have a lot of omfo on the swap on there site as well
http://www.jksmfg.com/
Go to the fab parts page and read and checkout all the parts. I think you can get it all for around $300. last I checked.

Don't worry about the Hi-Jack I'll forgive anyone ONCE :-)
