Disc brake ?

I am thinking about upgrading my current drum brakes to disc .I have to replace my drums and backing plates any way and i figured the total cost would be $600 ish for the same 10" drums i have now. I would love the extra performance that i know disc will bring and after looking at Inland's site noticed that they have a 12" tandem axle kit for $1350. My question is will these fit my Stream? My current backing plates use 4 bolts and i think these use 5, also my current drums and rims are 6 on 5.5. Can any one provide any information on this?

I'm sure Inland can answer all your questions, why not give them a call?

You cannot install 12 inch brakes, be it electric or disc, in place of 10 inch brakes.

Ten inch brakes use a square 4 hole mounting bracket.

Twelve inch brakes use a round 5 hole mounting plate.

Sorry.

Andy,

Do you stock 10" disc with 6 x 5.5. I would really like the upgrade at a little more than twice the cost it seems the time is right. Is there any hope for me?

Our information says 10 inch disc brakes are available with a 5 on 4 1/2 hub only.

Sorry.
