I seem to remember there was an issue with the MII/Pinto 8inch rear and disk brake conversion kits.
I am swapping to a 5 lug, and can either have the axles welded/redrilled or use an earlier Mustang 8 inch rear (have to modify the spring perches a tad)(width difference is not a problem) but I know for sure there are a ton of conversion kits for those.
So I am wondering if things have changed or not.
Thanks,
Russ

The common way to do it was to use Lincoln Versailles rear brakes, (could also use the whole axle) but I haven't seen a Versailles in years.
