I ran across this today. Thought it might be a valuable resource for someone...

The lincoln/seville mod is pretty well documented with the 4x4 crowd. Classicbroncos.com has some writeups on the conversion for the 9" - explorer 8.8 rear discs w/e-brake are pretty popular conversions as well. without the e-brake, converting an 8.8 or 9" to discs is a very easy swap - $10 brackets, s-10 front calipers, 11" rotors (got the parts laying around to convert my old bronco)

Might come in handy for the 8" going in the
midget. Thanks Rob.
