95 wrangler rear brakes
So I have a 1995 jeep wrangler yj. I bought it about 3 months ago and replaced all front brakes (caliper, pads, and rotor) now I'm trying to figure out the rear breaks. The people before me must of done a disc conversion. I'm pretty sure it's a stock rear but can't tell because I can't read all the numbers on the long tube on the rear axle. The caliper says Varga on them. I need all rear components. The calipers are locked up and the pads and rotors are shot. I've been doing research and found that 1993-2001 Lincoln continental rear components will work, but I've talked to a few people and the said they won't. The Lincoln bolt pattern is 5x4.25 which the yj is 5x4.5. I'm in a lost place trying to figure out what to do without buying the conversion kit for 5 to 7 hundred dollars. Any advice or suggestions?
First identify your rear axle, which can be done by looking at the differential cover. You can google around, or try the link below, and find sites which have pictures of the cover (shape, size, and number of bolts). Once you've got the rear axle type, you should be able to source brake components. I doubt the dana 35 has been converted to disc because the conversion is pretty price prohibitive, but not to be ruled out.
The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!
