I just did the SSBC conversion that is in 4wd hardwhare. It is a nice complete kit with good tech support. Look up ssbc.com I believe.

I have always been told that the braking difference between the rear disc (on a AMC 20) and the drum (set up correctly) was not noticeable. I considered the Warn set up mostly for towing. Has anyone seen an appreciable difrence from the rear disc (AMC 20) set up?

I did the Suzuki rotors/Nissan calipers and yes there is a great deal of difference in the braking. No fading, and much quicker stops, keep on working when wet. Highly recommended.

Drums are just terrible when wet, that is why they no longer make drum brakes.

I made a few changes to the article on the Pirate4X4 site. Do some searching and you will find my write up this disk brake upgrade. I got the emergency cable to work with these calipers as well.
