    all the current measurements are from mounting surface to mounting surface

    Thankyou. Theres no point in measuring anywhere else BUT mounting point, since thats what the whole point of this is.

    Can anyone fill that out? I really need to know how much narrower if any the 2wd is so I can see if I can get some 275's or not.

    Well, what im thinking, is machinging the rotor mating surface down, and possible my wheel mating surface down, only think ill have to make sure of is the caliper to wheel clearance.

    What actual part differes in length for the two rears, can i get a drum and convert it to disk and have the 59" length still?

    i know you can conver a drum rear to disc but im not sure about the measurments after that

    i may try and tear a couple rears down at a yard and measure them that way

    Well, correct me if im wrong BUT the disk version is only 3/4" bigger each side...if you run wheels with the same offset as 4x4 s10 rims shouldnt you be okay (a little tire stickin out)... or even run a rim with 3/4" more offset.
    Just a thought.
    let me know wat you think... im interested in doing the same sawp and would love do have disks on the back!

    Good luck finding a wheel with 3/4 more offset.

    In my case, its low enough my tires are basically flush with the fenders, so, 3/4 isnt an option or it will just sit on the fenders, since in the rear of course you dont have camber to tuck the wheels.....
