GM Dana 60--- calipers are held in place by keepers. 3/4 ton disc conversions have been around for a while. 3/4 ton are mounted by slide bolts. Soooo I guess if anyone has done this conversion, I can only assume that the 3/4 ton works as effectively as the 1 ton calipers due to a lot less pedal force to move the caliper with equal stopping capability. Save alot in weight also. 3/4 ton are usually dual piston also. Cannot comment on MC/booster. Any input.

I ditched the d60 calipers and run 3/4 ton Chevy all around. There are vendors that sell the brackets. Stops fine. I'm running a 1ton dodge MC and an adjustable prop valve.
