    Has anybody mounted the S10 rear disc brakes to the moser press on bearing axle ends?

    Has anyone who has done this s10-blazer rear disc conversion found a proportioning valve or tried a valve from an s10 or blazer or from a third gen camaro or trans am that will work?

    I haven't seen this addressed yet. Will the conversion work with "C" clip eliminators?

    I doubt it, the S10 backing plates that bolt to the axle flange are fairly thick and would interfere with the eliminator.

    That's ok, the rear's got 456 gears and that will not work for me on the street. So I'm pretty sure those things are gone anyway.

    I know this may be heating a dead horse but the pictures no longer show. Does anybody have details on which brake cables we should use or pictures of the install

    S10/Blazer Rear Disc on 2nd Gen F-Body

    Parts you will need:

    • 1 - Driver side 4WD backing plate, e-brake assembly (GM PN-15064302)
    • 1 - Passenger side 2WD backing plate, e-brake assembly (GM PN-15773309)
    • 8 - 3/8 bolts, lock washers and nuts to mount backing plate to rear housing
    • 3/8 washers to shim the backing plate for perfect fitment of the caliper to rotor (2 each bolt in my case)
    • 2 - Driver side 4WD caliper, or passenger side 2WD caliper, mix & match (Loaded kit w/ brackets & pads Cardone PN-164712) (Loaded kit w/ brackets & pads NAPA PN-TS 1422228)
    • 2 - Caliper brackets - if needed
    • 1 - Brake pad set - if needed (HAWK HB119F-594)
    • 4 - caliper bracket bolts (GM PN-15726460)
    • 2 - banjo bolts (GM PN-10286122)
    • 2 - 2WD Blazer rotors (NAPA 4886725) (Powerslot 8638PSL & 8638PSR)
    • 1 - Master Cylinder
      80 Power disc/disc T/A = 18030322 (18M80)
      79 Power disc/disc Vette = 18030333 (18M91)
      70 Manual disc/disc Vette = 18030269 (18M27)
    • 2 - Brake hoses (you can use stock Blazer hoses or any braided stainless ones with a 10mm banjo fitting)
    • 1 - Prop valve (stock 80 T/A works, I used a Summit adjustable)
    • New style brake cable (Could use the Blazer cables, but Lokar universal would be less work) <-- I took the cable from the Blazer cable & put it inside the F-Body rear cable sheath so I could use factory mounting brkts.
    • Brake fluid, gear oil, axle seals

    Outside diameter: 11.61"
    Height: 2.87"
    Thickness: .79"
