Default rear drum question...yea I searched

Just wondering, I have rear calipers, brackets, lines and rotors. Can I put these on to my rear drum knuckles, what other parts should I need?


Anyone have a good source for shop diagrams?

you will need the rear hub and e-brake lines...other than that you should be fine.

I so wish I had a shop manual.

You don't need hubs, you need the backing plate that the caliper bracket bolts too. This plate has to be exchanged with the drum plate which means pressing the hubs off and back on. Most people just swap the whole knuckle with hubs and plates to save the trouble.
The rotors just slide onto the wheel bolts, no pressing required.
You also need the disc e-brake assemblies and cables. Those are expensive new, so find used ones. You will likely have trouble getting the lat. links out so you should have spare bolts and bushings available.
PS this has been covered many many times so try searching in the brakes and suspension forum for "drum swap" or "drum disc" Look on this site for instructions http://wac.addr.com/auto/obs/cruise/cruise.html
