Hello, well i've decided to get the disc brake conversion kit for my Rubicon. I was going to buy all new wheel cylinders and and shoes but after totaling it all up it is only about $100 more for the conversion kit. Does anyone have experience with this kit? Both installing and how they work. I've read that its a good upgrade.

Heres another thing I dont understand, my 03' Rincon has front drum brakes but they stop on a dime, I couldn't ask for better. But the Rubi front brakes stink, I know they have a problem now, but they were never that good, it doesn't look like there is that much difference in design. At least from the pix i've seen, never had the Rincon apart.

Well I put the brake kit in today. Was a little more work than I thought but It was cold so maybe it felt longer than it was. Anyway the only thing that was a pain was getting the brake lines rerun correctly. Actually I had to do something different, they say the calipers go toward the back of the wheel and I had to turn it to the front side to get the hoses to run with stretching or rubbing the tire. I wont get to really ride until Saturday but its already better. I'll give a better review after using it.
