1996 F350 Dually

Just swapped my 10.25 with a broken ring and pinion for another 10.25. The wheel cylinders were leaking on that rear anyways. Then the wheel cylinders were leaking on the rear I swapped in. Just replaced the wheel cylinders 2 days ago with new quality wheel cylinders. All new fluid run through.One is already leaking... I'm done messing with time consuming drum brakes.

I already wanted to swap for many other reason. This just finalizes it. Can someone confirm my check list? Is there something I am missing or have wrong?

All part numbers are from RockAuto.

That's pretty much it, but I gotta say, you probably wont be very impressed with the kits like this, as they provide sub-par braking performance.

I looked into it for a long time, and without spending big money on a big brake kit, it's not worth it, so I swapped in a 10.5 with disc brakes already in it. Works great and was practically bolt in and go.

I originally wanted to swap the compete 10.5 in. But they are not cheap in my area. Cheapest I found for a 10.5 rear was $500. Then I still need to redrill the axles for the correct bolt pattern with the correct thread studs.

Anyone know the specs on the brake lines? Flare type? Thread? Length? So I can have them made ahead of time? I can't really have the truck on too much downtime.
