Here is (Part 2) and the conclusion of the rear disc brake conversion on my 1990 C1500 truck, which is a GMT400. GMT400’s ran from 1988-1998.

In this episode I cover the installation of the new “firm feel” master cylinder. I also show you how to perform an ABS Delete on one of these trucks. In addition, I cover the parking brake set up and how to deal with some of the issues that might come up.
