      Direct bolt-on of new trailing arm/brake assemblies. Easy to do. Even the brake lines and e-brake bolt up.

      I upgraded my 95 to 99 discs and love the improved braking.

      You got it....just slack the tensioner and put it on the same way as the old one, as long as all idlers spin freely.

      The tensioner is kind of tight to get at. I've used a crescent wrench once on...
