The brakes on my trailer are shot, I am looking to convert
from drum to disc brakes. I got a price on a complete kit.
coupler, lined the whole shibang so to speak. 890 casholas
dual axel also. What do ya think. I haven't priced the system
yet an it is from Wright Trailers, close by to me

Hi Jim.
All good improvements.
My own favorite store for brakes, lights, tires and wheels, etc. is Shadow Trailers in CA.
Free shipping, no taxes, and great prices. They offer Kodiak stainless calipers,
complete kit for $400/axle. http://www.trailerandtruckparts.com/KODIAK-10-Trailer-Disc-Brake-Assy-Stainless-Steel-DAC-Complete-1-Axle-Kit-with-stainless-steel-calipers_p_661.html#.VudgzZwrKM8
You can probably do better buying axles locally due to freight costs.

I replaced my drums for discs. All ss hardware incl. break fluid reservoir. Don't remember price but seemed reasonable. This is company I used.
