Rear discs compatibility question
A few weeks ago converted my 98 TJ from drum to discs and had used the components from a 97 GC. I just came upon a good deal for a set of front and rear 4.56 geared axles (D30/D35) and am planning on swapping out the current ones for theses when I do the lift this or next weekend.
I want to retain the discs in the rear and instead of pulling them off my current axles I want to buy another set from the jy. I have found a 2002 GC that has the full assemblies. The only issue I see is that the calipers mount to the front of the axle and look much bigger. I also know that the 2002 has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern where as mine is a 5 on 4.5 so I know the rotors will not work.
All the other GC left in the yard have been scavenged for the parts.
Will the brackets and calipers from this 02 work on my 98?
I figure that I can recoop some of my money back by selling the stock axles and it might be a bit of an added benefit for the rear to have discs. I could also throw in the drum assemblies since I kept those from the original conversion.

My idea of help from the man above is a sniper on the roof.
