Back in the day I looked at the GMT-400 disc brake conversion kits and they were priced at $580. I see they are now over $1200. My entire axle cost me $260 harvested from a Pick-A-Part boneyard and that was complete with rotors, calibers and pads. The spring and snubber perches, plus the welding added $100. Just ordered a parking brake cable equalizer for $15 including taxes and shipping. Way cheaper than any conversion kit I priced.

Yea the kit was a bit less back when I purchased also.

Bought Before Bidenflation.
So LKQ Pick-A-Part has now started charging separately for any fasteners and integrated pieces of equipment. Example: when I harvested the GMT-800 axle with disc brakes, I was charged just for the axle. Now they would charge for the disc brakes, parking brake cables, etc.

This past weekend I honestly revealed the hardware for the u-joints on the drive shaft I harvested. They said I needed to go back and pay for those. I bitched they had not done that before, but no go. That said, I own LKQ stock, so it get back in the form of dividends and share price appreciation.
