Exclamation 15" rear conversion help asap

Looking for the cheapest and vest way to convert to a 15" weld wheel. I know bmr makes a kit. But I heard can use c5 rear brake kit or V6 brake kit. And some of the suspension mods from bmr.. question is will I be able to keep my ebrake? And is there anyway to keep the magnetize rear and just change out trailing arm and toe rods.?

Looking for best advice. Running 15 in rear and 17 in front.. is this possible with out major surgery?

why go to all of that trouble?? get a 17" setup and leave the rest of that alone. Weld RTS or Bogarts work well and keep the brakes stock.

It's major surgery or nothing. Why spend thousands on your setup then get cheap when it comes to the most important part.

He's right. Until you are deep in the 9's a 17" is all you'll need.

Well I willing to do the mods but Wana go the best route. And the tire selection is better with 15s on rear

Is there really no way to keep the e brake with the 15s?

I have the adm kit and no ebrake. Not sure about the bmr kit. Either way it's a pretty big conversion but well worth it. 100% right on the tire selection.
