prowler 4 wheel disc brakes

I have a 2013 550 XT and on the rear spirit does it looks like there are holes to mount some rear brake calipers. Was wondering if they make a kit or if anyone knows what calipers I could use? I would keep the drives haft brake for park brake. However with 4 wheel discs it would correct the driveline slap when applying the brakes.....would help with the bag of bolts noise....

I converted mine to 4 wheel disc brakes.... http://www.prowlertalk.net/forums/ar...sc-brakes.html

A lot of the parts are universal between the different Prowlers and can be used.

The later model prowlers rear knuckles are drilled for mounting the calipers, front discs, or the ones off a XTZ will bolt on the hub without any problem. Only issue that may need a custom/modification is the brake lines to the rear.

My rear spindles do have the holes drilled and tapped. Did that help with the driveline slap/noise? I think it would help some.

From everything I have read, it helped. I never upgraded to 4 wheel brakes, but driving on the streets more I may look into it. "OUTWEST" posted a great thread on the project, and the parts he used. I think he also has it on his albums
