I did it by installing a later model rear axle. They are easy to come by and cheap. Lots of advantages.... gearing etc. Last night I replaced the wheel cylinders on my '92 axle in my '59. They were in stock at napa for $15.65 each, and that's for a one ton. Actually last night was the first time I ever dealt with a brake job with self adjusting brakes. Sort of clever how they work, but lots of fussy little parts....Still better than crawling under the truck and trying to remember which way to turn the spoon ......
