It's easier to swap the whole axle. you might need to use your old brake hose, I know I did when I did my swap in to a 1st gen. I also had to adapt the E-brake cables, but if you you have a 2nd gen this shouldn't be an issue. You can just swap the brake package, but you're going to have to pull the axles

You have to swap out the axles. The disc brake axles are 1/4" shorter than the drum axles. I did this swap to my Xtreme last year. Was a piece o'cake :)
