    Brakes 5 lug disc conversion

    Hey all. I am in the middle of a suspension refresh and I feel like now would be a good time to put discs on the rear as well. There is a guy near me selling a 5 lug disc 4.10 rear end. Besides that, what kind of parts do I need? Also I have read that you need a new master cylinder, why is that?

    Brakes Bleeding the brakes

    I installed an adjustable proportioning valve and now I need to bleed the brakes. Do I need to jack up all 4 sides of the car to do this? I can’t locate the bleeder valve on the rear drums so I feel like I really have to get under and behind them for it to work.

    Electrical What is this connector?

    What is this connector? It is on the drivers side right next to my power steering filler. It goes into a wiring harness. Also you might be able to see in the first picture, why is power steering fluid on top of the cap? This car has not been run in over 6 months. Is it leaking out somehow?
